O'Malley cited a possible reason for Strickland's scandalous behavior

UFC lightweight champion Sean O'Malley has expressed his opinion that the mental problems of the promotion's former middleweight titleholder Sean Strickland could be due to missed punches in sparring sessions.

"Anyone who says they have the urge to kill people is probably out of order. You either love or hate, and killing people for no reason... He's honest about it, but it's fucking crazy.

Coming to the gym, sparring, getting hit in the head... Not that he was hit that hard, but if you spar every day, it makes you aware of it," O'Malley said in a fresh edition of the author's YouTube channel.

We will remind, earlier Strickland threatened to leave the UFC, if prmotion does not give him a rematch with Dricus Du Plessis.
