LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Sean Strickland, a middleweight contender in the UFC, posted a strange video of himself on Instagram taking a shower while holding an AK-47. The MMA fighter, who recently suffered a devastating knockout loss to title contender Alex Pereira in July, posted the video on November 5 as part of his "tacticool course" and urged supporters to do the same.

The 31-year-old native of North Carolina says in the footage, "I'm gonna give you guys some advise. The most f*****g American thing you can do is shower with your AK. It's not at all strange. Strickland also posted a caption for the video, "Lesson number 3 in my 'taticool' course. You always, always shower with your AK. She likes to be dirty, but not that dirty."

Fans were quick to tell Strickland that the AK-47 was created in the Societ Union. One user said, "But the Ak is actually a Russian weapon, it should be a R15 maybe", while another said, "Shower with a gun that originated in the USSR lol very American…" A third user commented, "Sir that is a Russian manufactured weapon, the only way to allow this to be completely American is for the AK-47 to be swapped with a AR-15, a 12 pack of Budweiser, Charlie Daniel's greatest hits, and a cousin."

Another follower commented, "Pretty sure that's the last thing you should do." Another user echoed the sentiment saying, "This the last person id trust with a gun ngl". A third user joked, "This might be the most Sean Strickland thing I've yet to see."

Other users were more worried about the MMA fighter's mental health. One user commented, "Poor fella, since he got hammered by peirera he has completely lost it, at the same time he talked way too much before the fight not to feel 💩 now. Feel sorry for the guy." While another called Strickland a "Certified schizophrenic." A third user said, "Sean’s clearly a sociopath"

Due to his divisive views, irrational social media statements, and propensity to knock out sparring partners during practise, Strickland has developed a reputation in the MMA community as a loose cannon. The 31-year-old had also launched into a diatribe against transgender individuals back in May, which led to his Twitter suspension as per Mirror.

On December 17, Strickland will make another appearance in the Octagon when he takes on the tough middleweight Jared Cannonier in Las Vegas. He was on a six-match win streak before his most recent defeat to Pereira during UFC 276 in Las Vegas according to the Daily Mail.
