Sean Strickland ‘one of the best teammates’ coach says
“He’s one of the best teammates you’re going to have in the room,” Nicksick said.
“He’s a guy that, he pushes each individual in here and it doesn’t matter the weight class. He’ll come in for early sparring when the 145’ers will come in a little bit earlier to get work – Sean’s here early and helping coach these guys, help cornering these guys.
“He has a delivery to him … that old-school weight training coach that’s yelling at you and screaming at you. I like that mentality. A lot of people might push away from that mentality. So I just had a conversation with him recently. He had a good point about one of our fighters, but it was the delivery that he was saying it in.
“He’s not like this wild man with his hair on fire every day when he comes in here, but he does have this edge to him, and I think that edge reminds me of the Xtreme Couture of the past. Maybe that’s why I really find him endearing, and I think a lot of the guys that have been here for a long time do, as well.”
