If you’re not an actual fighter and want to spar, Sean Strickland is the last person you should try your hand against. PowerSlap’s Coltin Cole recently found this out the hard way.

To Cole’s credit, he admitted to having some amateur fighting experience when asked by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight champion, Strickland, on a recent episode of PowerSlap: Road to the Title. Unfortunately for Cole, Strickland didn’t go easy on the slapper, as he historically hasn’t in sparring … with anyone.

The video can be seen in the embedded player above.

The clash was just another day for Strickland, but for Cole, he noted shortly after the session that he started to notice a painful lump develop over his ribs. There’s no confirmation yet whether or not Cole’s rib was broken. He visibly struggled to move and was in pain sneezing, however.

As for Strickland, he’ll make his first career title defense against Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 297 this weekend (Sat., Jan. 20, 2024). If Du Plessis wins, he’ll become the first UFC champion to hail from South Africa, extending his current winning streak to nine (20-2).
