After getting pummeled by Sean Strickland last week, Sneako spent some time sparring with ex-UFC superstar Nate Diaz.

The controversial Rumble streamer found himself the subject of many a headline on Friday after footage emerged of him being bloodied and battered by the former UFC middleweight champion during an early morning gym session. In the clip which you can see right here Strickland delivers an onslaught of strikes long after Sneako’s corner throws in the towel.

UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin had to physically step in and stop Strickland from continuing the assault.

“When you spar these guys that want to spar, there is no respect,” Strickland said on his YouTube channel. “You haven’t earned it. You haven’t like proved yourself. You don’t deserve not to get hurt. If Forrest hadn’t jumped in, I would’ve took your life if I could’ve.”

Days later, Sneako decided to test his skills against another combat sports star Nate Diaz.

Nate Diaz gives a glowing review of Sneako

After their session was said and done, Diaz had nothing, but positive things to say about Sneako’s skills. However, we have a sneaking suspicion that the lightweight superstar was just trying to be nice.
