“I was being a pansy,” Strickland said in his post-fight interview. “I should have stayed in the pocket and thrown like I did at the end. Maybe I let the pressure get to me. Again, sorry. I was fighting like a b*tch out there. Sorry. … Lesson learned. Won’t happen again.”

Strickland has won six straight. Hermansson was coming off a win in May.
