The technician Sean Strickland, Eric Nicksick pointed out fear for his pupil's fight against Paulo borrachinha. In an interview with 'The Schmo', the coach showed respect to the Brazilian and revealed a scenario in which the former middleweight champion (up to 83,9kg) could have problems in the confrontation. Athletes face each other in the UFC 302.

“Paulo is a threat when he puts your back against the bars. (…) Therefore, I believe he earned this nickname (The Eraser). He is aggressive and seeks to 'turn off your lights'. It's important not to have your back to him in the octagon. He is very good, very dynamic. (…) When one observes his struggle against Robert whittaker, the kicks come out of nowhere. They are very fast. So, we have to make sure Sean doesn’t take risks,” she concluded.
