Diego Sanchez is once again in the headlines following his recent release from the UFC. Following the release of some bizarre training footage, Sanchez and Fabia had their say.
In an episode of True Story, Sanchez and Fabia address all the rumors about them. Specifically, they speak on Donald Cerrone and his comments about Diego and Joshua’s sexuality. Naturally, the fighter-trainer duo took great offense to the comments.
“First of all, let me clarify this: Me and Joshua are not sexual, we are not homosexuals, we are brothers”. Moreover, Diego and Joshua insist that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality either. “I’m not about that, Diego is not about that”, adds Fabia.
“Cowboy has had problems with this in the past. It’s been noted two times he’s made gay comments”, says Sanchez. Interestingly, Sanchez feels that Donald is actually not saying these things. Rather it is the UFC that is instigating the situation following the cancellation of the Sanchez-Cerrone fight.
Additionally, Sanchez and Fabia have received a lot of heat from other fighters and fans regarding the video. Dana White, Conor McGregor, and many others have all tried to appeal to Diego to ditch Fabia. By and large, the entire MMA Community feels that Fabia is controlling Sanchez and behaves like a “cult leader” at times.
Why was Diego Sanchez Released from The UFC?
Previously, Diego Sanchez saw his contract terminated despite winning three of his last five fights. However, his last appearance was a decision loss to Jake Matthews last September at UFC 253.
Even though everyone feels that his coach, Fabia, is accountable, Sanchez’s decision to leave was reportedly his own. Sanchez, 39, feels that the fighting is taking a toll on his health. Considering the recent circumstances, ‘Nightmare’ Sanchez’s decisions seem influenced by an outside opinion.
