The MMA community has been buzzing about the recent controversy surrounding Diego Sanchez and his coach Joshua Fabia. Sanchez was released by UFC after his coach Joshua Fabia took a confusing stance against UFC regarding Diego Shancez’s media health report. Many UFC fighters have come forward to criticize Sanchez’s coach for his gimmick and now the Notorious Conor McGregor gives his verdict on the entire thing.
Conor McGregor opened up on the video of Diego Sanchez and Joshua Fabia making a statement during the fighters’ meeting at Yas Island and said:
“I watched the engagement with the broadcast team with an open minded judgment and an understanding that there was disrespectful comments made against you. You were right to pull this up. But the other guy took over the convo. Made it all about him. This is not his story Diego.”
Diego Sanchez’s coach is also infamous for his bizarre training style. Recently a video surfaced where Sanchez was hanging upside down and Fabia was landing punches on Sanchez’s head. Even Conor McGregor who believes in hardcore training found this method bizarre and risky.
Conor McGregor asks Diego Sanchez to ditch Joshua Fabia
The former lightweight champion gave valuable advice to Diego Sanchez and asked him to get rid of his coach Joshua Fabia. Conor McGregor stated:
“This is just madness. I’ll break this things nose in half. This not the move Diego, my bro. I been with ye the whole way, and still am. But this is not on. It was unfair treatment by commentary and fans on your last performance imo, for sure. But not on this guy, 0-0. Ditch.”
“I’m actually on the side of body hardening work also. Working the body etc. But doing it hanging upside down, and getting dome of the head struck repeatedly, while covering vision is preposterous. Grab this guy by the ears and head butt him at his front door first thing.”
Conor McGregor has always been respectful to UFC veteran, Diego Sanchez. McGregor even suggested fighting Sanchez before he took on Dustin Poirier in the rematch. So it’s needless to say that McGregor is trying to help out Diego Sanchez with his series of tweets.
However, enough damage has been done to Diego Sanchez’s career and legacy in the last few years. And following the UFC release, it is very unlikely that the fans will ever see Sanchez compete in any promotion again.
