Diego Sanchez was recently fired by the UFC along with a number of other talent under with the company. Sanchez, however, is not at all holding punches against Dana White and UFC as seen in a recent interview with Anthony Smith & RJ Clifford on MMA Today.
Sanchez got emotional during the interview and said that the UFC has been conspiring against him. He said that he is afraid that the promotion would literally end his life in the next two years if he spoke out against them.
I’m going to tell you guys frankly right now, I’m fearful for my motherf*cking life. I’m fearful that this company, this billion-dollar company monopoly, worldwide, is going to come after me. Something might happen to me in two years. Maybe in a couple years. Maybe I wreck my truck. Maybe I, ‘Oh, Diego overdosed, some suicide sh*t.’ I don’t know. But I would not put anything past the level of evil that is within this corporation.
Sanchez went on to rant about multiple topics, including his time in the company and the controversies surrounding his coach Josh Fabia. He then went on to call out Dana White and asked him why he wouldn’t talk to him and if he’s afraid that something unpleasant would be brought up in that conversation.
All you people don’t get it. And I’m going to say this. Dana, what’s up Dana? I tried for two years to get a meeting with you. Oh, sh*t, I was the first Ultimate Fighter. Didn’t that show do something for the company when it was $60 million in debt. And you can’t meet with your boy? I’ve put 60, 70 hours in the UFC PI just to try to get a meeting with you Dana, but you won’t meet with me, because you won’t hear what I have to say? You don’t want to talk with my batsh*t crazy manager? Why, because he might bring some awareness to what you’re hiding in the dark?
Sanchez said that he’s still open to having a conversation with White and asked the UFC head honcho to be “a f**king man”. He said that he’s bled and sacrificed a lot for the UFC but White doesn’t even have 40 minutes for him.
I’m still open to meet with you Dana. Be a f*cking man. Be a real f*cking boss, when I’ve bled, I’ve sweat, I’ve f*cking cried for this f*cking company. I’ve sacrificed more than you will ever know, and you can’t have 45 minutes?
