Diego Sanchez has been in a dispute with the UFC. He was recently cut from the UFC after he withdrew from his farewell fight against Donald Cerrone. There were some disagreements between Sanchez’s team and the UFC over medical supplies.
Sadly, both parties have not been able to reach a middle ground. Recently, Sanchez opened up about his release from UFC stating that,
“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,” he said.
“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.”
Sanchez bashed UFC President for refusing to meet him despite several attempts from Sanchez’s side.
“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?”
He further added, “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?”
The fact that Sanchez is actually concerned about his life is quite alarming. It would only be fitting for him to get a chance to meet with Dana White.
