Diego Sanchez has revealed details of his professional and personal relationship with Joshua Fabia. Sanchez said that he’s having to disown some family members because they want him to cut ties Fabia.
Sanchez has claimed that an agenda is being pushed by the UFC to bring his and Fabia’s reputation down. This has led some of his family members wanting him to part ways with Fabia.
Recently, Sanchez opened up about his relationship with his coach Fabia.
“This poor guy had his reputation shi** on by the media…This guy is (accused of being) a con artist, manipulator, when really, the truth of the story is this is just the only guy that came around. There was no one else to help me, man,” he said.
“Not only protect me, (but) teach me how to heal myself, teach me how to get standing straight up again. It’s everything.”
He also stated that he has disowned some family members because of their sceptical perception towards Fabia.
He said, ”And being open and honest, I think that’s one big factor about me and Joshua; and also loyalty. I’ve been loyal in not giving up on this guy. Not believing the bullsh** of the internet.
“Even to the point where I’m having to; I’m having family members that; I’m having to disown some family members because it’s that hard. The agenda is so hard, so pushed, so hard. I’ve got my own family members telling me that they know better than me for my life.
“They’re telling me, ‘Get that guy. He’s conning you. He’s gonna f**k your whole life up. Get him out of your life.’ And these people are like, ‘This is happening. This is real.’’
After his release from UFC, Sanchez has enrolled in the Professional Athletes Brain Health Study. Apart from this, he will also be visiting schools to talk to kids about the competitive nature of the sport.
