Joshua Fabia Reacts To Diego Sanchez’s Departure

Joshua Fabia has broken his silence on Diego Sanchez’s decision to split from him professionally.

Fabia had been Sanchez’s coach much to the dismay of many MMA fans and media members. Fabia had some questionable fight preparation techniques, including chasing fighters with a knife. He was also seen repeatedly throwing strikes at Sanchez’s head while he was hanging upside down in what was seen by many as another bizarre and dangerous fight preparation technique.

Sanchez was released from the UFC due to some medical concerns. Footage was leaked of Fabia getting into an argument with UFC employees. The coach allegedly belittled UFC staffers.

Soon after his exit from the UFC, Sanchez announced that he has split from Fabia. In an interview with Summer Helene, Fabia ripped Sanchez over his decision (via Middle Easy).

“I’m trying to express how I feel about what has happened in my time of two years, of being slandered by the UFC, working for a guy that falsely represented himself as a regular person. As I get to more information as I’m with a lawyer, and the lawyer talks to Diego and asked Diego about his education, and he starts talking about how he was in special education, holy s—t, huge red flags man.

“This is not at all what anyone has perceived and Diego is not anywhere near what anybody knows, man. Diego has been an addict. He hasn’t told anybody for the last five months I was his sponsor, living with him, that I had to live there because he was broke and lost all his money, and he was strung out on kratom and alcohol, and 30 other substances, that he has sexual abuse issues.

“Nah he didn’t say any of that man, and I’ve been holding up all this, and everybody’s coming at me. I’ve got all the proof, I’ll put out all the videos, man. Diego has literally been taking advantage of me for two years, as I have been fighting for him and putting myself on the line for him for zero benefit.”
