No Fight Camp Or Opponent Has ‘Dominated’ UFC Veteran Diego Sanchez Like Covid-19
UFC legend and former TUF 1 winner Diego Sanchez has been hospitalized as he battles both Covid-19 and pneumonia at the same time.
The “Nightmare” took to social media this past week and tried to spread awareness about the seriousness of Covid-19 after going through rough symptoms. He also labeled this as the “biggest fight of a fighter’s life.”
“This has been the fight of a fighter’s life no fight camp or opponent has dominated me like this,” Sanchez wrote. “It’s been a long fight, last night I think I finally win a round with the help of my corner God, Jesus, Holy Spirit & the many candles prayers lit in the hearts of my loved ones. Faith.”

Sanchez also shared on Twitter that he has developed blood clots in both of his legs and is having severe insomnia along with constant shortness of breath.
Still Sanchez is hopeful that he will soon be able to overcome this trial as well as he had done all his life.
Sanchez hasn’t been in action since September 2020 where he lost the bout to Jake Matthews via unanimous decision. This also proved to be the last fight of his UFC career as he was unceremoniously released in 2021.
The emerging promotion, BKFC saw the opportunity and was quick to pounce on it.
Following his release, they immediately courted in Sanchez to their roster, but nothing has been made official yet.
