Diego Sanchez Fears For His Life After Speaking Out Against The UFC

Diego Sanchez appears to be deeply entrenched in conspiracy theories as he comes to terms with the fact that he’s been released from the UFC, to the extent that he now fears his life may be in danger.

Sanchez recently leaked video clips and audio calls he and his controversial coach Joshua Fabia took of interactions he’d had with UFC staff that they believe paint a damning picture of the way he’s been treated by the promotion.

Despite many have suggested that the leaks have actually done more harm than good for the veteran star, he seems convinced that the UFC could be looking to silence him in the most sinister way possible.

“I’m going to tell you guys frankly right now, I’m fearful for my motherf*cking life,” Sanchez told RJ Clifford and Anthony Smith on their Sirius XM radio show. “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 claim that the UFC was controlled by a metaphorical ‘Wizard Of Oz’ who is able to steer the media’s narrative on matters relating to the company and also manipulates social media through bots and fake followers, before suggesting that as a result only negative comments are allowed on his pages.

“If I was to expose some of the stuff that I know about, because I’ve been in this motherf*cker longer than than anybody else, and been the only one that survived the b*tch, that went through the dark tunnel and came out the other side,” the 39-year-old said.
