Diego Sanchez appears to have opted to take the high road when it comes to dealing with the aftermath of his split from former coach Joshua Fabia.
Not long after being released by the UFC recently, Sanchez had announced he was parting ways with the controversial ‘School Of Awareness’ coach, whose increasingly bizarre and confrontational behavior had appeared to be damaging ‘The Nightmare’s’ reputation.
Soon afterwards, Fabia showed Sanchez his true colors by publicly airing personal issues that Sanchez had allegedly been dealing with, claiming that, “he was broke and lost all his money and strung out on Kratom and alcohol and 30 other substances, that he has sexual abuse issues.”
However, Sanchez has opted not to retaliate to those, and other accusations from Fabia, and has instead made it clear that he just wants to put the whole ordeal behind him and move on.
“To all of my family, friends, fans and the mma community,” Sanchez wrote on Instagram.
“Thank you all for your continued love and support through this very challenging time in my life. I appreciate all of the defense that arose for me on behalf of my career, myself and all of those who were involved. Thank you for those that have been sensitive to this situation. I apologize to all of those that were affected negatively. I will refrain from provoking this situation any longer. I refuse to fire back on accusations that in the intent were made to provoke me and those close to me. Once again, my faith has taught me to love thy neighbor and love thy enemy. I wish for peace to surface moving forward. Luke 6:27-36.
“I will lift Josh and Rebecca [Fabia’s assistant] up in prayer Prayers that god helps them find their peaceful awareness.
Upon parting ways with Fabia, Sanchez had regained his power of attorney from his former mentor, and he’s also now confirmed that he’s back in control of his social media accounts too – revealing that he wasn’t the one dealing with them in recent times.
“This is Diego I’m back!” Sanchez wrote on Twitter. “To my fans I have to be honest I have nothing to do with Diego Sanchez @onlyfans that was all Joshua fabia and Rebbeca Hidalgo his assistant.
“So please don’t entertain the illusion and I’m sorry if some loyal fans thought they were talking to me in the DM.”
