And UFC cuts Diego Sanchez a day after withdrawing from his fight with Cowboy. Little surprised at that one. Not that Diego was any sort of threat but Dana seemed to have a ton of love for the ultimate fighter 1 alum. Thought he would have let him go out on his own terms and not cut him unless thats what Sanchez wanted

Sent from my SM-N975W using RealGM mobile app


I’m 99% sure he was cut because of his coach/manager/life coach/knife defense teacher/death touch instructor.

I’m sure Dana and everyone else in the UFC are done dealing with him and also maybe hoping cutting Diego might open his eyes on how crazy that dude is and how Diego needs to get away from him.

Diego’s coach taped convos with ufc lawyers and they posted them.

I guess they wanted them to say something Incriminating but they didn’t really, but Diego and crew acting like it was a smoking gun.

Poor Diego, i hope he finds direction and doesn’t go pennyless.

That coach went after the UFC commentators, DC, Rogan, Karen Bryant...

It is pretty telling that conmen in 2020s do nothing but obsess about how the media is misrepresenting them. Trump, Gaetz, this guy. The go-to move is to claim there is a conspiratorial attack by a cabal of media members.

Joe Rogan's mythologizing of John Danaher is ridiculous. Listening to the Gordon Ryan podcast, Rogan is now saying that Danaher has a PhD from Columbia and taught there? Lies lies lies. The story gets exaggerated every year. He'll be a professor emeritus by 2023.

Also, that Danaher is emotionless, lacks social conformity, and is obsessed with martial arts...is this cool, emulable? It's not like it's a feat of character. He's just autistic. Who cares? **** that boring weirdo.

YouTube "unboxing" "katana", you'll see a hundred Danahers. Tilly hats, swords, and matter-of-fact.

Do you believe Ryan when he says they train 7 days/week, 365 days/year, twice a day? All the androgen in the world, can you do that?

If they're training easy, yeah.

If they're going at it like dogs, there's going to be serious injuries. They can ignore them for a while, but it'll catch up to them and their later years will be gnarly.

Considering their leader has no knees or whatever is going on with his legs, it makes sense. They're in it for the reward right now but will pay heavily down the road. Hopefully they make enough/save enough for orthopedic surgery later down the road.

Diego Sanchez fears UFC will kill him for speaking out against promotion

...“I’m going to tell you guys frankly right now, I’m fearful for my motherf*cking life,” Sanchez said. “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 said the UFC is controlled by a “Wizard of Oz” that controls the media narratives surrounding the promotion and manipulates social media through bots and fake followers on Instagram. In he and Fabia’s case, he claimed, the promotion would only allow negative comments and block positive ones....

Man the UFC definitely has some questionable practices but Diego is certifiably nuts and has been for a very long time.

Its beyond clear that he isn’t in a right spot mentally. This dude needs some drastic help pretty damn quick. Hopefully some family or some older guys from Jackson/Wink can separate this dude from the Fabia guy and get Diego some help.

Sadly this has tragic ending written all over it.

Kayla Harrison continues to finish wmma fighters that I've never heard of. This was one of the better opponents she's faced though, as this one has only lost 40% of her fights.
