Diego Sanchez claims a slimy MMA journalist gave longtime rival Nick Diaz his personalized Electronic mail and in spite of interviewing them equally back again in the early days of UFC (in this article and right here) — and being slimy — I can guarantee you it was not me.
“Nick Diaz applied to mail me e-mail,” Sanchez explained to fellow TUF 1 graduate Mike Swick (by means of MMA Combating). “He found my electronic mail, he talked to 1 of the MMA journalists at the time, there was not a lot of. Gave him my e mail and he would e-mail me dislike mails.”
Sanchez defeated Diaz in a welterweight key function atop the TUF 2 Finale in late 2005, with “The Nightmare” capturing a unanimous selection victory. I’m certain that decline only designed factors worse, at the very least for the temperament of Diaz, who soon went right after Mama Sanchez.
“Talking shit about my mother, speaking shit about my father, just making an attempt to get underneath my skin with anything he experienced,” Sanchez ongoing. “He hated me. He hated Greatest Fighters simply because we bought all that interest. He was in the highlight at that time, he hated us and he hated me.”
So did his “crybaby” brother.
A rematch appeared inescapable but soon after a sizzling-and-chilly operate in the many years that adopted — which bundled his clinic brawl with Joe Riggs — Diaz parted means with UFC to consider his luck in equally EliteXC and Strikeforce, in which he ultimately captured the welterweight title.
Sanchez (30-12) returns to the Octagon to battle Jake Matthews as section of upcoming month’s UFC 253 party. The lacking-in-action Diaz (26-9, 2 NC), meanwhile, has not competed given that dropping to Anderson Silva back again in 2015.
