Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Someway, it feels like the Diego Sanchez/Joshua Fabia drama vs. UFC is just receiving started out. Even with Sanchez fully launched from the advertising and cost-free to do as he’d please, “The Nightmare” nevertheless has a bone to pick with the world’s leading MMA promotion. Or possibly it’s only Fabia, who operates as Sanchez’s principal mentor and supervisor, pushing the conflict.
Both way, Sanchez took to Instagram to leak a cellular phone call with UFC’s Chief Authorized Officer, Hunter Campbell. “. “Smoking Gun discussion with UFC Law firm,” Sanchez wrote in the caption. “Listen to it for yourself… None of this is standard fans, pals, family members, fighters and casuals ”
To summarize the seven-minute video, Campbell expressed problem in excess of Fabia’s request for Sanchez’s comprehensive health care record with the marketing, as it made him issue no matter if or not Sanchez was healthy and suit to compete.
“The direct quotation I gained was, you mentioned that the quotation ‘long-phrase consequences of Diego remaining an MMA fighter’ ended up your basis for requesting it,” Campbell claimed (by using MMAJunkie) “So I went as a result of this with (previous UFC fighter) Mark Hunt, and here’s the reality: If you are involved or (Sanchez is) worried that he’s getting damaging consequences, then we’re not heading to battle him and I’m going to pull the fight ideal now and we’re likely to simply call it a working day and we’ll launch him and he can go do anything else with his daily life, due to the fact I’m not putting any individual in that cage that doesn’t come to feel 100 % or thinks they’re struggling from any health-related issues.”
Fabia argued that he was just interested in aiding Sanchez recuperate from a career’s value of accidents and hoped to entry the similar scans and imaging. Campbell requested Sanchez crystal clear a bodily, which he did, but by that issue, it was too late. Sanchez was questioned to give a penned assertion about his health, but when it proved inadequate, the bout vs. Donald Cerrone was officially canceled.
Properly, here’s a silver lining to the Sanchez drama (he probably wasn’t going to get that gain bonus).
I just experienced an hour-lengthy discussion with @DiegoSanchezUFC and Joshua Fabio. I will have their facet of the story on Diego’s release from the UFC shortly. Diego did say he was paid out his comprehensive wage: $155k to exhibit, $35k get bonus & $21k athlete outfitting reward

Slips, rips, and KO clips
“The Purple King” returned in dominant vogue very last night. Does he just take the PFL million?
Rosas did a great job right here of spinning beneath his opponent, and I think Duran verbally tapped? It is challenging to tell.
Blocking kicks properly is basically rather hard, but the success can be extraordinary for either side.
Okay, so this fish has an whole residing eel in its stomach. What now?
