Diego Sanchez levied intense allegations against the UFC following his release.
UFC President Dana White and Sanchez parted ways prior to Sanchez's planned fight vs. Donald Cerrone at UFC Vegas 26. White revealed Sanchez was paid his ful purse and Venum sponsorship deal, and lambasted Sanchez's controversial guru-figure Joshua Fabia.
Sanchez took aim at the UFC while speaking with SiriusXM Fight Nation's R.J. Clifford and Anthony Smith on "MMA Today". Sanchez accused a "Wizard of Oz" like force in the UFC of controlliong the media narrative, negatively in the case of Sanchez and Fabia. He spoke for more than 40 minutes interrupted until the hosts were forced to wrap the segment.
“I’m going to tell you guys frankly right now, I’m fearful for my motherf--king 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 s**t.’ I don’t know. But I would not put anything past the level of evil that is within this corporation.”
“If I was to expose some of the stuff that I know about, because I’ve been in this motherf--ker longer than than anybody else, and been the only one that survived the b--ch, that went through the dark tunnel and came out the other side.”
