Diego Sanchez Fought At UFC 253 With "Torn Labrum In My Left Hip”

Diego Sanchez competed on the preliminary card of UFC 253, suffering a unanimous decision loss to Jake Matthews.

Unfortunately, a defeated Sanchez didn’t enter UFC 253 unscathed, as he fought Matthews while dealing with a torn labrum in his left hip. Sanchez revealed the news through Instagram:


Warriors don’t always win they do however always survive! I took a fight on the other side of the world on a months notice, fought my fourth primed 26 year old out of the last five opponents. With a torn labrum in my left hip! I positively pressed the fight with a streaking 5-1 welterweight prospect. Had a face to face with @danawhite with not one negative word only respect and love. I might have some haters but that’s only a accurate identification of successfulness. Made it my 36 trip to the octagon. Today I will get treatment on my torn labrum @utahstemcells @jon_anik was incorrect during fight commentary as he credited stem cell for helping me in between fights. This is my first partnership with a stem cell facility and am very excited to see how this treatment can help extend my longevity. #thestoriesofstoriescontinues
