Sanchez recently went on a Twitter rant, where he promised to give Hardy a “warriors death” (via MMA Fighting):
If @danhardymma wants his Combat death to be by me come on Dan just ask I’ll give you the warriors death you desire
Dan if you really want it come get it my reptile eats your weak ass serpent
Hardy would respond on Twitter, while also mocking Sanchez’s coach in Joshua Fabia:
You’re a funny guy, @DiegoSanchezUFC... I can’t help but feel bad laughing at you though, when it’s clear that you need a serious psychological evaluation. Was calling me out your own idea, or did you get help from that mystical yoga teacher guy that you keep in your pocket?
While Hardy and Sanchez’s interactions would stop there, Sanchez would stay on Twitter and take aim at a good portion of the UFC roster.
