Donald Cerrone has an interesting story to share about Diego Sanchez's controversial mentor, Joshua Fabia.
Cerrone alleges that Fabia threatened to execute the infamous death punch and was promptly beat up by Cerrone's friend. The alleged incident took place around the Albuquerque, New Mexico area.
“I never have met him,” Cerrone said at media day (via TheMacLife). “I never ever have, I know the guy that whipped his ass at the bar, I used to train with the guy. That kid was talking about his death punch and how he was going to kill the dude, and my buddy whipped his little motherfucking ass all over the bar."
“So the death punch did not work. It was unsuccessful,” Cerrone continued. “This guy no longer fights, no longer trains. He just said, ‘I’ll beat your ass.’ Then he did. The MMA community in New Mexico had a chuckle over that.”
