Cowboy Cerrone has an interesting take on Diego Sanchez’s ‘cult leader and lover’ Josh Fabia.
Everyone in the MMA community has an opinion about former UFC fighter, Diego Sanchez and his coach Josh Fabia following the rather dramatic series of interactions that ultimately led to the removal of Sanchez from the UFC roster. Most think he’s being manipulated by a con man but would-be opponent, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone has a bit of a different take on the whole thing.
“It’s hard to be mad at him now because I don’t know if it’s him guiding the horse,” Cerrone said during the UFC Vegas 26 MEDIA DAY. I think he’s just running blind in this other Jumoke, his new lover is like showing him down the path. so I don’t know, can’t really be mad at the kid you know? Or the old man I should say but really, it’s his cult leader and lover that took over his life and I feel bad for you. Diego.”

Later, Cerrone doubled down when asked what he thought about Sanchez’s claims that Fabia tapped him in 40 seconds the first time they rolled together.
“I think your idea of tapped and my idea tapped are different,” he laughed “I think Diego got tapped in 40 seconds for sure. Different kinds of stroke for different kinds of folks, buddy.”
Cerrone was meant to fight Sanchez on Saturday but was pulled from the card just a few days ago. Alex Morono will step in to face Cerrone as the UFC Vegas 26 co-main event.
