Diego Sanchez saw a UFO last night — ‘It was watching me’

It then scurried back to Kepler-1649c after failing to find any signs of intelligent life.

UFC welterweight veteran Diego Sanchez was back on Twitter last night and for those of you who don’t follow “The Nightmare” on social media, I can promise you’re missing out. Look no further than yesterday’s UFO sighting, which apparently is a regular occurrence in his neck of the woods.

“I was doing energy work on my patio as a UFO flew right up on me,” Sanchez wrote on Twitter. “I called for my daughter, ‘quick quick’ she watched this thing hover only hundreds of feet away. Albuquerque is a trip, sightings are regular here. But this shit was contact tonight, it was obvious it was watching me.”

I think I’m more interested in his “energy work” than his UFO sighting because I don’t know what that means. Was he doing some kind of mystical yoga workout? Building solar panels? Training himself for the electric chair a la Horace Pinker? Sanchez could be the only UFC fighter more compelling than flying saucers.

“Today a powerful portal of light energy is open,” Sanchez continued. “If there ever was a night to connect with the universe tonight is the night. I have been celebrating and connecting all day.”

Don’t tell Nick Diaz!

Sanchez isn’t the only fighter to pull the UFO card. Retired UFC champ Georges St-Pierre insists he was abducted by aliens in New Mexico (seriously) and even newly-anointed City Councilman Tito Ortiz has witnessed strange aerial phenomenon.

“I’m that guy,” Sanchez insists. “And my magic is real.”
