Longtime UFC welterweight Diego Sanchez is looking for a “legends fight” as he winds down the twilight of his career. And instead of texting UFC matchmakers Mick Maynard and Sean Shelby with his ideas, “The Nightmare” instead got buzzed and logged into Twitter.
What could possibly go wrong?
“If Dan Hardy wants his combat death to be by me come on Dan, just ask I’ll give you the warrior’s death you desire,” Sanchez wrote. “Dan if you really want it come get it my reptile eats your weak-ass serpent.”
Sanchez also called out Conor McGregor, Demian Maia, and “Cowboy Salami.”
“You’re a funny guy Diego, I can’t help but feel bad laughing at you though, when it’s clear that you need a serious psychological evaluation,” Hardy replied on Twitter. “Was calling me out your own idea, or did you get help from that mystical yoga teacher guy that you keep in your pocket?”
The 38 year-old Sanchez has been competing for UFC since the original “Ultimate Fighter” back in early 2005. “The Nightmare” was last seen losing a unanimous decision to Jake Matthews at UFC 253 in September.
“Fuck all you haters, I’m a lion roaring,” Sanchez continued. “I would prefer a legends fight but if I gotta fight another 26 year old, bring it. I’m the real ‘burque, Bill Cosby Jones gonna sue me for speaking truth. I’ll be living out my truck, Jon ‘Bones’ Jones text me, my truck is real, I love my ‘05 Avalanche.”
Hopefully he doesn’t park it in the driveway.
