Diego Sanchez continues to put distance between himself and his former guru, the universally-panned Joshua Fabia.
Sanchez (30-13) hit up social media on Tuesday night, addressing his split from Fabia. “The Nightmare” offered a measured response when touching on the tumultuous journey he had with Fabia. Sanchez thanked those who supported him and apologized to anyone negatively affected, while also praying for Fabia and Co.

To all of my family, friends, fans and the mma community
Thank you all for your continued love and support through this very challenging time in my life. I appreciate all of the defense that arose for me on behalf of my career, myself and all of those who were involved. Thank you for those that have been sensitive to this situation. I apologize to all of those that were affected negatively. I will refrain from provoking this situation any longer. I refuse to fire back on accusations that in the intent were made to provoke me and those close to me. Once again, my faith has taught me to love thy neighbor and love thy enemy. I wish for peace to surface moving forward. Luke 6:27-36.
I will lift Josh and Rebecca up in prayer. Prayers that god helps them find their peaceful awareness.
Sanchez also revealed that he had regained sole access to his social media; however, he warned his audience that Fabia was controlling Sanchez’s OnlyFans account.
This is Diego I’m back! To my fans I have to be honest I have nothing to do with Diego Sanchez @onlyfans that was all Joshua fabia and Rebbeca Hidalgo his assistant. So please don’t entertain the illusion and I’m sorry if some loyal fans thought they were talking to me in the DM.— Diego Sanchez UFC (@DiegoSanchezUFC) June 2, 2021
UFC President, Dana White, released Sanchez from his contract prior to a scheduled fight vs. Donald Cerrone on May 28, 2021. The promotion paid Sanchez his full purse and sponsorship money. White insisted he was on good terms with Sanchez, but put Fabia on blast.
Late last month, Sanchez confirmed he had parted ways with Fabia.
