Chris Leben Thinks Diego Sanchez Has Had Too Much Greg Jackson | UFC NEWS

Diego Sanchez made his return to lightweight last weekend with a disappointing performance and split decision win over Takanori Gomi. In the fight, he was certainly not the Diego we’ve all come to enjoy watching. After winning three consecutive Fight Of The Night honors, Diego’s ultra-aggressive style seemed to be missing.

UFC middleweight veteran Chris Leben took to Twitter to blame Diego’s performance on his training with Greg Jackson. He tweeted to Diego: “what happened? You used to move straight forward and crush guys. Too much Greg Jackson i think”. Clearly, Leben believes that training with Greg Jackson has had a negative effect on the fighting abilities of Diego Sanchez.

However, this is not Diego’s first fight as a member of Jackson’s camp. In fact, Jackson cornered him for his previous three FOTN efforts. Therefore, it doesn’t make much sense that Chris Leben would criticize Jackson’s training methods.

What do you think BJ Penn fans? Do you agree that Jackson is to blame?
