Diego Sanchez defends JacksonWink after Donald Cerrone’s comments

Diego Sanchez

Earlier today, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone revealed all about how he feels things have gone south in regard to his longtime…former…home base.

As one might expect, this wasn’t going to sit well with some people. Those who still are with JacksonWink MMA in particular.

Being a longtime staple when it comes to the gyms homegrown fighters, Cerrone has been there for practically his whole career. Another one of those fighters is none other than The Ultimate Fighter season 1 winner Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez.

When Sanchez caught wind of Cerrone’s comments and slandering of his head coach and wrestling coach, Chad Smith, he wasn’t going to let it slide.

@joerogan @jacksonwink_mma is on fire we’re on the ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️ up’s bro no lie I have been here longer than anyone and seen the many stages of our evolution of this team!!! We’re stronger than ever our defeats only helped us to grow and we are coming into the prosperous stage just 👀 and see!!! @cowboycerrone had been so busy building his empire the past three four years and he’s done a fantastic job doing it but that’s been his focus he’s never been here!!! Maybe a grappling class here or there a sparring every 6 months??? That’s not a team mate it’s just someone who is out only for themselves. I’d try to give him a round if we crossed paths here or there the last time he got me real good with a side kick to the liver 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼…. I see it all!! I treat this like a job 9-5 I come everyday I stay when everyone leaves to rest and eat.. so I see it all!! and in the past ten years cowboy never went out of his way to help me get ready for a fight not ounce! That’s why I posted previous about why I was #teamplatinum @platinummikeperry is here to give me rounds if I need them and helped me more in one camp than cowboy did in ten years🤔… don’t bad mouth my gym or my coach @mmacoachwink we’re good peeps striving to better our city our state and our sport!!!! If Perry falls out come November ILL BE READY TO FILL IN WITH ZERO HESITATION! And we know where @gregjacksonmma will be

Sanchez will be returning to action next Saturday at UFC 228 as he’ll take on Craig White in a welterweight bout. Sanchez will look to snap a two-fight losing streak that consists of knockout losses to Al Iaquinta and Matt Brown.

As for Cerrone, he’ll be taking on Mike Perry at UFC Denver on November 10.
