According to an MMA legend’s coach, UFC president Dana White has been having intimate relations with fighters signed to the promotion.
In one of the biggest stories of the month in the MMA world, The Ultimate Fighter season one middleweight winner Diego Sanchez was released by the UFC days before his scheduled fight with Donald Cerrone at UFC Vegas 26 this Saturday.
According to Yahoo Sport’s Kevin Iole, Sanchez was cut from the promotion after his team, including his coach and mentor Joshua Fabia, would not “confirm to the UFC that Sanchez was not suffering from either short-term or long-term medical issues.”
In Iole’s interview with White after Sanchez’s release, White said he had an “incredible, amazing relationship with Diego.” However, the UFC president blasted Fabia, calling him a “creep” and saying that he’s been “controlling” Sanchez’s life.
Fabia has taken a lot of flack from the MMA community, with individuals taking issue with his coaching abilities and approach to Sanchez’s fighting career. Watch a video of Fabia chasing fighters around a cage with a knife:

According to Iole, Fabia told the Nevada State Athletic Commission that he had taught Sanchez a choke that he could use to paralyze or kill his opponent. As per the report, Fabia made the comment before “Nightmare’s” fight with Michael Chiesa in July 2019. He lost the bout via unanimous decision.
Speaking with John Gibson this week, Fabia hit back at White. He made the wild accusation about White, as well as UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby, saying via LowKickMMA.com, “Why isn’t nobody talking about, that the reckoning happened, and that Dana White gets to f*** fighters? How many female fighters has he had sex with? How many female fighters has Sean Shelby had sex with? This is the truth, man.“
