Diego Sanchez confirms next UFC fight will be his last: ‘It’s time to heal not hurt’

After more than 15 years on the UFC roster, Diego Sanchez plans to hang up his gloves after this next fight.

Sanchez (30-13 MMA, 19-13 UFC), who won Season 1 of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series in 2005, announced on Sunday that he’s prepared to put the professional MMA chapter of his life in the rear-view mirror after one more trip to the octagon.

In recent years, Sanchez has gone through a personal evolution. Guided by his mentor Joshua Fabia, who runs the School of Self Awareness, Sanchez has come to the conclusion that competitive fighting is no longer part of his journey, and he intends to move after a final swan song

Sanchez has said on other social media posts that he plans for his farewell contest to take place in April or May. It appears he’s willing to take on anyone in that bout.

“The Nightmare” made his official UFC debut in April 2005, beating Kenny Florian to become the inaugural “TUF” winner. It’s been a rollercoaster of a journey since, as he unsuccessfully challenged for UFC gold in 2009 but has picked up notable wins against the likes of Nick Diaz, Karo Parisyan, Martin Kampmann, Jim Miller, Mickey Gall and more in a remarkable career.

Sadly the damage has been done in terms of cte at this point I think. Certainly a legendary fighter in his prime.

I wonder if they would fight each other. I imagine that fight would have happened already if this were the case. They were training partners for years.

Didn’t Diego recently talk shit about how Cowboy stopped working with other Jackson-Wink guys and only cared about himself? Might be something there

I used to walk by a homeless crackhead with turrets and hed yell about fucking my mother and how demons were in her pussy.
Pretty sure cowboy looked at Diegos trash talking in a similar light I did that man, just kinda wished he had someone to save him from himself.

That guy does not have turrets. I know who he is too. Me and my buddy PhillySeymour shagged his mom back in his high school and he never recovered.
