TUF 1 alum and 14-year UFC veteran Diego Sanchez notched another win at UFC 235 via second round TKO over welterweight prospect Mickey Gall, which also earned him an extra $50,000 for Performance of the Night. But according to “Nightmare” he was actually on the receiving end of some dirty tactics in the heat of the action.

The 37-year-old Sanchez took out his frustrations through an Instagram post, where he showed a photo of what looks like a bite mark on his right chest. He also claimed being eye gouged during the fight, which had seemingly gone under the referee’s radar.

@mickeygall is still a little bitch he bit me and eye gouged me! I’m from the streets of burque your lucky that ref pulled me off ! OG’s don’t tell the ref they suck it up and street fight! But I had to let ig know

Now on a two-fight win streak, Sanchez improves to a record of 29-11, with 16 wins by stoppage.
