Diego Sanchez went on a bizarre Twitter-spree recently, where the admittedly “buzzed” fighter weirdly called for “legends” bouts with numerous contenders and fellow veterans. While he also mentioned Conor McGregor and “Cowboy salami,” two other fighter he called out have since responded.
Demian Maia said he’s willing to face Sanchez.
Let’s do it !? @ufc https://t.co/U0eoFZP22K— Demian Maia (@demianmaia) November 6, 2020
Dan Hardy on the other hand, says Sanchez needs some “serious psychological evaluation” and took shots at his controversial coach after that strange call out. This is their exchange:
If @danhardymma wants his Combat death to be by me come on Dan just ask I’ll give you the warriors death you desire— Diego Sanchez UFC (@DiegoSanchezUFC) November 5, 2020
Dan if you really want it come get it my reptile eats your weak ass serpent— Diego Sanchez UFC (@DiegoSanchezUFC) November 5, 2020
You’re a funny guy, @DiegoSanchezUFC... I can’t help but feel bad laughing at you though, when it’s clear that you need a serious psychological evaluation. Was calling me out your own idea, or did you get help from that mystical yoga teacher guy that you keep in your pocket?— Dan Hardy (@danhardymma) November 5, 2020
Apart from the call outs, Sanchez also sent several strange tweets in that short stretch, going from Lions to “Bill Cosby Jones” and “bots hired to kill my identity.” Here’s a few of those tweets:
“Wasss up family”
“My peeps follow my mission”
“F—k all you haters”
“I’m a lion roaring”
“I’m the real burque”
“Bill Cosby Jones gonna sue mee”
“For speaking truth”
“I’ll be living out my truck Jon bones Jones text me my truck is real I love my 05 avalanche”
“I love you all even you bots hired to kill my identity”
Sanchez, 38, lost a one-sided decision to Jake Matthews in his latest outing last September. Apart from Hardy, numerous other experts have also questioned his choice of coaching and mentorship, as the TUF 1 winner hasn’t exactly fought like himself in his last few outings.
