Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone is determined to hurt Diego Sanchez when he specifically requested to fight against Sanchez in the ring. However, Sanchez was pulled out by Joshua Fabia due to Sanchez’s long-term health concern. The disagreement between players heated when Sanchez was released from the promotion, which led the UFC President Dana White to blame Fabia.
Cerrone is known for not turning down any fight, so he ended a short-notice fight against Alex Morono for UFC Vegas 26. Of course, Cerron has personal comments regarding Sanchez’s release. He said that he felt bad regarding Sanchez’s relationship with Fabia, as Fabia is an influential cult leader of “The School of Self-Awareness”.
Their former teammate, Rashad Evans, also responded on Instagram in one of Sanchez’s posts, telling him to get rid of Fabia out of his life and calling Fabia a “parasite”. Despite the cancellation of their fights, still, Cerrone doesn’t have any ill-feeling towards Sanchez.
Donald Cerrone also added that it’s difficult to stay mad at Diego because he is only under the influence of his cult leader and lover, who did nothing but to take over his life. Although Cerrone doesn’t have any personal encounters with Fabia, he was well-aware of what happened at a bar in New Mexico.
Fabia reciprocated in a statement that Cowboy is a lying bigot, and he has been brainwashed by UFC and he is homophobic.
As of now, Cerron focuses on his upcoming fight with Morono, especially he’ll be making a big adjustment on his weight after he committed himself to the lightweight division.
