Diego Sanchez Loses Special Fight Outside The UFC | Results

Ultimate Fighter and UFC legend Diego “The Nightmare” Sanchez was recently granted permission by UFC president Dana White to compete outside the UFC in a special exhibition fight against his very good friend and teammate Isaac “The Shermanator” Marquez. The scrap took place on Friday, in New Mexico, and Diego Sanchez lost, via submission (armbar).

Marquez is a very special case though, having been born with down syndrome, the Team Jackson trained fighter’s dream was to have a real fight in the cage. Diego Sanchez granted the man’s wish, and took an L in the process.

We do not have video of the scrap, just a recount from the official Team Jackson social media account which said,

Diego “The Nightmare” Sanchez is now on a two fight losing streak. The fighter suffered the first devastating knockout loss of his career at the hands of Al Iaquinta at UFC Fight Night 108. The fighter would go on to face Matt Brown at UFC Fight Night 120. However, Sanchez suffered yet another brutal knockout loss inside the octagon. “The Nightmare’s” most recent victory was back in 2016 against Marcin Held. Sanchez won the contest by unanimous decision. Now the fighter is 27-11 in his storied mixed martial arts career. That in mind, it would appear that the MMA warrior will be helping a fan achieve a life long dream in the near future.
