“The Nightmare” Diego Sanchez is one of the most exciting characters in the MMA community. Sanchez was released from the UFC after a series of altercations between the UFC and his former manager Joshua Fabia.

Now Sanchez has parted ways with Joshua Fabia and he is currently eyeing a debut in the BKFC. Sanchez recently revealed that he got affected with the Coronavirus, and his situation is getting really worse. He also called out Colby Covington for calling it a common cold.

He wrote, “Shi**ing, coughing, pukin, constant hot cold fevers, pain in every joint, migraines, 5 days no sleep and constantly short of breath. My boy @luisbaboon warned me I had no idea it was this evil!!! @ColbyCovMMA was talkin that sh*t saying it’s just a common cold. Salute for all the sick.”

Covington was asked to comment on Khamzat Chimaev, he said Khamzat doesn’t deserve anything, and he almost retired because of a common cold (Coronavirus). This statement didn’t sit well with many people, and they called out Colby for the same. Here’s the exact statement, he gave, “You know Chimaev, he’s got to do a lot more work than get three fights in the UFC. You guys hype these guys up real quick but let’s not forget he was put down by the common cold.”

He added, “He was ready to retire off the common cold. That’s a 99.9 percent survival rate to beat the common cold and Chimaev was ready to give it up and retire. He doesn’t want to fight me. He’s got a way less chance than 99.9 percent chance against me.”
