The great Diego Sanchez left Jackson-Wink MMA to train with School of Self Awareness (SoS) founder Josh Fabia, replacing Greg Jackson, Mike Winkeljohn, and Chad Smith in his corner with just Fabia. Prior to his first fight as Sanchez's sole cornerman, Fabia said, "I don't foresee needing to do the in-between-the-rounds thing.” Sanchez lost a decision. Last Saturday Sanchez was losing every round, but eventually was given a DQ victory after a Michel Pereira knee broke two ribs, dropping him, and it was followed up with a knee to the head of a downed opponent.

Reactions to Fabia's coaching ranged from bafflement to disdain, but in a nearly 12 minute Instagram video, Sanchez defended his mentor.

As we all come to think we are experts, as we all have eyes and think we can see, I will now show you what you are not AWARE enough to see. My coach should be getting coach of the year award for reinventing a fighter at the age of 38. What you are seeing is something special. Now I ask you all why you could not see it, or why you could not allow @joshuafabiaknowbody @schoolofselfawareness to be acknowledged in any way for what he has done. He has done this alone, No equipment No team No building. If you see this and respect me at all you all owe him a HUGE apology. And if you are not willing to apologize and want to deny what you see in this video you are too far corrupted and no one can help you. To all the fans that supported even though you couldn’t see, I love you even more. For all of you that have written me off and talked trash, keep watching because you can’t stop me now. School of Self Awareness is a worldwide movement and it is for those who are willing to help themselves. Share if you care, if you don’t we now know you don’t care. I am a legend, don’t let them destroy my legacy. If they can do it to me, they can do it to you. Stand up for yourself because no one else will. Oh @thenotoriousmma any time, any place I would cherish the opportunity to have a legendary fight with two legends. Plus it might be nice having a fair fight for a change. If you thought @portal.ido was anything you really need to meet @joshuafabiaknowbody Nice commentating @dc_mma , Really thank you from the bottom of my heart. You did me so wrong it taught me what is really going on. Thanks for not talking to my coach, manager and cornerman @joshuafabiaknowbody in our pre fight meeting. You already showed me your bias attitude then. @michelpereiraufc @seanshelby @danawhite @espnmma @mmajunkiedotcom @mmaworlddotcom @thenotoriousmma @hbosports @shosports @themmadigest @floydmayweather @stylebender @arielhelwani @mikebohnmma @canelo @dc_mma @joerogan @stephenasmith #ufcriorancho #ufc #mma #truth #fightgame #interesting #realtalk #thetruthhurts #antibullying #help #whyisnoonehelpingothers #facts #openyoureyes #awareness #selfawareness

When I was in my seat at T Mobile.. It was Sanchez vs Joe Lauzon. I really thought Diego was taking shots he wouldn't come back from. That was years ago! He's taken way too many shots for way too long. Time to hang em up imo.

Ive said this before, if your not in it to win a title then you should hang em up. Diego himself admitted he is no longer chasing titles. That he wants to bring awareness to this snake oil salesmen that is in his corner. 

Buddy, there are plenty of safer ways to bring "awareness" to your little cult. Getting your brain scrambled any more then it already is assinine. Wonder what this guys cut is of Diego's winnings? 

I almost feel bad when people fall for this type of BS. Someone close to him should sit him down and have a heart to heart with him about his future. The guy is going to be in a wheel chair unable to talk or communicate and i guarantee you that when it happens, Josh Fabia will be nowhere to be found.

I mean. But who didn’t see this coming? If you had to name one fighter on earth who’d work with this guy, it’d be Sanchez. He’s a different type of fella.

Hearing Diego Sanchez talk, I’m not really worried about him taking further punishment. The threshold was crossed long ago, and any extra brain damage will probably just help keep him unaware of it all. Let’s let the man scramble himself into eternal bliss if it’s worth a paycheck to him

I respect Diego and liked him ever since TUF 1. But dude has taken serious damage over the years and is semi punch drunk.

What pisses me off about this whole deal is that it seems like new guy has gotten in Diego's head and is probably getting a nice % of his purse. He will probably push Diego out there a few times to get paid himself paid. Diego seems like he has drank the coolaid hard on this guy

I just don’t understand how Diego could be mentally bulletproof while simultaneously being completely brainwashed

Who is Joshua Sanchez?

Joshua Sanchez basically runs a yoga/meditation business.  Self healing, power of the heart and mind and so forth and so on.

He literally has no credentials or training listed on his website.  But, he does really cool yoga poses so that's something.

It appears to be Diego's retirement gig.  He's on the website as a S.O.S. instructor.  I'm willing to bet that's why Josh is in Diego's corner.  Nothing more or less.....

This is the UFC, crazy town. If McGregor deserves a title fight, Fabia deserves coach of the year. Both are fucking loony, at least 1 will actually happen.

If it allows me to do cool yoga poses with no shirt while healing my body with the power of the mind, count me in...

Hell yeah!
