Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

11 GIFs of Diego Sanchez Being Diego Sanchez

(Remind me to ask Diego for a small loan during fight week.)

Love him or hate him, Diego Sanchez is an exciting fighter who brings it each and every time he’s in the cage. What is most polarizing about him is that most fans think that he’s a really strange dude. From his stevia experimentation,”Yes!” mantra, cartwheels and his denial that he may have lost a fight to his recent call-out of his teammate Carlos Condit, it’s an understatement to say that the TUF winner marches to the beat of a different drummer, but that’s part of his appeal.

The fighter formerly known as “The Nightmare” (sorry, I’m not calling him “The Dream”) takes on Jake Ellenberger tonight at UFC on FUEL 1, so we figured we’d take a look back at some of his GIF-worthy moments the past few years.

Check out the other 10 below.

^ Yeah me too, to be fair though you can't contain Diego in a GIF.

Hmm. Meant to also say "isn't a good way to get out of DW's doghouse."

CP. Taking money from Spike to advertise their counter UFC programming.

Just sayin'.

Diego is gonna roll this guy and show everyone how overrated he was

@jon fitch and exciting, wiping your eyes in disbelief... " Really Diego.. All for me"? He gets on all fours and crawls up to you and whispers eerily in your ear... "yes"

My favorite is still when he and Joe Riggs hit each other at the same time with huge haymakers and then Diego knocked him out with a flying knee, then fell into the corner of the cage and started bleeding from the nose and looking like he just got fucking rocked....all in like the first 30 seconds of the fight.

^curls yes i have indeed felt that. and it's an instinct that i have learned to trust adamantly.
Diaz is indeed crazier than a shithouse rat.

wtf....this is the captcha = yesaas urrence

diego sanchez is a simpleton. he is one of those guys that trusts his manager with all of his money and never asks where any of it is. he will end up in some type of jims jones cult or giving all of his money to an evangalist.

I don't know why, but I have never liked Diego. It's not like he stole my lunch money or gave me wedgies. You ever get that feeling when you look at somebody the first time and know immediately that you loathe them. Never met them - never talked to them - never seen them before in your life. You just do not like them. That is how I feel about Diego. - -- - - - Ya, I am a little mental. Maybe that's it. I am intimidated by his level of crazy.

@bootystar it wasnt that much of a beatdown was it?? humiliate is a big word! diaz lost but i think he was just out-wrestled, it wasnt like silva-griffin or anything...
frndlylion- February 15, 2012 at 10:56 am
ugh, that should read "devastating loop of SELF destruction"
frndlylion- February 15, 2012 at 10:54 am
Proof that too much positive feedback creates a devastating loop of destruction. This guy is so convinced he is the best he cant be bothered to actually have fighting skills. I hope Ellenburger knocks him out. I would settle for a repeat of the ass whipping BJ gave him though. I really enjoyed that fight.
bootystar- February 15, 2012 at 10:39 am
first guy to totally humiliate Diaz, that I can think of

^ Well you just took the crazy out of my steam engine. For real this guy is a fucking nut.
NaturalBornRunner- February 15, 2012 at 10:26 am
^^^^brilliant!!!! JFaEitss rulez!!!
Jon Fitch and Exciting in the same sentence- February 15, 2012 at 10:16 am
Diego is frickin' bat shit crazy. I'm sure he'd be awesome to go camping with. Dude probably breaks off in the middle of the night to howl at the moon and rape wolverines. You wake up, camp is clean and Diego is smiling at you, with a frying pan in his hand, showing you sunny side up eggs and bacon, asking if you want to go for a motivational jog after breakfast.
