Video: Diego Sanchez Talks Return to Team Jackson, How Rashad Got Hurt and His Allegiance to Jon Jones

(Video courtesy of YouTube/MMAHeat)

Not sure how we missed this video when it went up last week, but our homegirl Karyn Bryant from MMA H.E.A.T. caught up with Diego Sanchez and talked to the eccentric UFC welterweight about a variety of topics including his upcoming UFC 135 fight with Matt Hughes in September and his return to Team Jackson.

FYI, Sanchez recently turned down our request for another interview because our logo is “the damn devil sign,” but that’s fine since Karyn always seems to ask the questions we want to have answered.

Your loss, Diego, you know what I mean?

A few highlights:

• Diego recently got married.

• Rashad’s injury was an accident that happened when Evans and his sparring partner got too close to Diego and his sparring partner who were drilling double-leg takedowns.

• He’s backing Jon Jones when he fights Rashad because he’s his “brother in Christ” and his teammate.

• He feels that he beat Martin Kampmann handily because of takedowns despite the popular opinion that it should have gone to “Hitman.”

• He says would love to fight Kampmann again because he called him a “B-I-T-C-H” on Twitter, but he’s moved on to bigger fights.

• He says that Greg Jackson rarely accepts money from fighters.

• He is planning at making Hughes gasp for air when they fight.

• He sees this being Hughes’ retirement bout and says he’s expecting a tough fight.

I like to watch Diego fight. Rarely does he not bring it full bore. Outside of his top notch fighting - he, and his religious bullshit make him sound like a douche. I know he is young, and one day he will learn that God does not effect anything other that his own psyche and hype.

You guys need to change your logo to a Mr Potato Head with Rashad Evans mong knockout face. and some wobbly boxing gloves... possibly attach some stanky legs if you want to go all out.

You should change the CP logo to be two thumbs-up in MMA gloves. Then you could get a Yes for an interview with the Yes-man.
