Videos: Did Diego Sanchez Get His Own Theme Song?

There are so many things wrong with this music video — “Nightmare,” by Illfluent (get it, like affluent, only ill’er?) — that all you can do is hope it’s a bad joke.  It’s just guys who look like the poor man’s Kevin Federline rapping about their vague fighting prowess while on the other half of a split screen we see the same footage of Diego Sanchez over and over again.  

It also includes classic lines like: “All glory to God when I go in to war/Even if I lose the battle I’ll be back for more,” and “I’m the best of the best/You don’t mess with the king/You want your face cut open with championship rings?”

Championship rings?  Either these guys did absolutely no research before writing this rhyme (and for the last time, you gotta research your raps, people), or they’re referring to Fedor’s WAMMA ring, which means they did entirely too much research.  Either way, it’s official.  Worst MMA-related music video ever.  Somehow it’s only 4:15 long, though it feels so, so much longer.  Take notice fighters: this is what happens when your theme song is composed by someone other than Jimmy Hart.

After the jump, some actual interview footage with Sanchez and Stevenson from last night’s “Countdown” show, via ESPN.

Joe Stevenson

Note this clever little backhanded compliment: "The bigger your head is, the smaller your heart is.  And the bigger your heart is, the smaller your head is.  And, um…he’s got a big heart."

ILLFLUENT is very popular. A lot of people insult Lil. Wayne and SouljaBoy, but they earn millions.

ILLFLUENT is really good! I guess you care about them about as much as I do. I am obsessed.

Nightmare is the best fight song I ever heard!!!! Where can I buy more ILLFLUENT music?

this video sounds like the song natalie portman did when she hosted SNL a couple years ago.

oops...sorry that post was intended for Mikey Gilz's first post.

Bullshit! the beat was ok at best but the shit video has nothing to do with the overall value (or lack there of) of the song. it's complete crap and these guys need to hang it
they fucking suck beyond belief...but then again i did see it and hear it so i guess i believe it.
recycled shots throughout (not counting the highlight reels)
lame ass lyrics and presence and i just wanted to shoot myself after the second time he did the "sleep" gesture
skinny bitch couldn't fight his way out of that song much less a cage.

Well said!

I just had a nightmare. It was about people not realising the futility and downright fuck-wittedness of arguing on a mesage board.
FuKiN TuFF- February 17, 2009 at 4:43 pm
that was a HORRIBLE video. a freakin nightmare in its own right..

Check your spelling, Cagepotato, I think the word is 'Effluent'

BTW, since you banned a dude for impersonating Old, Bald and Irish, could you perhaps ban TUF Guy for being annoying?

I just had a nightmare. It lasted 4:15.
War Machine's Dad- February 17, 2009 at 12:22 pm

It seems like TUF guy is a straight up faggot ass piece of shit...

What do you think?
War Machine's Dad- February 17, 2009 at 12:20 pm
My Jon Jon loves this song!
Beat yo ass- February 17, 2009 at 12:16 pm
That song fits Diego perfect....
Mike Johnson- February 17, 2009 at 12:14 pm
NIGHTMARE....GREAT SONG! People like to try and tear down people who are doing things with their lives. And BTW, these guys are hispanic not white.

@ Mister Obvious.........

Well I was doing this thing called "Making my point" about how much better Diego is than Joe Stevenson...... So by me saying "I dont know why they're even making this sound competitive" is not meant to be taken literally. Instead, it is to be taken as more of a joke at Joe Stevenson's expense. I was merely suggesting that the two fighters are on different levels much the same way that Cain Velasquez was on a different level than Denis Stojnic. I guess what i'm really trying to say here is stop being a tool, and go pick on TUF GUY like everyone else does.

the way i felt when i watched the video was the same way i felt when i was in fifth grade and i forgot where i was so i let out a huge fart and then i remembered i was in class and all the girls laughed at me

The same thing happened to me only I was in the 4th grade and I didn't forget. Sadly, that was my only claim to fame back in those days... heck its still my only claim to fame ! haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

if he is a "pitbull of his leash in the street" he is gonna get hit by a car or euthanized by animal services
Big Frank- February 17, 2009 at 11:24 am
Pretty similar. They both spend too much time posting things on the internet, and not enough time training. Probably why they will both never amount to anything. Fuck a TUF Guy.
LukeTheDuke- February 17, 2009 at 11:23 am
How did they put that much shit into 4:15?

Sweety, please don't use the computer when mommy's not home. You know I'll get fired if I have to keep checking this site at work in order to make sure you don't accidently shame the family name.

Hey War, "TUF Guy", good luck with your court case. I figured there was some reason you disappeared from here at the same time that War got arrested again...

TUF Guy = War Machine 2.0
