Diego Sanchez Defends Jackson Wink MMA Gym And Goes After Donald Cerrone Says “You’re Not My Homie Anymore”
On Wednesday, former UFC lightweight title contender Donald Cerrone opens up on a heartfelt falling out from Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico on the latest episode of the JRE MMA show. ‘Cowboy’ says he’s no longer allowed to enter at the gym after training complications arose when Cerrone was offered a fight with Mike Perry at UFC Fight Night 139 on Nov. 10.
Cerrone also destroys Mike Winkeljohn and wrestling coach Chad Smith, claims Mike ruined Jackson-Wink team.
‘Cowboy’ move back to Denver and currently training at his own BMF Ranch gym.
The first person and teammate of Cerrone a UFC welterweight veteran and Jackson-Wink staple Diego Sanchez came in to defend the coaches and gym, also assured that he’d be happy to fight ‘Cowboy’ if Perry falls out via social media post.
Sanchez also claims Cerrone never really contributed in anyone’s career but himself.
“I have been here longer than anyone and seen the many stages of our evolution of this team,” Sanchez wrote. “Cowboy Cerrone has been so busy building his empire the past three four years and he’s done a fantastic job doing it but that’s been his focus, he’s never been here!!! Maybe a grappling class here or there a sparring every six months??? That’s not a team mate it’s just someone who is out only for themselves.”
“In the past ten years Cowboy never went out of his way to help me get ready for a fight not ounce,” Sanchez said. “That’s why I posted previously about why I was #teamplatinum Mike Perry is here to give me rounds if I need them and helped me more in one camp than Cowboy did in ten years. Don’t bad mouth my gym or my coach Mike Winkeljohn we’re good peeps striving to better our city our state and our sport!!!! If Perry falls out come November I’LL BE READY TO FILL IN WITH ZERO HESITATION! And we know where Greg Jackson will be #loyalty #itsnotallaboutmoney #realtalk.”
Since then Sanchez followed up with another statement, where he defended coach Chad Smith and said Cerrone is no longer his homie.
“What if he was talking about your brother your wrestling coach? How would you respond? BTW this is all BS and my coach @chadinspiremma is so legit that’s why I chose him to corner me and be one of leaded into a battle where my life is on the line!!!! @cowboycerrone your not my homie anymore! And if someone was trashing @superdwrestling publicly like this you wouldn’t have it @bmfranch @jacksonwink_mma.” – Diego Sanchez on Instagram.
