Diego Sanchez Speaks Out About His UFC 171 Loss

UFC lightweight veteran and TUF 1 winner, Diego Sanchez spoke out about his UFC 171 unanimous decision defeat to Myles Jury stating that he had food poisoning during the bout and explaining it was the beef tar tar with raw quail egg he ordered as a starter the night before that had him throwing up just hours after.

Sanchez posted the following via his personal Twitter page:

I wasn’t my self last night I sustained Food poisoning from eating a beef tar tar with raw quail egg as a appetizer at dinner

This was my own mistake I ordered it thinking I need red meat but raw was the wrong choice, I threw up first at at 2am & all day fight day.

This was not part of @TheDolceDiet I screwed my self! I thought because I had done everything do perfect I could sway a little & it cost me.

I was weak and my performance showed it if you notice I don’t go for one takedown because I just didn’t have the strength.

Jury and his team fought a good fight against me and they did win, but I wanted my fans to know the truth why I was not all there.

Take what you want from it it is the truth. I made a horrible choice and it’s no ones fault but mine.

Yea people gonna talk shit I know but I wanted my fans the ones who care and could see I was not myself why I was not my self
