Spread the word!

Diego Sanchez defends Jackson-Wink MMA after the gym was verbally assaulted by Donald Cerrone who put them on blast in a recent interview. On Wednesday, August 29, Cerrone spoke with longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan where he gave his feelings about some of the things that have gone at JacksonWink MMA.

This is a gym that he has trained at for the mass majority of his pro-MMA career. During this appearance on Rogan’s podcast, he broke down how in his mind, things have gone downhill. That didn’t sit well with those who still train there.

Sanchez, who also trains at the gym, caught wind of the comments made by Cerrone. Thus, he decided to defend the gym in a recent post on his official Instagram account.

He would not let Cerrone talk badly about his head coach and wrestling coach, Chad Smith. He wrote the following:

”@joerogan @jacksonwink_mma is on fire we’re on the ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️ up’s bro no lie I have been here longer than anyone and seen the many stages of our evolution of this team!!! We’re stronger than ever our defeats only helped us to grow and we are coming into the prosperous stage just ? and see!!! @cowboycerrone had 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 6 months??? That’s not a team mate it’s just someone who is out only for themselves. I’d try to give him a round if we crossed paths here or there the last time he got me real good with a side kick to the liver ??????…. I see it all!!
