    In the Fabia Sanchez Helwani interview, ariel asked Diego to describe his meet cute with Fabia.

    I don’t think this part of the interview is getting much attention here, hence the new thread.

    Diego says it’s a great story and goes into the fun details.

    Diego in a dark gym eyeballs Fabia floating through the gym
    Diego: what do you do
    Fabia: orchestrate movements in the dark

    Diego and Fabia proceed to pummel and as Diego puts it they each start stepping up intensity...then....BAM Fabia catches Diego in a submission and diego becomes the student

    they rest is history

    Fabia getting a lot of shit, but do YOU sherbro se think you can catch an mma fighter like that in the wild???

    this story alone shows Fabia is bringing something and should get respect

    I challenge you to try and do this to the next mma fighter you see in the airport

    Maybe not be able to sub him but I'd KO the shit out of Diego.

    6'10, 400lbs.

    Im sure he could beat me up but now I am also sure I could get him involved in multiple pyramid schemes.

    Diego hasn't been submitted in mma and most likely wont ever be submitted in mma.

    But I like my chances. <4>

    There are probably only a handful of guys in MMA that can actually get him in a submission. He's a frckin' weird dude but he can straight up grapple. Well he used to be able to, when he actually used it during his fights.

    Yeah is this is not a red flag for dana and the ufc to actually show they give a shit about fighters and not give Diego any fights I don't know what would be.

    The guy was bat shit crazy when we first saw him on TUF 15yrs ago and the beatings he's taken have not helped.

    I think Saulo gave him is BJJ Black Belt (could be wrong) - I'm pretty sure he was brown belt when he moved to Saulo's like over a decade ago.

    not mma but ADCC:



    I read an interview with Marcelo and he mentioned that he dragged the match out because he wanted to get some mat time in. You can see near the end when he amps it up and catches Diego.

    Diego was only a freaking purple belt there. Maybe Marcelo carried him a little but FFS earlier in the tournament, Aoki couldn't last 2 minutes with Marcelo.
