Lot's going on in Diego's life at the moment. So let's remind ourselves just how much of a great guy he is.
In 2017 Diego made a dream come true for a fighter with Down syndrome, that fighter is called Isaac "The Shermanator" Marquez. 👇🏼
Both these warriors trained at the Jackson Wink MMA Academy. Here is Isaac putting some ground and pound down at Jackson Wink.
Not only does the Jackson Wink MMA facility look amazing but it also looks to be super-inclusive, which is what we see with nearly ever MMA gym. No matter what your background, then if you show up to train, then you are one of us.
Diego is a legend of MMA and a true pioneer for the UFC in general, and from listening to his recent podcast with Ariel Helwani, he has been to hell and back, divorce, loss of friends & poor mental health.
Regardless of the criticism aimed at Diego and his new coach, manager, best friend and mentor we do wish him all the best and if he wants to share some of his knowledge with up and coming fighters, then we hope he chooses to do so here.
