‘Dude, you’re not my father’ – UFC fighter defends his decision to give birth to his son

I was born in Mexico and my father was born here, a Mexican father told FOX Sports’ Sean Grande. 

Mexican MMA fighter Diego Sanchez, who was born and raised in the United States, made the comments in an interview with Fox Sports’ Jorge Ramos. 

He was asked about his comments regarding his father’s nationality and whether he thinks his family would have welcomed him to their country had they been born here. 

“That’s a very difficult topic to answer,” Sanchez said.

“You’re always talking about the country that you were born in, that your parents were from, but in reality, that’s just not the case.

I was not born in the U.S., but my dad was born, and we moved here when he was in college.

It’s not that I don’t feel like he was born anywhere else, but I do not think that I would have felt welcome here.” 

Sanchez also explained that the fact that he and his father moved to the U to attend college helped him realize the difference between his culture and the U of S. He also noted that his mother and his older sister came from Mexico, but that he never told them about his birth. 

According to the UFC, Sanchez has two sons, 11-year-old Diego and 10-year, 13-year old Diego Jr. Both are American citizens. 

Sergio Garcia/Associated Press Santos has a history of controversy, with him having been suspended three times in his MMA career and also being kicked out of the UFC.

He was suspended in April 2015 after his first fight in November 2015, and he was suspended for five weeks for failing a drug test in August 2016. 

His first fight against Jorge Masvidal was delayed when the Brazilian lost a decision, but he returned to the Octagon in September 2016 to finish Masvidega’s win. 

Despite his recent suspensions, Sanchez remains a top contender to win the UFC lightweight title at UFC 209 on July 11, according to UFC president Dana White. 

On Monday, the UFC released a video in which Sanchez spoke about his family. 

After the interview, Sanchez told Ramos he did not feel like his comments were appropriate, but the interview did not end there. 

As he continued to defend his comments, he said he felt bad for those who are “living in fear” because of what his father is doing.

“For those of you who are living in fear because you are not a Mexican, you should be able to do what you want to do,” Sanchez told Fox Sports.

“But I’m not gonna stop saying that because people want to take away your right to say what you think and live in fear.”
