Read on about Diego Sanchez recent heart scare that he felt was a potentially career-ending issue…
Diego Sanchez recently opened up about his recent health scare he suffered while training to the MMA Hour.
Lion Heart weighed in recalling:
“I hit the ground, and I felt something inside my heart. It wasn’t, like, a muscular injury. It was something internal. … I just laid down and said, ‘I’m done for the week.’ The moment I laid down at the back of [that gym], I instantly knew it was because of that medical marijuana.”
“Whatever happened, it was serious. I could feel something going on, and I was very, very terrified that if I got my heart rate back up that I could, like, die or something.”
At first, Sanchez didn’t go to the hospital or a doctor. Instead he took time off from training, fasting and praying. Despite this serious scare, Sanchez (27-9, 16-9 UFC) learned via a doctor, who told him that it was a “muscular injury” and that his heart was “perfectly fine.”
“My lungs were being affected. And I still had the mentality to train like a warrior, so when [the heart issue] happened to me, that day at the gym, I was still experimenting with medical marijuana. … I did it, and I loved it, and I got my medicinal medicine. … I’m not judging. I’m saying that medical marijuana’s not for everybody, and it’s not for me.”
FYI: If it was a heart attack, Sanchez might have ended up dead at home. Never go home when you have a heart scare like Diego. Always go to the hospital to be save, you don’t want to die because of being scared of stubborn.
