Read on about Diego Sanchez recent heart scare that he felt was a potentially career-ending issue…
CelebNSports247.com got word about Diego Sanchez, the enigmatic mixed martial arts fighter who has gone from The Nightmare to The Dream and back to The Nightmare again.
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.
