Diego Sanchez lost the bout with Myles Jury at UFC 171. His opponent did an impressive job and easily scored the victory. Sanchez was obviously not himself and the day after the fight he offered up an explanation.

"I wasn't myself last night. I sustained food poisoning from eating a beef tartar with raw quail egg as an appetizer at dinner. This was my own mistake I ordered it thinking I need red meat but raw was the wrong choice, I threw up first at 2am & all day fight day", Sanchez posted on his Twitter account. He also added he had no strength during the match.

"I was weak and my performance showed it if you notice I don't go for one takedown because I just didn't have the strength."

This is Diego’s second consecutive loss. In September last year he lost to Gilbert Melendez.
