It’s been a while, but you remember Joshua Fabia, don’t you?
Fabia, founder of the School of Self-Awareness, is the guy with no MMA training experience whom UFC veteran Diego Sanchez put his complete trust in after leaving Jackson Wink MMA.
Fabia trained Sanchez for his most recent fight in February, against Michel Pereira, which resulted in a disqualification win for Sanchez after an illegal knee. It was around this time that some bizarre stories about Fabia started to surface, including the fact that he taught Sanchez an apparent death choke prior to UFC 239 and warned commission officials to be on the lookout during his fight with Michael Chiesa.
“How can I put this? I went in full-belief mode: Everything they tell me to do, I’m going to do it 100 percent. Man, it was the craziest sh*t I’ve ever done. At one point, Joshua, he was running after us in a locked cage with a real, sharp blade to make us move.”
Sounds bizarre, doesn’t it? Well, it looks bizarre, too. Here’s the video Meek posted Friday on Twitter:

As MMA Junkie Radio host “Gorgeous” George said in our group chat after seeing this, “most fighters are willing to take a stab at changing their training, but I don’t think this program is gonna stick.”
LOL I agree.
