Sanchez’s history, past controveries
Sanchez made his name as a top-shelf Gracie Barra athlete, winning the In 2015 ADCC +99kg championship and taking second in 2017. He faced and defeated legends such as Dean Lister and Vinny Magalhães in his time, utilizing a top-heavy style in both gi and nogi competition.
His later years were marred with controversy, video of overly aggressive sparring with white belt students and his famously joint locking UFC fighter Sean Strickland during training camp. There were also multiple accusations dating from 2016-2021 that allege inappropriate, abusive relationships between Sanchez and his female students.
