The Mexican-American has been outspoken about alternative treatments to the vaccine.

But becoming seriously ill, he said: “Covid pneumonia never gives up.

“Blood clots in both of my legs.

“I have thousands and thousands of prayer messages to read while I’m in the hospital again !! very inspiring !! I get churches, families and just a lot of great people who put me in their heart and bring it to god the father.

The ex-UFC star suggested alternatives to vaccines last week.

He said, “If you qualify for the regeneron antibodies they work, it’s only been 6 hours and I feel better!”

“Don’t wait if you catch the virus it’s only getting worse, go ahead, you know, jump on it ASAP #covidmedicne.

“I’m browsing it but can’t say I’m sold on the vax right now.”

Sanchez was released from the UFC earlier this year for health concerns.

The lightweight welterweight fighter is 31-13-0.

But a unanimous decision loss to Jake Matthews in 2020 was his last in the UFC.

Fans have taken the time to show Sanchez their support for the fighter in the face of an uphill battle ahead with the complications of Covid.

One of them said, “Heavenly Father, we ask you for a complete healing in Diego from head to toe. “

Another fan joked, “You got that, Diego! Covid pneumonia isn’t shit compared to three rounds inside the octagon with Clay Guida. “

However, not all responses have been positive.

One Twitter user said sarcastically, “If only you could have done something to prevent this!
