Diego Sanchez and Ali Sonoma Call It Quits

diego sanchez

The Ultimate Fighter Season 1 winner Diego Sanchez and Ex-UFC ring girl Ali Sonoma split up, said Sonoma in recent interview with Jarry Park.

AH: Are you and Diego still together?

AS: No, we decided to call it quits based on our careers. I will be away for months…we are still best friends, though. We talk everyday. I do and always will love him. He is on a different level of any guy I have ever met.

AH: There was some speculation that your relationship with UFC fighter Diego Sanchez upset key members of the organization. Did they ever mention anything of that sort?

AS: I never got any “rules” related to dating. UFC did not particularly favor us going out but you can’t help who you fall in love with, it just happens. Once it was official, everyone seemed to freak out – either loving it or hating it. They seemed to blame me for his last losses. I never got in the way of his training, I never even saw him during that time. If anything we supported each other.

Ali Sonoma left the UFC so she could host “The Mag”, a reality show on MTV.

AH: Where can fans of yours see you next?

AS: Most likey on FX or MTV for the reality show “The Mag” and in the film “Say Goodnight” and many more films to come.

Ali Sonoma will be missed! No amount of silicone (Edith Larente) can replace your natural beauty.
