Thanksgiving didn’t go unnoticed this year in the MMA world.
While some ate a good amount of food and spent time with their friends and family, others celebrated the holiday with weight cuts, training, and some even took the opportunity to call out their fellow fighters.
Check out below how the MMA world celebrated this year’s Thanksgiving:
Happy Thanksgiving! Stay fit my friend. #realboxingmatch #2018 @thenotoriousmma

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Grateful to be with my family this year. Also a mighty thank you to all the military & medics out there who are away from their families during this holiday season. You’re appreciated and I hope to see some locals tomorrow at JBLM

My wife cooked this bird to perfection. Feeling pretty thankful today.
When I get asked what I am most thankful for this year, this little bundle of joy is the first thing that comes to mind. The amount of fun, love and laughter @briechandler and I have had in the last month is a dream come true. I dare you to watch this video and not smile. #HapWhitaker _ #thanksgiving #thankful #thankfulthursday #adoption #adopted

She loves hunting! My Luna bear. Looks like we are having pheasant for thanksgiving! Now before everyone talks shit remember the store bought caged Turkeys your about to eat and the ham dinner you bought at Walmart!
I’m thankful for all the people who’ve been through hell, had it rough, been treated unfairly… and are still treating people right anyway. Gratitude. @ufc

Here’s your 4th video @vitagoods. Happy Thanksgiving #outcastsandunderdogs
It’s a little disheartening to me that it takes a certain day for me to really think about & reflect on everything that I’m #thankful for… I’m #blessed as all heck… I’m thankful for my rock & #Queen @mariamouse118 who protects me, even from myself sometimes…I’m thankful for my #firstborn @kyung_henderson & that he’s such an amazing & loving bigger brother…I’m thankful for my 2nd son (of a 2nd son), @kub_henderson, who’s completely healthy & a joy to his mama… I’m thankful af to you who are taking the time to read my words, I’ve picked a crazy, non-traditional career & lifestyle & there’s not a chance I could have done everything I have so far w/o such soul-strengthening support, kind words, positive vibes & motivation… #TeamHenderson has got some big things in store for 2018 so stay tuned & be encouraged; #LiveYourDreams & #ChaseYourMermaids, you’ve only got so many days on this planet, make’em count & stay thankful…
If you’re going Black Friday shopping tomorrow please record all fistfights…and pick me up a snes Classic please
