The life of a professional fighter isn’t all glitz and glamour.
As if getting punched, kicked, kneed, choked and twisted into a pretzel on a regular basis isn’t enough, fighters attract a general wackiness that makes their lives, well…interesting.
To commemorate these day-to-day hardships, slip-ups, pranks, and more, we bring you, “The Weekly Grind.”
Are these @UFC fighters for real?! Former champ @lyotomachidafw made Fabricio Werdum a special “Drink of the Champions” ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ USADA approved

I know I’m not the same fighter I was 20 years ago, I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago… As a matter of fact, I’m not the same fighter I was 5 years ago,I’m just an old legend putting in work in 16 oz gloves #TMT #TBE @mayweatherpromotions

TITO? Tito’s just a fat guy in a cheap suit screaming from a seat he can’t afford. He quit the sport. He’s NOT RELEVANT.

I’M ON THE COVER OF #espnbodyissue2017 Words can’t begin to describe how I’m feeling right now. I’m so honored, and blessed to have the opportunity to be placed among these to level athletes. I want to thank @espn for capturing the true essence of me showing that I can be strong, confident, vulnerable and free all at once! I was scared to bare it all and allow myself to be vulnerable, but I realized that stepping outside of your comfort zone is what makes you stronger! I couldn’t have done any of this without the support of my husband @joshuagomez12 he taught me how to love all aspects of my body, at all the different stages. Pre baby, pregnancy, post baby, off season, in season, win or lose I was always beautiful, and I will forever be thankful. I embrace my body because it is a reflection of my life story! Thank you all for all the love and support!!! You guys are the best . . . . #teamhottie #mma #wmma #karate #karatehottie #hottie #wideawake #kicks #body #flex #confidence #ufc #espn #espnbodyissue #espnw #nm #michellewaterson

How am I supposed to fully enjoy my training camp if I don’t have @chopper_chi to beat on in NBA 2k? He tries so hard but he’s just no good. He tries tho. I miss you chi. When I have rough days would u be willing to play me online for confidence. Serious question?
