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.”

Hoping to be cleared to train 100% in the next couple weeks, so we can start negotiations for a top contender fight by the fall. I’m only 27 and I’m only getting better. Y’all thought last fight was good? ….y’all haven’t seen me at my best yet! #OnAmission4Gold

Walking in the @UFCPI and ran into a monster and almost ran away, then I realized it was @SHAQ. I think this is the very first time that somebody has made me look so little. pic.twitter.com/ywf0DHbaJJ
