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."
Woke up really light and ahead of weight cutting schedule so I enjoyed a delicious breakfast and some sunshine, life is good and I am stoked to be only a week out! Next #Saturday I will be dancing with Raquel Pennington in the #Octagon and it will be spectacular! #UFC205 #NewYork #TatevsPennington #TeamTate #CupCakeTate #mcgregor #alvarez #Khi

I married this #Beauty two years ago today She followed me to the jungles of Eastern #Congo for her FIRST ever #camping trip and to meet my #Mbuti #Pygmy family, twice, for three months total. She doesn't just say she loves me, or loves God, or loves people, she shows it in the most incredible ways :-) #iOutKickedMyCoverage #SheMustReallyLoveMe #JungleBabeJane #MyEmmyBear #beautyandthebeast #FightForTheForgotten
I never thought there would be other girls saying that there shouldn't be more division for WMMA. That's greed not wanting to slice the pie.— Cris Cyborg (@criscyborg) November 5, 2016

MMA is constantly evolving and if you want to be the best you have to keep up! An essential piece of equipment you need to have in your MMA bag are these forearm and elbow pads from @centurymartialarts. This will allow you to explore your elbows, cross face techniques, and defense without having the guilt of hurting your partners or yourself. Happy training #ufcsacramento #teamhottie
For everyone who has been speculating, the substance I potentially tested positive for is Ostarine. There's not much news other than that.— Tom Lawlor (@FilthyTomLawlor) November 5, 2016

Won my division at IBJJF No Gi Worlds today I am so happy! I'll go on to do the open weight division tonight and do my best, but man these women here today are very tough! I am so happy and grateful today to be able to compete and keep trying to be the best version of myself that I can be. There will be more ups and downs and victories and defeats, but today I get to go home a world champion - a two time jiu jitsu world champion now!- and no one can ever take that from me :)
