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."

On my way to work @bellator153 and reading about Conner retiring , I ask myself, Is this a "we are not friends Dana, only business" moment?— Jacob Stitch Duran (@StitchDuran) April 20, 2016

По прилету в Москву меня в гости принял Зиявудин Магомедов, поздравил меня и сделал подарок, большое спасибо Зиявудин Гаджиевич и за все что Вы делаете для спорта в целом. Очень приятно. At my arrival to Moscow, I was hosted by Ziyavudin Magomedov, he congratulated me and made this present. Thank you very much Ziyavudin Gadzhievich for everything you doing for this sport. It's a big pleasure.
