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."
I cant take my children to the doctor, let alone Disneyland, and you want me to be greatful to fight and be paid poverty level wages?!#wsof— Shawn Jordan (@savageshawn) April 25, 2016
After my last UFC win, I bought the Golden Opulance $1000 ice cream sundae. After this win, I have decided to donate $1000 to the people affected by the earthquake in Ecuador . I am posting this not for praise, but just to raise an awareness for the people suffering in Ecuador.❤️ (I did my research of different foundations and wanted to make sure that the money was actually going to the people. The Brother's Brother Foundation is accredited by the BBB. Listed by Forbes in its "50 largest charities of 2015 list", rated as having 100% fundraising efficiency effort.

Refuse to talk, fans complain they're in the dark. Give one to share what you know and fans complain you're attention seeking. Oh MMA— Coach Kavanagh (@John_Kavanagh) April 28, 2016
Imagine if all fighters used a part of their last name for their nickname, like the Reem? I could be Elias "the Dorou" Theodorou.— The Spartan (@EliasTheodorou) April 28, 2016
