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."

Help! I was bit on the leg by a blackwidow spider while working in my new garden! The bite was 6 days ago, yesterday the dr gave me antibiotics and cream. My leg is in a lot of pain this morning. Do you think I should return to the Dr? Interesting fact about the black widow spider I found online: the blackwidow kills their husband when they become pregnant... Ajuda! Mordida na perna por uma aranha viuva Negra, enquanto trabalhava no meu novo jardim! A mordida foi de 6 dias atrás, ontem o dr me deu antibióticos e creme. Minha perna está em um monte de dor, esta manhã. Você acha que eu deveria voltar ao Dr? Fato interessante sobre a aranha viúva negra encontrei on-line: o viuva Negra mata o seu marido quando engravidam ...
