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."

JCVD wants to show how UFC fighters can improve their kicks. -- Right now, it's a mess. I want to teach people how to have power and flexibility and dexterity with the legs," Van Damme told TMZ. Right now, it's a mess. They (UFC Fighters) are missing, they are out of balance. Thank god they have good jiu-jitsu. And some guys have good eyes to kick in the right position when the guy is off balance, but to lift your leg, and arm your leg like a fist... Continue video. VC: TMZ Sports.
This is a truly memorable #throwbackthursday for me, it was my first amateur mma fight 10 years ago and I got my nose smashed clean in, had no idea what a thai clinch was nor how to defend against it. Needless to say, I learned something very important that day and in retrospect very imprtant to who I am today. I learned to take the good with the bad. I learned how to fall down, I also learned how to get back up. I learned that I'm a lot tougher than I ever knew, and I learned that adversity will always be a part of life. Its whether you cower down to it or you stand stronger for it that makes the difference. #tbt #mma
