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."

Well, I could give you million reasons to make the fight against Bisping happen, but the truth is that he is afraid. I'm not going to compare myself to others even mention someone else, but in my perspective I believe I have the right to a fight with him once again, because I have won London's fight and a rematch was promised. However, as he was injured by me during the fight, he wouldn't be prepared to fight too soon, then he was ready to replace someone, but not to face me in Brazil, right? You know I lived an unexpected situation having a surgery, but if it wasn't happened I could fight in Brazil. So, I think it's time to show that I'm serious, I've never asked for a rematch with no adversary, but I do want to have an opportunity of a fight with Bisping, I deserve that for everything I have achieve into the organization saving last time fights' events even in upper categories, fighting injured , broke a leg. I have proved why I am the best in world in this sport and I humbly say that none of my adversaries who supposedly defeated me have achieved or will my actions into the organization. Undoubtely, I believe this rematch will be the best step for UFC and Dana is aware of it, because numbers does tell and as we always have to stand by the group let it bem from both sides. If I could help him to feel more confident and less afraid I would agree to fight him in his hometown, Manchester. Bom, eu poderia dar milhões de motivos para justificar minha luta com o Bisping... Porém de nada irá adiantar, pois percebo uma clara e infeliz insegurança dele aceitar lutar comigo... É uma pena tal sentimento (ele acabou de conquistar o cinturão com os devidos méritos e honra)..! Com o intuito de reduzir tal insegurança e "receio", desde já me coloco a disposição para lutar na casa dele, em Manchester @mikebisping @danawhiteufc

Fighters be like.... I was 175 in January & 145 today. Reality vs expectation. There is a much bigger fight than what you see go on in that cage. And If I can do it, anyone of y'all can. #teamalphacat #ufc200 #bulkingJ/K #strongAF #regretnothing #alphacatzingano #sorrynotsorry #notashamed #thatbasstho #cake
Quite possibly the most amazing picture that will ever get captured in my career. Not just the knockout and cage stand, but also @briechandler with her hands in the air.
