The Weekly Grind: Mike Perry blasts his girlfriend with tennis balls, Darren Till trolls Stephen Thompson

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 am a conservationist to the core. I love the outdoors and I love animals. I believe environmental protection of habitats is on the forefront of every outdoorsman’s mind. This includes hunters. Real hunters do more to protect the environment than anyone I know. They are not tweeting #thoughts, #climatechange, and #prayers… they are doing something about it. They donate to organizations that understand how to fight to protect animals. Hunters unlike anyone else on earth have a connection to nature and a love for it. We try to ensure and maintain natures balance. We don’t poach and we never unnecessarily kill. We protect. Normally when I hunt it is for food. I eat every ounce of usable meat and use every inch of hide. They other form of hunting is to either protect habitats or to help maintain the proper equilibrium. Feral hogs interrupt that symmetry. There has been a plague spreading through the southern states. Feral pigs are a non-indigenous invasive species. They are responsible for $100 million in agricultural damage and the destruction of indigenous habitats and animals. It is estimated that there are 4-5 million feral pigs in the south now and that number is growing by the day. One sow (female pig) can have anywhere from 8-24 piglets in one year and they can start reproducing around 6 months old. Nothing has been shown to slow the rising population of hogs. Trapping and aerial gunning from a helicopter has been proven to be the most successful and efficient. This is a video of just that. These are the recommended methods try and control the this invasive species…. It is also fun as hell!!! Thanks @lastshadowtx for helping farmers.
