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."
Best way to start your day is watching a video of me working on my footwork in a tutu. pic.twitter.com/utBIVtRvwJ— Stipe Miocic (@stipemiocicufc) February 3, 2017
The aftermath of me helping a guy after being jumped by thugs. The police and 100's of civilians stood and watched. pic.twitter.com/7hN2iJ4kkf— Jake Shields (@jakeshieldsajj) February 2, 2017

If the UFC can't find me an opponent that makes more sense then I'd love too :) Just go sit by your phone and wait @RusHammerMMA— Cub Swanson (@CubSwanson) February 2, 2017

I am wearing this hijab to show support for the Muslim communities who are facing unconstitutional discrimination in this country. I am Christian and if I faced persecution for wearing a cross, I would feel devastated. This is our First Amendment in our Constitution and I am very proud of the diversity in our country. I am sure this picture will give me a taste of the ignorant stereotypes that the Muslim men and women who are in this country face. This is my "safety pin" equivalent. ❤❤❤. http://www.clatl.com/news/article/20850427/antimuslim-encounter-in-east-atlanta-goes-viral (this is what I'm talking about!!)
