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."

The moment a man calls you “cock guy” and that I have “too much cock”. I don’t know if it’s a insult or compliment. @ufc ~ 20 days to go pic.twitter.com/4LISUWt2mp— Alistair Overeem (@Alistairovereem) June 18, 2017
