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'M ON THE COVER OF #espnbodyissue2017 Words can't begin to describe how I'm feeling right now. I'm so honored, and blessed to have the opportunity to be placed among these to level athletes. I want to thank @espn for capturing the true essence of me showing that I can be strong, confident, vulnerable and free all at once! I was scared to bare it all and allow myself to be vulnerable, but I realized that stepping outside of your comfort zone is what makes you stronger! I couldn't have done any of this without the support of my husband @joshuagomez12 he taught me how to love all aspects of my body, at all the different stages. Pre baby, pregnancy, post baby, off season, in season, win or lose I was always beautiful, and I will forever be thankful. I embrace my body because it is a reflection of my life story! Thank you all for all the love and support!!! You guys are the best . . . . #teamhottie #mma #wmma #karate #karatehottie #hottie #wideawake #kicks #body #flex #confidence #ufc #espn #espnbodyissue #espnw #nm #michellewaterson

I cut 4lbs for this fight.... it's all about that long term dieting, not the drastic cuts. @dacikfitfoods #mealprep #healthfirst pic.twitter.com/4BnzVqfylj— Carla Esparza (@CarlaEsparza1) June 27, 2017

Hoje foi aqueles dias que o relógio despertou e meu corpo totalmente exausto. Queria apenas fazer um cardio, mas cheguei e fui praticamente obrigada por @criscyborg @kennethleverich ♀️ Ok, quando o corpo não responde sobra a mente. Foram 35 minutos de cardio, de @assaultairbike de burpee, pulo na caixa, pular corda, core, corrida e muito mais ♀️ Mais de 6 anos que meus ligamentos colaterais foram embora e correr só no meu ritmo. Mas hoje fizemos sprint e kenny me pediu em 1:22 min cada repetição, boom 58 segundos. Motivo? @criscyborg gritando 29 dias, ninguém vai nos tocar Por um mundo com mais pessoas puxando as outras pra cima que puxando tapetes Obrigado @kennethleverich você é sensacional. obrigado @criscyborg Vale escutar o áudio july 7 and july 30 Muay thai Debut and @rizin_pr #mma #gabigarcia #teampossible #teamgabigarcia #teamwork #rizin #rizinff #rizin2017 #ufcanaheim #criscyborg
