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."
