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."

It was amazing to spend time with the boys and girls club of Las Vegas, bowling strikes and eating some pizza. I was able to hand out back to school backpacks & supply to the kids. It was so gratifying to see how thankful these children were! I was so touched by one of the children's response after receiving her backpack, she came up to me and gave the most welcoming hug and then proceeded to tell me she always wanted to go school shopping. My heart sunk into my stomach and I fought back some tears! I'm very thankful I'm able to use my platform to help others just by donating a little bit of my time! Thank you #StrikesForKids for giving me the opportunity to be inspired by these kids!!!

Latest #TatesTravels a random hike on the drive back from #LA to #Vegas called North Etiwanda Loop. I didn't have time to do the whole Loop so I just went straight out and back! It was awesome!! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #Difficulty: Moderate #Distance: 3.2 miles #Elevation gain: 800ft Dogs allowed! And there's a waterfall at the top!
