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 love boxing but it's not an MMA fight because nobody's paying $100 to watch a thirty second destruction. https://t.co/ep3uVa5Dpm— Dan Hardy (@danhardymma) August 12, 2017
I think each dominates in their own realm, boxing fans admit this though at least. How'd that Holm vs Rousey fight turn out again? https://t.co/XpdajD4IJv— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 12, 2017
The professional boxer learned how to fight and won by head kick. What point were you trying to make? https://t.co/UfW5ff1NQi— Dan Hardy (@danhardymma) August 12, 2017

Before Holly signed with the UFC her management teased of an independent PPV one day between #TeamCyborg and #TeamHolm. When we both signed to the @UFC I tried to negotiate a fight as the Co-Main against Holly Holm the night Ronda fought Cat Zingano in LA. Holly fought Raquel Pennington instead, while I fought for @invictafc the night before. At #ufc198 I requested Holly, and then again when I was the main event on @fs1 for #ufcfn95. Holly won easily in Singapore, and Megan Anderson was forced to withdrawal my team again requested Holm for #ufc214. #CyborgNation has been very loud online since #ufc214 and wants #CyborgVHolm I want my next fight to be the biggest fight I can make for the fans who have supported me my entire career. #ufc219 I want to face Holly Holm in Vegas. Let the @UFC know this is a PPV you will buy! =========================== Antes de Holly ter assinado com o UFC, sua empresários falavam em fazer luta entre nós em um PPV independente #TeamCyborg vs #TeamHolm. Quando nós dois assinamos com @UFC, tentei negociar uma luta como o Co-Main contra Holly Holm na noite em que Ronda lutou com a Zingano em Los Angeles. Holly lutou contra Raquel Pennington em vez disso, enquanto eu lutava pela @invictafc na noite anterior. Em #ufc198 pedi Holly e pedi novamente, no #ufcbrasília evento principal no @fs1 ! Holly ganhou facilmente em Singapura, e Megan Anderson foi retirada do #ufc214 e novamente solicitamos Holm para #ufc214. #CyborgNation foi muito online desde #ufc214 e quer #CyborgVsHolm Eu quero minha próxima luta para ser a maior luta que eu possa fazer pelos fãs que me apoiaram toda a minha carreira. #Ufc219 . Quero enfrentar Holly Holm em Las Vegas. Deixe o @UFC saber que este é um PPV que você vai comprar!
