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."
Some say there’s a difference between being smart and intelligent. Everyone knows that common sense isn’t so common, but when it comes to being wise beyond years it’s proven I’ve got the Midas touch. It’s simple math, being 50-0 lets you know I READ my opponents just as clear as you can READ this $100,000,000 check. I stay getting checks like this, I will always have the last laugh!

Thanks @joerogan for having @hypeordie and I on we got to share so many ideas that I’ve been wanting to get out there! After listening I only wish I would have paid more homage to @rondarousey in the discussion about promo because of how much she’s done for women’s mma. I agree that @amanda_leoa could do more promo in general but I believe her time is coming and I think she can grow into a huge star as well. Anyways it was an honor and we had a great time! Have a great night everybody!

Like always, I'm gonna be in the gym everyday to help my brother @dc_mma become the next heavyweight champ at #UFC226. Once he wins, things could get interesting. #AndNew #WeAreAKA #GonnaGetMyBeltBack— Cain Velasquez (@cainmma) January 27, 2018

In my dark way, I'm taking some time off which will benefit my personal life by going back home to enjoy family and friends . Then I'll be back to set businesses up #relaxation #familytime— Francis NGannou (@francis_ngannou) January 25, 2018
People will hate you, shake you, and break you, but how strong you stand is what makes you. Words of wisdom from @kingjames these words are what keep me going, when all seems lost. Thank you LeBron for being an inspiration to me and many others. Thank you for reminding me that it is presiatance and consistency that will make a person great! This video is dedicated to you! 30 kicks each side without putting my foot down (it's not 30k, but ya gotta start somewhere) I'm gonna do this everyday to become the best! Congratulations on your 30,000 points! AMAZING @uninterrupted #30kandklimbing #uninterrupted #kingjames
Stoked to announce my partnership with @vitagoods. They just sent me the craziest care package of things I use or wanted. Everything I wanted is now on my collection page vitagoods.com/dillashaw. I'm going to be passing on these HUGE discounts to all my fans, starting with this Digital Kitchen Scale. Making 135 is cake, but making 125 is going to require me being diligent with my diet and the accuracy of this scale will make sure I stay on track...and help Bronson with early morning weigh-ins as well. Grab it now for 50% off.

You want to talk business @MeganA_mma? I didn’t come to USA on a tourist visa to work illegally then have personal issues so I could marry and stay in America!! @uscis https://t.co/J72mbsCAqS— Cris Cyborg (@criscyborg) January 23, 2018
