The Weekly Grind: Sage Northcutt shares weight-cutting photos, Max Holloway mocks Conor McGregor’s latest Instagram post

New, comments

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 don’t usually talk shit but some people just need to hear little something. Yes we were supposed to fight 2 times before but the first time I broke my nose in 5 places 10 days before the fight and had to get surgery as you can see, the second time I got sick after weight ins, left the hotel in a ambulance and spent my 25 year old birthday in a hospital because I got food poisoning right before the fight. I don’t pull out of fights at least I’m in a really bad situation like happened this 2 times. After that I chased this girl for 4 years and she didn’t want nothing to do with me. Now we were going to fight in Brazil and she said she would fight me but not in Brazil, there’s always something but the fight is set up now and you can run but you can’t hide. I will see you in Chicago, dumbass. ‍♀️ Eu não sou de fazer “trash talk”, e só falo o que penso quando me perguntam, mas tem gente que pede pra ouvir, né? Sim, deveríamos ter lutado duas vezes antes, mas na primeira vez que eu quebrei meu nariz em 5 lugares 10 dias antes da luta e tive que fazer uma cirurgia, como você pode ver, a segunda vez que adoeci, depois da pesagem saí do hotel pro hospital de ambulância e foi no hospital que eu dormi no meu aniversário de 25 anos, internada por causa de uma infecção intestinal. Eu nunca pedi luta fácil, sempre pisei no octógono com as melhores da divisão e não saio de luta a não ser que aconteça algo dessa gravidade. Depois disso, persegui essa garota por 4 anos e ela não queria lutar. Agora nós iríamos lutar no Brasil e ela disse que no meu país não lutaria. Sempre com uma desculpa. Agora tá marcado e eu te vejo em Chicago. ‍♀️ #teamcg

For those of you who have been asking when my next fight is... well, I'm not sure when the next will be but it will not be with the UFC but rather with the @profightleague in the Million Dollar tournament. I've been doing this for a while now and I understand the business side of it. I didn't do the job that was expected of me and like all jobs I was released, rightfully so. Unfortunately, I under performed with the UFC and didn't achieve the goal I wanted to with that opportunity. I regret nothing, I took a chance at something I wanted and came up short. The fighter/competitor in me is highly disappointed with myself for allowing things to get away from me. The UFC chapter is closed for now... I'd like to thank the UFC staff for treating me so well during my employment. From day one I was treated well and with respect. I appreciate that greatly. Now with that being said, I am moving forward toward the next chapter. I'm extremely excited and fired up to be part of the @profighteague and their rebirth. The timing is perfect because I'm in my own rebirth process as well. As always I'm going to represent this organization as professionally as I possibly can. I look forward to being a pivotal part of the PFL's growth in this sport. All praise and glory to God. 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. - Psalms 121:1-2 At my highest and my lowest, He's been with me and seen me through to lands of milk and honey. Thank you God for blessing me with this incredible opportunity for my family and myself. Now let's go secure this bag!!!! #Godisgood #hardwork #dedication #mma #ufc #PFL #professional #athlete #Godsplan #winningatlife #blackexcellence
