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."

“What do you do for strength training?” Is always a common question. I do a variety of many different workouts. A big majority of them are just using body weight. Pull ups being something I do frequent... we change them up... some on the rings, some on the bar, some chin ups, wide grip, narrow grip, some kipping some strict, some with a slow tempo, some explosive and fast. Today we finished with strict pull ups focusing on bringing the bar to my chest instead of just getting the chin to the bar. Thank you @teamturningpoint for your constant push. Always my #hollysholmies

I refuse to call it grey so I'm sticking with clear!
This is a #ThrowbackThursday to about 2 weeks ago when I decided to say F it and wore a bikini at 35 weeks (8 months) pregnant. Some people probably looked at me funny at the pool but whatever!! I’m proud of my #BabyBump! I also have my newest weekly #pregnancy blog out so check the link in my bio>>>@mieshatate or @maeband ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #pregnantblogger #firsttimemommy #pregnant #3rdtrimester #8monthspregnant #bikini #pregnantbelly #babyonboard #cupcakeintheoven #maeband
There’s no motivation like the one that you grow in your belly! Remember how great exercise is for you and your baby even if you’ve never worked out before it’s not to late to start! 8 months along and still doing what I can! #pregnancy #3rdtrimester #babybump #babybelly #fitmom #fitpregnancy #workoutmotivation #StayMotivated #

Well affliction paid me a lot to wear that jacket. It’s called sponsorship, you may wanna try and get some. Also, if you’re gonna spend hours trawling the web looking for a bad pic, there’s way worse ones than that. #fail https://t.co/ADDBMrYpXN— michael (@bisping) May 4, 2018
My team reached out to @ScottCoker @rich_chou they’re going to offer you a fight against me in New York. Last time we supposed to fight they couldn’t find you for 2 weeks.

Since #Americanninjawarrior decided to post my first run in 2014 after the @bellatormma fights in #chicago this Saturday. Here’s when I went back 1 year later and did not so bad. My goal was just to do better than the first time and take an opportunity that was presented to me. I know every year sooo many people submit videos trying to get on the show and I was called by the producers to try out the course and so I did. * I couldn’t find the original video so I had to repost my own video. How lame * @alienware @teamallmax @purespectrumhemp @fuelmeals
I was gonna lower myself to responding with an insult, but it seems the public have done it for me. Haha. Still a salty little bitch aren’t you— michael (@bisping) May 5, 2018

In today's fake news....running your mouth on Twitter doesn't constitute an official fight offer! https://t.co/ZKQZapI18e— Neil Magny (@NeilMagny) May 2, 2018
You can't even make weight and I'm willing to slap the out of you!— Neil Magny (@NeilMagny) May 2, 2018
