Social media has become a significant part of the sporting landscape. But few, if any, professional sports match the level of interaction and personal access provided by MMA.
In an individual competition in which nearly every athlete is chasing the same goal of financial success and championship glory, it’s important for fighters to provide insight into their lives in order to connect with fans and gain followings.
Although the life of a fighter often can be mundane and repetitive, there still are moments of interest that take place outside the cage, ring or training room. Here are some of the most interesting of those occurrences from the past week.

Damage was limited to landscaping, trees, and the pool screen. We will certainly take it!My twin bro was able to drive from Orlando to South Florida this AM to assess the house. No major structural damage. Hoping to fly back home w/ my kids on Wednesday. Appreciate all the well wishes. ????
