Just In MMA’s week out of the cage: Stipe Miocic cleans toilets, fighters celebrate #NationalDogDay MMA Life

Check out the latest breaking UFC NEWS

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.

It’s been 4 years since me and my ❤ said “I do” in front of our friends and family. Since day one it has been us against the world, working as a team and doing everything we want to do… We’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the world together and now have found our own little slice of paradise in the south of Spain, it’s not been perfect and everyday has its challenges but over coming them together and conquering our fears is what life is about. I knew from the moment we met that I wanted you in my life! But I didn’t know how amazing of a mum you would become or how much better of a person you would make me… there’s still a long way to go and a lot of rubbing off on me left to do before I’m anywhere near as good as I need to be to have you in my life! But we will get there one day! We’ve somehow kept our little Margot alive for 11 weeks now… and every time she smiles at me it reminds me of how much I love you.. 6 more years till Santorini.. just imagine the memories we will have together by then. Remember what a fat bald man told us 4 years ago. “All You Need Is Love” ❤❤❤ Happy Anniversary baby. @lucybarnatt
