    Who knows? Who cares?

    It’s more impressive when someone can party, not be fully dedicated and still win.

    It's really hard to say what any of these guys do in their down time

    Conor certainly look like he gave it all in the beginning of his career

    I give props for the dudes that hold down a real job, and are able to compete against even beat guys that just rely on fight pay to live/pay bills.

    Not sure how many hours Stipe is putting down a week/month but he has a job and isnt relying UFC to cover his retirement or families insurance.

    Not sure why, but the first person to enter my mind was Shogun.

    Then Hunt.

    Nick has made it explicitly clear that he is more committed to marijuana than to MMA.

    Depends on your point of view. Most people work jobs they hate and die with so many regrets. Gaethje seems like the type who'd prefer CTE in the future over dying with regrets. But who knows.

    If that's what someone truly wants to do and dedicate all their being to it, more power to them. Everyone finds fullfilment in different things in life. MMA isn't the safest job but to each their own.

    You might think it’s a joke but some people really need marijuana to help treat certain conditions such as anxiety, ADHD, and other medical conditions.
