    We have all seen them on Instagram and Facebook- so and so fighter posts a pic of them and members of their fight team after a training session. Do you think this serves a secondary purpose of like a letting their opponent for their next fight know that they are training hard etc?

    Chuck had Franklin legit concerned from a pic like that. We all know how that ended lol but still…

    I think fighters all expect their opponents to be training hard from the start. It's more about recording memories, camaraderie, and keeping fans updated.

    Nothing like a bunch of half naked sweaty men embracing and posing for pictures.

    Anyone “shook” from something so dumb shouldn’t be fighting in a cage for a living.
