    So it must be hard to explain to your kid why you lost and why you're fighting. I wonder what these guys tell their kids after a bad loss or even a losing streak in general.

    "Hey kiddo, we need money so i get bashed up for you" or "i think it's fun to hit people and get hit back. it's like a fun chess game" or "this is the only way i can legally touch a man like that and i like to touch men like that?"

    It must be a tough conversation. Stuff like that could make or break a family and even cause a fighter enough mental grief to not be training good or fighting good.

    Most mma fighters:
    "Hey son, i got my ass whooped today. It might happen again".

    Jon jones and khabib:

    "Of course i won again, picograms baby"

    "Yes, i smesh again, alhamdulilla"

    Their kids probably knows their dads can beat 95% of the population and is immune to getting bullied at school.

    That should make them proud.
