The Weekly Grind: Eddie Alvarez holds pads for Shaq, McGregor gets float parade at Maltese Carnival

The life of a professional fighter isn’t all glitz and glamour.

As if getting punched, kicked, kneed, choksed and twisted into a pretzel on a regular basis isn’t enough, fighters attract a general wackiness that makes their lives, well...interesting.

To commemorate these day-to-day hardships, slip-ups, pranks, and more, we bring you, “The Weekly Grind.”

“T-Ferg Effect” It takes lots of Effort x Consistency, but i’m Confident I can do this. I came up with this Equation during my recovery from drastic knee surgery “Effort x Consistency = Confidence”-Tony Ferguson. I Used No Physical Therapy because my background is in sports medicine & I listen to my Doctors. I also felt I was spending too much time at physical therapy clinics & it took away from my family time (Shoutout to my old therapist @ocfightdocs they never want anything from me except to be better thanks fam Champ Shit Only). My own experience comes from over a handful of surgeries & recoveries. I accomplished my goal, but EVERYONE wanted my trade secrets on how I did it & left me w/ nothing except for scars to remind me how real it can be. You’re fucking Welcome, greedy bastards On a good note, I listened to my mind, body, spirit & kept the Faith & prayed daily, still do. My Wife, Son & Crew & Sponsors really helped me during the process to get better, so I say Amen & Thank You. I don’t recommend doing what I do, so don’t. It’s easy to point a finger when you should be looking in the mirror, but that’s not my cup of tea, so I won’t go there. Good thoughts,.. Excuse me for my language, manners. I Love you all & Keep it up Crew you are doin’ Amazing Time to get that mind right, keep training for life Sports Medicine #NationalAthleticTrainingMonth TonyFergusonXT.com #snapintuit w/ SnapJitsu™️ Man Shit.

Este vídeo não é exemplo técnico é apenas um exemplo de não desistir para sua cabeça é a realidade que passamos todos os dias. Ir ao limite ou perder para sua mente? Eu posso dizer que se eu aceitar um treino, luta, eu vou tentar até o fim. hoje treinei de manhã. a tarde fui me desafiar no 19.2 ‍♀️ sem descansar, tentando voltar ao ritmo dos treinos e com movimentos que eu odeio (meu score está nos story) Vou postar o treino de hoje de manhã aqui também. hoje a noite foi 4 x ▶️10 cal @assaultairbike ▶️10 ghd ▶️10 burpees over box 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 back squat (185) ‍♀️ ‍♀️ 19.2 Perder faz parte. Desistir não é opção. This video is not technical example is just an example of not giving up for my mind is the reality we spend every day. Go to the limit or lose to your mind? I can say that if I accept a workout, fight, I'll try to the limit. today I trained in the morning. In the afternoon I went to challenge myself in 19.2 ‍♀️ ‍♀️ ‍♀️ without resting, trying to get back to my shape and with movements that I hate (my score is in the story) I'll post the training here this morning too. tonight training ‍♀️ 4 x ▶ ️10 cal @assaultairbike ▶ ️10 ghd ▶ ️10 burpees over box 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 back squat (185) 19.2 Losing is part of the game.
