Welcome to the wacky world of MMA.
The whole world is busy with the FIFA Football World Cup and MMA didn’t have a major event over the past weekend, but it is Father’s day and MMA fighters were in unison to celebrate The Man.
Father’s Day Special
It is startling how similar Barboza Jr. looks to his Senior.
Frankie Edgar might have tucked in early, but he doesn’t forget to pay his tributes.
‘Pantera’ Yair Rodriguez posted a cute photo of his parents to show his appreciation.
Jessica Eye posted a strong message for her followers to rise above hate and love no matter what. Kudos to her.
Father’s Day …. Our relationship was a constant battle that ended tragically. I don’t talk about my childhood or early adult years and how we ended but it’s always my motivation. it’s chapter most couldn’t handle to live or believe. You raised me the best you could and no matter how fucked up it got you love me even if you expressed it wrong. I am sorry life treated you bad that you reflected it to me in so many different forms of abuse. Id be a fool to hate you or hold on to nonsense I can’t Change or take back. I think about you always and it’s gonna continues to make me great. Your demanding voice and strong ways are the best qualities I gained from you. Sometimes I wish I could have been your friend not your daughter because you could be really great at times . BUT thank you for lacing me with game and spunk Randy Eye this is my week and watch me take what’s rightfully mine in life 😈. #EYEbelieve #evil #rip #champion #winner #fathersday #braincancer #gbm #meanmotherfucker
Tecia Torres spent Father’s day with her better half and her Father-in-Law, and she seems to have had a jolly good time.

Happy Fathers Day Pops and to all the fathers out there!! . . . Not many people live the life I live and no all get to have a father in their life. I was blessed to live this life and I get to do it with the best father the Lord could've given to me. From the childhood lessons to the adult lessons hes still instilling in me. Theres no other father I'd want to call my Dad. From hunting, fishing, motorycle riding, work, and road trip partners. I know at any point in time I can always count on my Pops to be down to ride. Because I am my father's son, and no matter how irritated he makes me or how country he can. I'm always proud to claim him as my Father. . . . #happyfathersday #mydad #pops #hunting #partners #roaddog
