The Weekly Grind: UFC 200 posters, Sage Northcutt goes to Canada, the ‘Stockton’ slap

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

As if getting punched, kicked, kneed, choked 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.” 

Enjoy.

The decision to not fight on April 23rd was one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make. I’ve been scheduled to fight 18 times and I have made that walk every time. I want to apologize to Jon Jones, Lorenzo Fertitta, Dana White and all of the UFC fans for not being able to defend my title. This truly saddens me, but as with everything else in life, it goes on. The recovery should not take very long and I can’t wait to compete and defend my title again. For all the fans, thanks for your support, I appreciate each and every one of you. DC

It is with sadness that I have to announce my retirement from MMA and the @ufc . I have had a rough 2015 with bad results and lost my motivation for the sport and the training. The decision maker in this is my last injury I examined today where I need to have a surgery and will be away from training for more than a year. It’s more sad to leave the sport now while it looks pretty easy to get interim belts especially since I never got the chance to get a real belt But life ain’t over, I will continue take pretty boy pictures for @carlings_official which I enjoy. @badboybrands who just launched my signature t-shirt said, Alex, if you become a real “bad boy” like Jon, we will sign you up for life, that may be an option, work for some guys. @unibetsverige have been with me from the beginning of my career, now I might get the chance to spend some more time with @glenn_hysen and give him some more low kicks after my injury. @gymgrossisten thank God that not only full-time athletes can drink your BCAA mango flavor, I will still need it to keep my energy up while I am walking with my crutches for the next 9 months. For the next 3 months I will stay out of contact while I take care of my injury, I will have my morning coffee with the love of my life, “General Snus” . I alway said, once I am finished with fighting I will move away from Stockholm and enjoy farmer life, that’s what I will do. Quality time with my dogs and cows far away from town. So for now, thank you all for your support my friends. Can’t tell you how much it has meant for me and kept my going. Good luck to all my teammates and thank you for all your help. And finally D.C, one part of me always wanted you to beat the shit out of Jon because you are a great role model as a Champion, but one part of my wanted you to lose, so I could come and get my rematch against Jones later when I deserve it. But now that I am out of this game, give him those uppercuts that you gave me, they really hurt. Much love, Alex #teammauler #carlingsmauler #carlings #iamlajan #badboyclothing #unibet #gymgrossisten
