MMA world celebrates Thanksgiving with friends and family (and training!)

@danawhite, Instagram

MMA people celebrate Thanksgiving just like normal folks, though in some cases they’re getting in a full workout before stuffing their faces or having to pass on the annual meal entirely because they’ve got a fight coming up.

Whether it’s sharing pictures of friends and family, posting holiday memes, or letting everyone know that the grind never stops, there was a lot of activity on social media from your favorite festive fighters.

Get a glimpse at how the MMA world celebrated Thanksgiving this year:

#happythanksgiving I truly miss my girls. Spending #thanksgiving away from my wife @joanapradob and my daughters @vitoriabelfort @kyarabelfort is very painful. The words that I can find now is gratitude and I wish Instagram could bring me back so I can hug them now. I love you ❤️ Joana Vitória & Kyara

Im grateful for my health and family today. I am also grateful to @ufc and @danawhite for covering my surgery for my orbital floor repair. They also put this temporary tube in my eye connecting my tear duct to my nose. I am able to train and fight with this and my doctor said I would be clear in 7-8 weeks. Ill be back. Be grateful for what you have not what you think you need! Thats been the hardest thing for me to grasp recently! #TheObstacleIsTheWay #flash #thanksgiving #ufc #mma

Note to self: when choking your 40 year old brother unconscious don’t do it on the hardwood ‍♀️ Had him backpacked with an RNC that he defended valiantly for a full minute but I was able to outlast him and got the angle …then he pretty much passed out and slammed my face into the floor After decades of him kicking my ass it’s kinda nice to get mine now and then #thanksgiving

Thank you @dst_dennis for coming in on Thanksgiving to make sure I get a damn good workout in this AM! We both wanted to sleep in, but we have a fight coming up. No time to waste! Feeling especially grateful today to have such a great team behind me. You all are gonna see a faster, stronger, more explosive Lauren Murphy in my next bout! Make sure you tune in!! #UFC247 #HoustonTexas #MurphyVsLee #TurkeyDayLift
