Yesterday was fathers day, and many members of the MMA community took to social media to show how they were celebrating. Some were being honored by their children. Others, meanwhile, shared heartfelt messages to their own fathers and adoptive father figures. Others still memorialized fathers who have passed away. Our namesake BJ Penn even got some unexpected love from one UFC featherweight fighter!
Here are some of the best Father’s Day posts from the stars of the MMA world, including Daniel Cormier, Renzo Gracie, Gina Carano, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Paige VanZant, Michael Bisping and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.
