Happy Valentine's Day! Here is more MMA on Instagram including cats (!!!), a few celebrities (and some MMA celebrities), an apology pic, lots of food, and a bunch of miscellaneous fun. Jon Jones has started his training camp and it seems he has also started a much more disciplined regimen for posting pictures and videos to IG. This is good because most of them feature his truly fabulous Savannah Cat. Mark Hunt was also very active with videos this week so be sure to take a few seconds for those. Follow me on Instagram and enjoy the pics!
