Welcome to another week of MMA on Instagram! I honestly could have used a few more celebrity pics this week. To make up for that, I have included a special section just for Matt Roth's dog (and my favorite IG pet other than Katie-dog), Remy Martin Roth, because I have been neglecting her and I don't want her to hate me. There is also a special Patrick Cote section, which some of you will probably appreciate more than others, and lots & lots of the usual stuff. Thanks to the BE readers and writers who provided me with food pics this week, as well - keep 'em coming! Follow me on Instagram and enjoy the pics!
