Rousimar Palhares is taking time off to care for his mother: "My friends, I love this sport, and I will never give up on a fight. Accept any challenge, is the mark of a true warrior. Unfortunately right now my family and I, we are facing a big fight, the fight for health, for life. My mother had 13 children, and devoted her life to educate and raised me, my brothers and sisters. At this point God tells me that I need to focus 100 of my life to take care of my mother. I'm doing everything possible, dedicating myself to the fullest in order to ensure that the person who put me in this world will be health again. It wouldn't be fair to John Fitch, to the fans that look up to me, and also with the WSOF if I go out there to performance myself without being in the best of my shape, technique and psychological conditions. It wouldn't be fair to the MMA, our sport always determines that the athlete should be at his best limit to compete, it is no room for a mistake. I understand that in the business field and as the capitalist world that we live in today that decision may not please everyone, but I'm a human being just like everyone else. As a good son it's time for me to take care of my mother, she needs me."

Tyson Griffin made this food up for Daniel Cormier: "Time to get serious with @dc_mma diet so carbs are getting measured to insure consistent results. I only measure when a weigh-in is important. Otherwise I just listen to my body and how I feel. If I'm tired one day. Eat more carbs the next. Too much energy and not leaning out in the mirror? Cut back on carbs but, don't eliminate them all together. People tend to be extreme but we need a balanced diet. Find out what works best for your daily activity and your body weight. Here is 1 cup of brown rice in each meal for about 45 grams of carbs. If it's not enough....I will add more next week. Experience from last camp leads me to believe this is perfect. Try to remember your past results and what did work and adjust from there. Don't jump to a completely different diet before trying to adjust portion sizes of your macro nutrients. #fff2 #fffsquared #foodforfuel #fightforfitness #fitness #health #healthymeals #chickencurry #healthyeats #brownrice #tgrated #nutritionalcoach #personalchef #foodie #food #mealprep"
