MMA on Instagram: Two Spiders, a Barista and So Much Mark Hunt

Welcome to another week in MMA on Instagram! MMA stalker Katie Winter has collected the best pics that MMA fighters and personalities were sharing this week and they're all right here for your viewing pleasure.

Anton Tabuena

Happy Friday! We've been blessed this week because Mark Hunt dropped more videos on us than ever before (even if one video features a creepy spider). But don't worry because the creepy spider is happily offset by our other favorite "Spider" strolling around the room all on his own. And, we've definitely received a strong introduction to UFC newbie and this weekend's co-main-eventer, Patrick Cummins. There are cats again (!), and dogs, and lots of other fun stuff. Follow me on Instagram and enjoy the pics!
