New, comments

With social distancing policies, business closures, and cancelled events, fighters are having to get a little bit creative with their free time.

With the UFC putting events on hold for the next couple weeks, businesses closing down, and sweeping guidelines in place on social distancing fighters are suddenly finding themselves with more unaccustomed free time than normal. And while many are still finding ways to train (or just going to the gym as usual) others are getting a little more creative in their attempts to fill the void in their schedules.

Jon Jones and Roxanne Modafferi are taking their survival preparedness seriously with some elite target practice.

While fighters like Darren Till and Rose Namajunas are indulging in one last binge before the end of the world hits.

Frankie Edgar and Gerald Meerschaert are just a couple of the fighters getting more in touch with their artistic temperaments during self-isolation.

For Dominick Cruz and Dominick Reyes this time is all about spending some quality time with those most important to us... dogs.

Or in Omari Akhmedov’s case, a horse.

For Daniel Cormier, Weili Zhang, and Tony Ferguson, this is just the right time to put a little more creativity in their fitness routines.

While Brandon Moreno and Jared Gordon are both out here delivering some much needed PSAs.

And of course, for Stipe Miocic, it’s just another work week.
