(With the money he picked up from UFC 82, Spider would be able to buy 260,000 items from the dollar menu.)
TheMMADigest recently posted an impressive list of day-jobs held by notable mixed martial artists. Some of them are part of the fighters’ personal mythologies — we all know that Rich Franklin was a high school teacher, Clay Guida was a carpenter, Mirko Cro Cop was some sort of Croatian cop, and Houston Alexander still works as a hip-hop DJ. Others are a little more suprising. Did you know…
…Luke Cummo delivered pizzas, drove a cab, and tested video games?
…Leonard Garcia was an assistant manager at Frito-Lay?
…Karo Parisyan was a stuntman?
…Mauricio Rua was a model?
…Diego Sanchez worked at UPS?
…Anderson Silva worked at McDonald’s?
The list also says that Wanderlei Silva used to work in a bar, but judging from this picture, he also spent time as a live-in nanny, and was beloved by the children for his delicious homemade empanadas.
Did one of your favorite fighters pay the bills through busking, dog-sitting, or providing personal transportation? Let us know in the comments section…
