It’s the third Sunday of June, and you know what that means: it’s Father’s Day! If you haven’t done it already, we recommend you jump off the internet and call your dad right now and tell him you love him.

For those whose fathers have passed or aren’t around for whatever reason, a bit of contemplation will do. And there’s nothing that says you can’t show some appreciation for the father figures in your life. And then there’s you dads with kids - enjoy your day and the love that flows from your children’s hearts.

MMA fighters did all of the above over the course of the day, taking to social media to share photos, memories, and heartfelt messages to their dads. Take a look!

Happy Father’s Day @barboza9857 ❤️
