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 Fathers Day Pops and to all the fathers out there!! . . . Not many people live the life I live and no all get to have a father in their life. I was blessed to live this life and I get to do it with the best father the Lord could've given to me. From the childhood lessons to the adult lessons hes still instilling in me. Theres no other father I'd want to call my Dad. From hunting, fishing, motorycle riding, work, and road trip partners. I know at any point in time I can always count on my Pops to be down to ride. Because I am my father's son, and no matter how irritated he makes me or how country he can. I'm always proud to claim him as my Father. . . . #happyfathersday #mydad #pops #hunting #partners #roaddog
Happy Father’s Day to the man that never missed a fight. 15 professional fights in total. I know it was never an easy task to sit back and watch me fight, but thank you for allowing me to fulfill my dream! Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there working to allow their kids to fulfill their dreams! #HappyFathersDay #Believe2Believe
Happy father day to two of the greatest men I know. My father @doug.koch.503 and my brother @keonikoch . Both these men are my hero’s and have raised great kids. It seems like great parents are getting harder and harder to come by, but both these men set the bar high. I’m damn proud to be a koch and wouldn’t have it any other way happy fathers day to all the great fathers out there! #fathersday #teamkoch
“A father has to be a provider, a teacher, a role model, but most importantly, a distant authority figure who can never be pleased. Otherwise, how will children ever understand the concept of God?” Happy Father’s Day to all.... ❤️ “Um pai tem que ser um provedor, um professor, um modelo, mas o mais importante, uma figura de autoridade distante que nunca pode ser satisfeita. Caso contrário, como as crianças entenderão o conceito de Deus?” Feliz dia dos pais a todos... ❤️
“We accept the love that we believe we deserve.... Thank you old man for teaching me so well what unconditional love was, I promise you I will pass that knowledge to everyone that comes after us... Since only real real love is the tool to forge a strong generation of strong men... I love you my father... “Nós aceitamos o amor que nós acreditamos que merecemos.... Obrigado meu velho por me ensinar tão bem o que era o amor incondicional, eu prometo a você que passarei esse conhecimento para todos que vierem depois de nós... Já que apenas o verdadeiro amor é a ferramenta para forjar uma futura geração de homens decididos e fortes... Te amo meu pai...
Happy Father’s Day to my sweet Daddy up in heaven and to my amazing Step-Father Shawn. I’m a lucky girl to be blessed with so much love and support all my life, and to have such special relationships with both. Swipe to see some of my favorite pictures of each!! #happyfathersday #hillbillydad #stepfather #love
