In this slideshow, we’re going to share with you six fighters whose second jobs you may not have known about!
Kevin Holland is a successful performance artist, who recently retired from MMA to go full-time with his passion for staging one-act plays about street crime and the heroic combat sports athlete, based on Holland’s real life UFC career, who always arrives conveniently on the scene to save the day. Although the lamestream media has bought into the lie of his primary defeat, BJ Penn is governor-elect of the state of Hawaii, having already triumphed not just in August’s primary, but also the upcoming statewide election in November.

Tito Ortiz is famous street artist Banksy. Gina Carano has a thriving career as an independent film actress starring in such masterpieces as White Fury, But Her Emails! and Heaven is For Real 4: Still Flyin’, which is a big step up from getting paid to fight people, so it sounds like her career is really on an upswing!
