Take Vladimir Matyushenko, aka The Janitor, who's headlining the UFC's first-ever fight card in San Diego on August 1.

Today, Roman Matyushenko is a great martial artist with a promising MMA career ahead of him who just graded from Air Force boot camp.

To celebrate Father's Day, we created this album of pictures of fighters with their own fathers and with their children.
