Social media is part of life in the fight game for most fighters. Many of them turn to Instagram to keep their fans and followers informed and entertained since (for now) its reputation is less vitriolic than some of its contemporaries.
Ahead of his featherweight tournament semifinal fight against A.J. McKee (16-0 MMA, 16-0 BMMA), check out some of the most popular Instagram posts from former bantamweight champion Darrion Caldwell (14-3 MMA, 11-2 BMMA) over the past year.
Caldwell and McKee headline Bellator 253, which takes place Thursday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The main card airs on CBS Sports Network/DAZN following prelims on MMA Junkie.
