Take Vladimir Matyushenko, aka The Janitor, who's headlining the UFC's first-ever fight card in San Diego on August 1. Just 21 years old when his son was born, he raised the boy himself -- all of their extended family still lives in Belarus. 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.
