I've got problems with both of my knees mainly due to 11 years doing Muay Thai (but I was also a floorlayer for 5 years so that didn't help).
In my last fight I popped my shoulder out because I over extended on a hook, this still troubles me every now and then, usually after going from skipping straight into press/push ups.
Blocking/checking a kick on the ankle is not nice either, I blocked high because it looked like a body kick coming in but the cheeky shit switched halfway and brought it into a low kick, I didn't react in time meaning I couldn't put weight on my leg for the next 3 or 4 days.
I've also had tonnes of stupid little injuries which never get chance to heal unless you take a few weeks out of training but anybody that trains very regularly will know about that. Things such as sore shins, bruised ribs, lumps and bumps everywhere but hey we're in contact sports and these injuries are 100% going to happen. Most of the time I just train through injuries, I'm still training at the minute with both of the damaged knees, my specialist is suspecting MCL,ACL or Meniscus tears to one or both knees and I also have imflammation in my cartilage at the moment.
The worst injury I have had, in regards to pain, which is related to the sports and also work is Tenosinovitus and Tendonitus in my right wrist, trying to train through that was hard work and extremely painful because I could barely punch or even do press/push up's, for a while I just resorted to switching to a southpaw stance and working on my left hand.
All of these are MT related as I haven't competed in MMA yet, not going to bother until I'm confident in my BJJ.
