I'm not an MMA fan, but liked this:<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">But in his training for the Penn fight, Fitch has come full circle. The top welterweight has joined a growing number of MMA stars who have committed to a vegetarian diet.<br>
The list includes the next challenger for Georges St. Pierres welterweight title, Jake Shields, Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz, and two former Ultimate Fighter winners, Nate Diaz and Mac Danzig.</div>

That's great! We need to show that to the "Hegans" who are afraid of looking unmanly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I think it's really awesome, although I really don't know much about MMA, wrestling and such. (It's not very popular around here.) But I agree, they make good cases for those Hegans <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
Only this bit confused me:<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Neither fighter is vegan. Fitch said during his Penn camp he has been eating fish about once a week, although he went three straight weeks at one point with no animal products. Besides his milk-based protein powder, Shields regularly eats eggs.</div>
</div>

Sooo... vegetarians eat fish, vegans don't? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":huh:">

Mentioned this to a friend who was being a rude arsehole once. They were saying vegans were wimpy and effeminate. His reply to this was 'yea, but those guys are all macho *******s.' Some you just can't win.

I didn't know what MMA was until I looked it up. I guess this proves that a vegetarian diet doesn't make somebody smarter.
