Yeah, but they're not wining about killing animals.
Plus it's vegans that are the real idiots. I doubt any mma fighter could survived on a vegan diet.
There you go. You wanted my awesome opinion. Are you an idiot vegan?
And your examples of vegetarian fighters, while good fighters, have never even approached the career success of Matt Hughes. Just saying.
Nope just vegetarian, for the last year. I think being vegan is dumb too, no way to get enough protein naturally without milk, cheese, yogurt etc. and eggs, and it makes zero sense ethically or nutritionally.
I'm not whining about killing animals either, read back my last few posts to see what I'm about. Been arguing against the whining and pointless Hughes hate for the most part.
Still, any one of the fighters I mentioned could wipe the floor with Hughes, he just came at an earlier less evolved stage of MMA. Not to belittle his accomplishments, but these guys aren't scrubs by any means.
Not to mention there's plenty of athletes who achieved far more than Hughes while being vegetarian. http://www.treehugger.com/slideshows...dont-eat-meat/
Carl Lewis, probably the greatest runner and pure athlete that ever lived (who wasn't obviously on steroids) went full blown vegan a bit before his career best performance. Plenty of others too, none to be laughed at.
I know how you feel because I've done my share of laughing at ***** vegetarians and chuckled to myself on puns like People For the Eating of Tasty Animals, but the whole meat to be strong thing is all a load of propaganda crock. I have far more endurance now that I ever had on meat, and am even better built.
It's more about your workouts and overall nutrition, not just protein which people think is some kind of magic bullet and in any case you can get through literally thousands of foods. I have people around me that eat nothing but red meat all day long and are 5 foot tall scrawny pipsqueaks or fat out of shape farts.
