Vegan MMA

Postby Konstantin » Fri Dec 23, 2011 9:01 am

I've got a feeling that someone here is going to be able to answer these questions and save me a load of research. It's to do with facts and stuff for the vegan athletes list and I've got some MMA people I need to work out whether they're vegan, and whether they're up to the standard of getting on the list.

They are:
Mac Danzig - I know about, don't need more info.
Jake Shields - is he vegetarian or vegan
Ricardo Moreira – what standard is he?
Luke Cummo - Vegan? Good standard? I don't know about him.
Antonio McKee - Ditto.
Also I've found a guy called Eric Bartholomae, definite vegan, anyone know about him?

Thanks for any help.

Jake Shields just recently went vegan.

Nick Diaz is also vegan.

would also need to have first hand sources, like an interview or a bio to include, not just some forum etc chatter bout it.

if you guys who know more about mma could help in finding those that would help!

Luke Cummo no longer fights.

I'll try and gather some interviews for the rest of the fighters.

I'm not including Nick Diaz, he eats seafood. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcI6lwOhiFI go to 2:40.

I can't find anything to indicate the Ricardo Moreira is up to the standard we're looking for.

Luke Cummo - is he vegan? I'm not 100% convinced.

Aron Simpson seems to be very enthusiastic about being veggie, but I could only find a secondary reference to vegan.

Eric Bartholomae seems to be at the lower levels of the sport.

Jon Fitch posted a Youtube video including honey in Jan 2011. I've seen that he did 3 weeks vegan, but I get the impression he goes in and out of it.

I'm adding Jake Shield and Antonio McKee.

If anyone has any web references etc, disputing any of the above it would be great if I could see it - I'll change any decisions if they're wrong.

Ben Saunders is vegan I believe.

Aaron Simpson is vegetarian. Matt Wiman is vegetarian.

There are a growing number of fighters going vegan - I'm sure they are feeling the energy benefits of raw food diets.

Jake Shields just beat Akiyama. Didn't look too great in the process, though. He needs to go back to 185. He looked much stronger as a middleweight.
