Bad news, DZ is going to have to come off the list. He's 'cheating' by eating fish twice a week.

Sorry, wish I could find a better source, but apparently this transition was recent.

Nascar driver Andy Lally and TRG Motorsports driver Spencer Pumpelly. Don't know anything about them but they seem to fit on the list.

I'm not sure if it's because there's more vegans about, more veganism in sport, or just we're finding them better.

I think a good next step would be to create catagory 4 (Fighters) as Skill is getting very big now.

Ronda Rousey is not vegan so I need to take her off:

http://www.mmaplayground.com/forums/topic49792-1.html

MMAPG: You were a vegan at the time of the Olympics in 2008 and many fighters these days are. Are you still vegan? Do you have any guilty pleasures when you're not on a strict diet preparing for a fight?

ROUSEY: I was vegan for 8 months after the Beijing games. Unfortunately, I was working 2-3 bartending jobs at once during that time and didn't have many options in the vegan genre besides Jameson Whiskey and sweet potato fries. After 8 months of that highly nutritious diet, I caught Bronchitis and had a lot of trouble getting healthy. I returned to my old diet and made a promise to myself to give veganism another try after I was done competing and do it right this time.

Thanks Wannalift, but the Bryan Danielson's already there, section 3. But keep all the suggestions coming.

I should have specified it was an update for him. Winning one of the championships takes his status much higher, at least in terms of a pro wrestler :D
