The Diaz bros love to tell everyone they’re vegan, and how much better of fighters they are because of their diet, but they haven’t won anything in the UFC. Daniel Cormier eats Popeye’s Chicken, and he’s an undefeated threat in two weight divisions. Think about that for a minute, then get back to me. I think that’s some pretty sound science.
The UFC has a new web series called Embedded, probably because it will be embedded on MMA/Men’s lifestyle sites such as this one. It follows around the two main event fighters of the upcoming UFC show, with some Dana White thrown in for good measure. It’s pretty damn great. I like it a lot. This week has been following Dan Henderson and Daniel Cormier. The two Dans have plenty of respect for each other, but Hendo knows he’s a massive underdog, so he does what he can to get into Cormier’s head. Like deliver 48 pieces of golden chicken to his workout room. Mmmm.
And did I see that right? After a workout Hendo was around 196? Damn.
