When I was in college, I drank a bottle of my own urine for a $5 Barnes and Nobles Gift card, three cans of Natural Light and half of a meatball sub because I was a drunk idiot. It sort of tasted like a warm Powerade. There was also this hot chick that I thought would be impressed by my urine drinking abilities, she never really talked to me again. It’s cool, she’s pregnant now by some dude that’s in prison for trafficking drugs from Mexico to America, so in the end, I think I won.
Lyoto Machida drinks his liquid waste under the guise of ‘urine therapy,’ a process that’s supposed to replenish lost minerals in the body by recycling one’s own fluid. My counter argument to that is if we need these ‘lost minerals,’ then why is the body removing them through waste? Like they say, another man’s junk is the same man’s treasure if consumed through urine. Actually, that’s not how it goes. Nothing should go like that in fact.
Check out this Whoa! TV interview in which Lyoto Machida states that he’s taking it easy on the urine drinking leading up to this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 30. HT to Ariel Helwani.
