More animal-friendly fighters

This is just a quick note on some animal-friendliness at Saturday night’s UFC event. First, Matt Wiman, who lost a close & controversial decision to Dennis Siver, had the Meet Your Meat and Food Inc websites on his shorts.

UFC fighter Jon Fitch’s diet

Jon Fitch is the #2 welterweight MMA fighter in the world in pretty much everyone’s book. (Georges St-Pierre, the consensus #1, is the only fighter to defeat Fitch in the UFC.) He’s known for a grinding fighting style, overpowering and outworking his opponents. Here’s a video he recently released showing what he eats in a

Fun shouldn’t come at the expense of suffering

I used to play baseball. Was never very good, but it was fun to be able to go out and toss the ball around and be outside in the sun with friends. But then I became vegetarian (for ethical reasons) and couldn’t bear the thought of the suffering contained in my baseball glove. I don’t
