i'm siked that mac is back to lightweight. probably the toughest division.
i don't know much about bocek but from what i heard he doesn't seem to be to great.

great that he is back to lightweight. that is really the division he wanted to compete at.
WAR DANZIG!

also there is a (life long) vegetarian fighter, Jake Shields, up for a welterweight title shot in Elite XC on March 29th.

" Having won nine fights in a row, Shields (20-4-1) has risen to eighth in the Sherdog.com welterweight rankings... Shields is regarded as the top 170-pound fighter not signed to a UFC contract..."

Awesome!

Mac rules and I love hearing about other fighters on a plant-based diet too!

Does anyone know much about Ricardo Moreira? He's in our profiles section and is a vegan pro fighter.

i stumbled upon Moreiras' myspace like a year ago or something. too bad it's almost impossible to watch kotc fights in sweden :(
only reason i knew about danzig before TUF was because of Peta so it's good that you "promote" Moreira on the site. maybe soon he'll do a peta add to.

Lookin forward to it but what I really want to see is George move down to LW with Danzig so that we can see the TUF 6 finale that never was. I think George could make the cut fairly easily, as he doesn't seem like a big WW at all.

Nice, I live in Montreal so I'll try to see this, I never went to that kind of event and I'm getting interested more and more fighting sports. Also that night George St-Pierre (also from montreal!)'s revenge against Serra. And Mac Danzig, such a great fighter ! vegan , photographer... I'll definetly try to be there if it's not already sold out, the Bell Centre is huge, it must suck to be in the last rows and see 2 tiny points fighting.

I agree with you, lightweight is the most exciting division because those guys can move, they're fast and spectacular.

mark bocek will be a tough opponent, his only loss is frank edgar(who is kind of a badass). I hope mac comes through and looks like the maniac he is, his exposure from this could be huge.

FYI: Mac Danzig is featured in the April issue of Fight! Magazine. I'm still trying to track down a copy, so I don't know if his diet is discussed in the article, but I'm thinking it probably is.

Here is a brand new article published on UFC.com about Mac. His vegan diet is a topic discussed in the article. Don't forget the fight is this Saturday!
