The front page of the Ultimate fighting Championship (UFC) website recently featured a post about their “Vicious Vegetarian” fighters.

In that group is ultimate fighter Mac Danzig, who recently did a spot for PETA where he poses with his fighting gloves. The 31-year-old went vegetarian after seeing pigs sent to a slaughterhouse, and now he’s not only fighting in the ring but fighting for animal rights as well.

“Animals on factory farms and in slaughterhouses don’t have a fighting chance,” Danzig says in the PETA ad. “I don’t eat animals because I don’t want to contribute to their suffering— it’s that simple. Do yourself a favor, do the planet a favor, and help end animal abuse— go vegetarian. I am a fighter in the best shape of my life.”

As one of the leading mixed martial artists and the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 6 TV show, Danzig is certainly proving that veg athletes have the upper hand.
