Re: B9 MMA Thread

10th planet guys rub me the wrong way with the cult following and the fact that all their moves have stupid names like "crackhead control" and "The vaporizer". Some of the techniques work well, but it didn't exactly revolutionize jiujitsu.

Re: POWERLIFTING - Steroids, weights, and making fun of the

It's very possible to be vegan and lift. I was vegan for 8 years, right when I started powerlifting, and I was able to get stronger. I started eating meat eventually, but as long as you keep your calorie intake up with shit like beans and rice you'll be fine.
