Aaron Simpson Defends Arian Foster’s Veganism

Vegan mixed martial arts fighter Aaron Simpson encourages fellow athlete Arian Foster.

NFL player Arian Foster has been recently criticized by the public for his decision to adopt a plant-based diet. Critics and football fans have taken to Twitter to express worry that his performance will suffer due to his newfound veganism. In response, mixed martial arts fighter Aaron Simpson tweeted, “Proud of you @ArianFoster … The macho world of meat eaters won’t sway the compassionate mind of an athlete.” Simpson, a proud vegan, made the decision to cut meat out of his diet three years ago, and says that he feels incredibly strong because of it. Many mixed martial arts athletes are committed to vegetarian and vegan diets such as Jon Fitch, Nick and Nate Diaz, Jake Shields, and Mac Danzig.
