I've always used arm-wrestling to settle disputes (e.g., to determine who gets the last Tofutti Cutie), so I know from experience that vegans excel at this sport. Just ask professional arm-wrestler Rob Bigwood. Ranked among the top 20 arm-wrestlers in the U.S., this big-time PETA supporter and animal rights advocate says that he feels "stronger and healthier than ever" since going vegan a year and a half ago. Check out this "tower of plant-protein power" in all his awesome arm-pinning glory:

The other day, I told you about vegetarian extreme fighter Jake Shields. You know what else is extreme? Professional arm-wrestling!
Specifically, vegan professional arm-wrestler Rob Bigwood is pretty awesome.
He had a special sponsor for this weekend's Big Apple Grapple—yes, us! And, we have to say, we're pretty proud—Rob took second place on both arms in his class! Check out the video.
Look at those guns! More importantly, look at the shirt! Way to represent, Rob; you've done animals proud!
