Miesha Tate suggests Muffvember to support cancer research

Monday, November 11, 2013

Nearly 1,000,000 men are growing their mo in November to raise money for and to prompt conversation around the often ignored issue of prostate cancer. The aim is to positively change attitudes and habits men have about their health, to educate about the health risks they face, and to hopefully increase chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment. Movember is the largest non-government funder of prostate cancer research in the world.

Among the million men are a fair sampling of MMA fighters, in a sport that already boasts some remarkable mos. The 2012 gallery appears below.

Included in the gallery are some subtly crafted romoshops. See if you can spot which they are!

Lyoto Mochida

Rashad ‘Mo Suga’ Evans

Timothy Jerome “TJ” Grant

Ronda Rousey

Dana White

Anderson Silva

Not content to let the men play by themselves, UFC women’s bantamweight contender Miesha Tate offers an admirable suggestion, the muffstache.

If you can’t grow a mustache for Movember I found a solution! #VoteTate

Tate is on a roll, with the Muffvember suggestion, beating Ronda Rousey in the cover playoffs for EA Sports UFC game, and landing the cover of Fitness Gurls magazine, that named her the hottest female fighter in MMA.
