With all the health hazards aside I was thinking about this earlier.
Are their any high profile fighters that actually use tobbaco products?
I could of sworn I once herd that Carwin dipped but it could have just been a rumor.

I don't know if Rampage still smokes or not, but I know he did.

Edit: not exactly high profile, but Matt Brown was dipping on TUF. I'm sure there are plenty of fighters that actually dip to cut weight.

I'm guessing there are quite a few or just a few.

Wouldn't be smart of them too if they do. You're already disadvantaging yourself before the fight starts.

Spitting to assist in the shedding of water. Personally, I'd rather push through a few extra miles on the treadmill, but people do it.

from chewing or smoking? I'm assuming your talking about smoking because being someone who chews, it doesn't take away anything but your gums and maybe some of your life

the first thing I chewed was beachnut, then went to kodiak, then Grizzly, and now since I'm trying to quiet it grizzly wintergreen pouches. I have to say I like them. Shit doesn't get in your teeth

Cody Mckenzie & Ryan Macgillivray chewed on their seasons of TUF. Also I remember that red haired jersey dude smoking on TUF, but you saw how far that got him.

I've herd nothing but good things about the Grizzly wintergreen pouch.
I'm too stuck on Camel Frost to give something else a try though.
I use them at work all the time.

The only high profile fighter I know who smokes/used to is Rampage. My friend saw him at a UK show (spectating) between fights when he went outside to smoke and ended up meeting him. He may have just been doing it socially whilst having a few beers though.

I usually see Lindland with a big chaw in his lip when cornering fights

Rampage was smoking and drinking when the UFC was in Minneapolis. Bruce Buffer looked like the sun smoked his ass. Dude was another shade of tan.

People used to say that Sakuraba was a pack a day smoker, but I don't know if that's true.

I wonder if it impeded his performance any

I know a few high-profile fighters who smoke weed, but none who smoke tobacco other than that Jeff Lentz guy from tuf. You simply can't smoke cigs and compete at the highest level, it just doesn't work. Also, I'm pretty sure "titties" from tuf chewed.

I find that very hard to believe

Edit: just looked it up and Saku was a very regular smoker who would only quit two weeks before a fight and allegedly smoked before his entrance against Rampage. Also, Rampage and Kimbo Slice are smokers.

Crap I forgot about that!
I remember my brother saying somethinga long time ago about some Japanese tabloids posting pictures of him in a bar or something along those lines.
