He also said that he does a lot of his training fasted and eats afterward. Not exactly the same as he seems to just have an eating window each day, but still interesting, especially with his fasted training.
This sets off red flags. Was he selling a supplement or diet book or something? If he's doing serious MMA training for a competition, I doubt he's doing it fasted. In other words, he was probably not explaining himself 100% accurately. There are several other things to point out. He has elite genetics, training is his job, and he has meals prepared for him. I don't know about drug use, but that could also be a factor.
