Icon2 What do fighters eat before a big fight?

Seeing how having the energy to fight is the most important aspect of fighting, got me thinking what do fighters eat befor fights?

I know they all will have there own philosophy on which foods are best. So with that being said, what kind of food do fighters eat before a huge fight?
Moreover, how long before a fight do they eat?






This is what I'd eat. Yeah.

Bas advises eating oatmeal and drinking loads of water leading up to the fight.

That and KFC

Tons of sausage, french fries, bacon cheeseburgers, and of course plenty of grain alcohol the night before.

LOTs of kidney beans, cabbage, and laxatives in the hours before the fight.

A lot of punches during training... a lot of beating.. and in Frank Mir's case some harsh words from his wife.
