On September 17th, when
the Octagon against seasoned lightweight veteran Spencer Fisher as part
of the UFC 78 Validation fight card, his professional destiny will be
at stake. Win and the newly 8-0-0 fighter will have established himself
as a top contender for the UFC Lightweight Title. Lose, and he'll have
to pick up the pieces and start building momentum all over again. The
pivotal nature of this fight hasn't been lost on Frank Edgar. Indeed,
shaped by a newly focused and intense full-time training regimen and
fueled by his favorite
ProSource sports supplements
, Frank Edgar is in the best shape of his life.
In preparation for the next big step in his UFC career, this Saturday
night at the new Prudential Center in Newark NJ, Edgar has taken a
break from his part-time plumbing job and devoted himself full-time to
his main passion, training and fighting in different venues across the
nation. "I'm constantly seeking out different workout partners," Edgar
says. "You have to do that in order to keep up with everybody else,

100% pure whey isolate like ProSource NytroWhey
. No fat, no excess carbs. Also I like to use
With my extended, high-intensity training regimen, I have to prevent
muscle breakdown and deterioration as much as possible, and
ProSource Glutamine is the best anti-catabolic you can buy.
To sustain the grueling workout regimen that is commonplace immediately
prior to a scheduled fight, the 155-pound lightweight has to eat
consistently throughout the day, while adhering to the highest
nutritional standards. That's where another key supplement comes into
Supreme Protein bars
work for me. They've got just six net carbs per bar, and their protein
profile is first rate. More high-quality whey isolate than any other
bar out there and they're a delicious gourmet snack. I eat two or three
a day, so I'm never tempted to eat junk when I'm training."
Does the up-and-coming contender care to make any predictions about Saturday's UFC fight?
"It's going to be a great fight. I'm going to back in New Jersey," the
Toms River-based fighter says. "I'm going to have a home crowd behind
me and a terrific competitor in the Octagon with me. Expect the sparks
