While on the mats you can find MacKenzie always asking questions and tinkering with ideas and technique philosophy, similar to how he is with food. He is a true student of the game and always willing to trade knowledge with training partners. When anyone has any questions on food they go directly to him. It has become shockingly common to see him cringing when someone says they only eat boiled chicken and steamed broccoli every day.
