    Re: correct E.?

    A few sentences from Google:

    "But some players, even tough ones prone to fighting, like Brendan Shanahan, believe a good debate is in order."

    "Every dog, especially one who's prone to fighting, should be obedience trained."

    Second set of examples:

    "
    The merely brave man is prone to fight recklessly; and he who fights recklessly, without any perception of what is expedient, must be condemned."

    (from the Art of War this one!)

    "
    Parents, we're told, push their children around, and it makes perfect sense that adolescents in particular are prone to fight back."

    So unless someone could provide a grammatical rule, they both forms seem to be correct.
