Heavyweight legend Mark Hunt appears to be switching over to a vegan diet after watching an animal cruelty video on Facebook.

The ‘Super Samoan’ reposted the video from Last Chance for Animals, which depicts the cruel inner workings of the fourth largest pig farm in the United States. Hunt captioned the video, “I’m going vegan, hate this.”

Though it has yet to be confirmed if the combat sports athlete is indeed converting to a vegan lifestyle, he wouldn’t be the first athlete nor the first MMA fighter to adopt the diet.Former UFC lightweight contender, Mac Danzig, switched to a plant-based diet back in 2004 and has credited the diet with putting him in the best shape of his life. Danzig even appeared on the acclaimed “Forks Over Knives” documentary. David Carter, a 300-pound NFL defensive lineman with the Chicago Bears, says he’s leaner and faster now since he went vegan last year. Then, of course, there’s Mike Tyson, a former adopter of veganism, who said red meat made him “crazy.” 

We hope that Mark will definitely commit to his caption and try out a vegan diet. We are sure he will love the results.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
