Another UFC fighter credits veganism for the win

Nate Diaz isn’t the only vegan in the ring.

MSN shared a clip from Sunday’s UFC 88, in which 32 year-old Abel Trujillo took to the mic following his 15th win. In that brief and fleeting winners interview, he used his airtime to shout “love is the movement, go vegan, do your sadhana with kundalini yoga.” 

The ring announcer went on to probe Trujillo about his diet, that he credits with taking the win. “I feel good. I’ve got more clean energy and better clarity,” he said. Affectionately (and only slightly ironically) nicknamed Killa Trujillo, the athlete is proud to share his views outside of the ring through his social media platforms, too.

Trujillo enjoys telling his audience about the organic, vegan food his uses to fuel his body, like oatmeal, fruit and almond milk for breakfast. As the MSN video highlights, he can also be found tweeting; “let’s stop eating innocent animals! Save our planet Mother Earth, save the animals, and yourself! You will feel better, mind, body & spirit!” It’s great to see this athlete isn’t just encouraging other fighters to take up the diet, but everyone to fight for love, instead.

    Couple of points. Nate Diaz isn’t technically a vegan. Alex Caceres and Mac Danzig are and great examples of Vegans in MMA. Abel Trujillo has plead guilty twice to domestic violence so please don’t try making him into a posterboy as that’ll bite in the arse later

    I liked his message. Go Vegan

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Bodily Autonomy Beyond Ourselves

To put it in its simplest form, the bodies of other animals, human or non-human, do not belong to us.
