UFC Fighter Goes Vegan, Snags 15th Career Win

After a big win, Abel Trujillo told the crowd, “Love is the movement—go vegan.”

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Abel Trujillo just made headlines for crediting his 15th career win to his plant-based diet. The 32-year old lightweight defeated Jordan Rinaldi Sunday in a unanimous decision and said the “clean energy and better clarity” afforded to him by a vegan lifestyle are to thank for his win. “Let’s stop eating innocent animals!” Trujillo said in a tweet. “Save our planet Mother Earth, save the animals, save yourself! You will feel better mind body & spirit!” The news on Trujillo follows the much-publicized defeat of UFC fan favorite Conor McGregor by vegan Nate Diaz earlier this year in March, and heavyweight fighter Mark Hunt declaring his veganism late last year after watching undercover factory farming footage.
