I actually am a big fan of Conor and think his showmanship and athleticism is a wicked combination (even though fighting isn't usually my vibe id rather it in a ring then on the streets in an entertaining rather than violent form, usually the good sports always hug it out at the end) BUT with that being said huge congratulations to Nate Diaz VEGAN ufc fighter and now champion! Plant based people can be just as strong as carnivores and I am super stoked to see such a fine example! Thank you for representing us and the "green community" so well ND! (And if u got any recipes pass em on)
