ONE Championship heavyweight world champion Brandon Vera has done most of his talking in the cage with his vicious striking game.

However, the former UFC fighter who is now the king of the One Championship heavyweight division has gone viral on the Internet with a touching video saving a sea turtle.

The loveable sea creature in Vera’s video was seen in a terrible condition, trapped in a fishing net and plastic rubbish. Vera was able to cut off the net and plastic from the turtle and had a very strong message that came along with his Facebook video.

“*Disclaimer Cussing and other shit.

Man a huge problem in Tagkawayan, Quezon, and Off the cost of St Rita island……..is that there is “Dynamite Fishing”……

I don’t know if they’re locals of/from other islands/provinces but we should be trying to find out.

No matter how you look at it, whomever they are, are just being fucking lazy…. Alam Ko. Fishing is hard Ass work, but you to say “fuck you mundo” “fuck you to our waters” “fuck you to our environment” fuck you other people”…… man you have nerve. Ma kapal ang mukha mo.

I’d like to request to my fans to spread this and let it be know… this shit needs to end. Punishment should be severe, I’ll dish it out…

Let’s figure something out… I’m no activist, or environmentalist, but This turtle woulda been fucked….

Thank you for helping Nenja…!!! ☺️👍🏾💪🏾💜”

Brandon Vera is currently riding a three-fight winning streak in One Championship and it seems he is taking on a new fight against those “Dynamite Fishing” and taking a stand to help make things right for the earth.

Help to spread awareness with this video from “The Truth” and get his message out!
