An outraged Brandon Vera was caught on video as he was trying to release a poor turtle caught in net and plastic bags along the coast of Quezon.

The champion mixed martial artist could not help but utter cuss words in disappointment over the reckless littering in the ocean, causing damage to aquatic wildlife.


“F*** you guys who throw trash everywhere! F*** you guys who litter this Earth!”


In the said video which runs over two minutes, Vera was seen being assisted by a girl as he cuts through the garbage that trapped the animal.

The poor turtle was seen released to the sea afterwards. Vera then uttered threats to litterers, saying he will bring them down if he sees them.

“If I catch you throwing litter, I’m gonna kick you,” he said at the end of the video.

But the MMA star did not just dish out threats.

At some point in the video, uttered along with the threats, Vera also made a plea (or perhaps, given his forceful delivery, it may as well be a command, and a reasonable one): “Take care of the Earth!”
