Cathal Pendred saves a baby dolphin on his free time


Former Cage Warriors Welterweight champion and current TUF 19 contestant, Cathal Pendred, apparently is much more than an elite Mixed Martial Artist. On Sunday, Pendred posted a photo on Twitter of him saving a baby dolphin in his spare time.

Pendred posted this statement on Twitter earlier:

I just spent an hour in the sea at Doonbeg trying to save a baby dolphin. He was very hurt but alive and well now!

Pendred is the clear cut favorite to win the Middleweight tournament on the current season of The Ultimate Fighter even though he is fighting a division above his normal weight class.

After not having to fight to get into the house because multiple opponents apparently bowed out due to injuries, Pendred was selected to fight first by his coach BJ Penn against Team Edgar’s Hector Urbina.

After a tough first round, Pendred rallied to dominate Urbina in the final two frames to seal the unanimous decision win and advance in the tournament.
