Zion Clark has a new fan in Conor McGregor.

Clark, a wrestler who was born without legs, got a shout-out from the former UFC division two champ after winning his MMA debut last Saturday.

Commenting on a video of Clark’s first fight, McGregor hailed Clark as a unique strategic challenge and congratulated the 25-year-old from Columbus, Ohio.

“Really cool to hear about this guy’s appearance and see him now,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. “Lighting entry on a low one. Fabulous! You should not relate to him in any way shape or form.

Clark faced Eugene Murray, a 0-4 pro-mixed martial arts fighter, at a gladiator challenge event held on tribal land outside of San Diego, where the bout was not under the jurisdiction of the California State Athletic Commission. He won the bout via unanimous decision after three rounds. Murray fell to 0-5.

Born without legs due to a rare birth disorder, Clark wrestled at Kent State University and held two Guinness World Records for the fastest person to walk on his hands. He was the subject of a Netflix documentary Zion, which described his rise from his childhood in the foster care system.

He thanked Clark McGregor for his support on Twitter.

“I appreciate the love and respect @TheNotoriousMMA,” he wrote. “This is just the beginning for me, I’m excited to see how far I can go in the fighting match! You have proven the wrestling doubters wrong to become an All American and D1 wrestler. All respect.”

McGregor recovers from a broken leg at UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier. The former Division II champion was briefly confined to a wheelchair as he underwent surgery to repair a broken tibia and fibula, and is still undergoing intensive physiotherapy to rehabilitate his injury. His return schedule is unknown.

“Absolutely legendary!” McGregor tweeted to Clark.
