NFL quarterback Tom Brady vs. Sumo wrestler
It seems the hottest trend in sports right now is for its athletes to try and seek success in other sports. The most recent and outrageous case is Conor McGregor stepping into the ring against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mixed Martial Arts is no stranger to welcoming crossover athletes, whether from kickboxing, wrestling or even the NFL where we have seen the likes of Brendan Schaub, Matt Mitrione to even the legendary Herschel Walker.
So with that in mind how would an NFL player fair if he went into another combat sport such as boxing, BJJ or in this case the sport of Sumo Wrestling.
While on the TB12 2017 Asia Tour, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finds himself in Japan at a Sumo Dojo. Sizing up the competition it’s become clear Tom is going to have to represent the NFL in his effort to try and push a Sumo out of the ring.
Will his tackle be any match? Check out the clip below.
