Former England and Manchester United star, Rio Ferdinand, has starred in an advert for EA Sports' new UFC game.
EA Sports UFC was released on June 17 and features a host of UFC’s current stars, as well as unlockable legends Royce Gracie and Bruce Lee.
Taking time out from his pundit duties in Brazil, Ferdinand is seen trying his luck in a different sport, in order to keep fit during the summer break.
Proving that he is better with his feet than his hands, the defender prepares to enter the ring with former Cage Rage British Featherweight champion, Brad Pickett, only to be knocked to the ground by the first punch.
The current UFC fighter, nicknamed ‘One Punch’, proved too much for the defender, who is set to leave Manchester United this summer, after 12 years at the club.
The centre-back was the most expensive defender in the world when United purchased him for over £30million in 2002 and went on to make 312 appearances for the club, as well as 81 caps for England.
The 35-year-old still has plenty to offer at the top level, and has been linked with a move back to a London club, having already relocated his wife and children to the capital. Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers being suggested as possible destinations.
