Rio Ferdinand enters the octagon in advert for new UFC video game [Video]

After Manchester United and Rio Ferdinand parted company the assumption was that the defender would seek to join another club.

But it seems as though Ferdinand fancies his trying his hand at a different sport, if this advert is anything to go by.

Ferdinand stars in the latest trailer for the new UFC video game in which he actually steps into the run and engages in a tussle.

He clearly isn’t shy either! Ferdinand shows off his physique and springs right back up after punched directly in the face. Fair play.

You can watch the trailer below and the full ‘fight’ here.
