Bryce Harper trains while wearing a UFC belt

Bryce Harper? He isn’t interested.
The Washington Nationals baseball stud – one of the best young players in MLB – wanted a title belt, alright.
But he wanted one from the UFC and he said so on Twitter last week, tweeting at Dana White, Lorenzo Fertitta and Joe Rogan with his request.
None of them responded to the 21-year-old from Las Vegas. But that’s OK, because the UFC’s official account did, asking Harper that he can get one if he hits a home run while wearing it.
Actually, all the UFC wanted was for him to take a picture with it. And Harper wrote back that he would hit a home run in batting practice with it on. Awesome.
And now that he's got it, he's already giving it quite the workout ... by working out with it. Who knows, this might kick off a whole new title belt trend.
Sounds like a match made in baseball heaven.
