Middleweight UFC champion Luke Rockhold and former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who both train with Tareq Azim, found themselves working out alongside each another for a bit on Friday, and then got after it with some playful sparring.

Rockhold proved tricky as usual from his Southpaw stance, but Lynch got to work with his lead left jab. Rockhold leaned in but used head movement to avoid all of the recently retired NFL star’s shots.

Warming up with @beastmode all about that action

A bit frustrated, perhaps, Lynch next moved in with a risky lead right knee Beast Mode strike. The powerful halfback then followed that up with an even more brazen flying crane kick attempt.

Both men were all smiles at the end. You could be as well after watching the clip.
