Tom Hardy Is A Real-Life Action Hero

When it comes to celebrities I don't want to mess with, Tom Hardy just topped my list, beating out the likes of The Rock. In fact, I would rather get slapped on stage by Will Smith, than having to square off against Tom.

Tom Hardy had a couple of badass roles, like Bane in "The Dark Knight Rises". But who knew, that the real badass was Tom all along. There are multiple videos of him training in martial arts like Boxing, or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, short BJJ. He sometimes also posts pictures on social media where you can clearly see his love for the sport.

I gotta say, he kicks some serious ass! This footage is already impressive enough, but now he's even competed in a BJJ competition, bringing home not only one, but two gold medals.

Yes, you heard me right. He competed in two separate Divisions, one where you have to wear traditional Jiu Jitsu clothing and one where you wear normal sports clothes. So he had to fight through two competitions, and he won both.

Here you watch some footage of one of his fights:

Man, I gotta say, he destroyed his opponent pretty Hardy. If you think what he did here was easy, maybe you should try it out yourself. It takes a lot of hard work to reach that level, and I'm sure Tom could easily choke out most of us. So don't mess with Tom Hardy, he's a badass.
