English actor Tom Hardy surprised the crowd at a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament by participating in a martial arts competition and stunned the arena by winning the event! Hardy, 45, is well-known for his striking good looks and remarkable roles in The Dark Knight Rises, Venom, and Mad Max: Fury Road.
Fans went wild after knowing the actor won the tournament by winning enough matches to bag the title. Hardy brought his jaw-dropping talent in martial arts to the light at the 2022 UMAC Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Open Championship, stunning the bystanders and contestants.
The actor’s appearance at the tournament was just Hardy “keeping his word,” organizers of the tournament said. Also, the actor’s appearance was kept quiet to avoid any pressure mounted on his shoulders. And it worked! Hardy dominated his division, winning the tournament with his certificate mentioning his real name “Edward Hardy.”
It is notable that Tom Hardy is a real-life “blue belt” and has been practicing mixed martial arts for years.
Fans can see the Venom actor return to screen for Mad Max: The Wasteland, reprising his role as Max Rockatansky, releasing in 2023.
