JIU-JITSU LEGEND GORDON RYAN BATTLES WITH ‘THE MOUNTAIN’ FROM GAME OF THRONES!
Gordon Ryan is no stranger to challenges – but this time, did he bite off more than he could chew?
Gordon Ryan has taken over BJJ – the five-time ADCC World champion and two-time IBJJF No-Gi World champion is a standout in the grappling world…but could the massive size of THE MOUNTAIN from Game of Thrones be too much for him?
No, not really. Skills beat size every single time. It was a friendly roll between Gordon and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson – better known for his role as The Mountain in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones – but no size advantage is too great for Ryan to overcome…as long as he doesn’t let The Mountain squeeze his head…
Björnsson isn’t new to challenging fighters – the professional strongman has sparred with UFC fighters Conor McGregor and Gunni Nelson and has even participated in boxing exhibitions.
