MMA news

Former NFL All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell made his celebrity boxing debut last weekend in Los Angeles taking on fellow gridiron goon Adrian Peterson as part of the “Social Gloves 2” fight card, also featuring YouTube personalities AnEsonGib and Austin McBroom.

Bell scored a fifth-round knockout victory over Peterson and a $250,000 check to go with it. As for Peterson, he took home just $15,000 for his efforts, which sounds like chicken feed until you find out Jerry Bradford got paid just $920 for stopping Darynn Leyva.

If you’re wondering why an athlete like Peterson, who made over $100 million in 12 seasons with NFL, is fighting for $15,000 under the “Social Gloves” banner, it probably has something to do with his unpaid loans — and corresponding lawsuits — documented by The Athletic back in summer 2019.
