Soccer Mega-Star Neymar Gets UFC Fighter Security Detail

The skills and mentalities cultivated from training and experience in the world of mixed martial arts can be applicable to a wide variety of situations. However, it would appear that one professional soccer player plans on using a fighter’s skills in a somewhat unexpected way.

Soccer superstar Neymar recently took to Twitter to reveal that he has elected a new bodyguard. This time, the soccer phenom revealed that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Nordine Taleb is now protecting him.

Nordine Taleb most recently earned a unanimous decision victory over Oliver Enkamp at UFC Fight Night 109, putting the fighter’s record at 13-4.
