Superstar NFL quarterback and multiple time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady recently became a partial owner of the UFC. He is married to Brazilian supermodel and actress, Gisele Caroline Bündchen.
Since 2004, Bündchen has been among the highest-paid models in the world, and as of 2007 was the 16th richest woman in the entertainment industry.
While it is highly unlikely the supermodel will ever take up mixed martial arts as a profession, she has been seen throwing a few punches. Bündchen posted videos of her training with former UFC fighter Tateki “Tech” Matsuda (13-7).
Matsuda most recently competed for Pancase MMA in Japan. He fought twice under the UFC banner losing to Joby Sanchez and Chris Beal.
According to an Instagram post by the Boston-based Matsuda, the gloves were a custom made Christmas gift for Bundchen:
