Watch: Tom Brady whips perfect pass to UFC champ Alexander Volkanovski at Melbourne event

The NFL legend Tom Brady, for the first time since 2000, is not playing in the NFL, while the best coach in his eyes, Bill Belichick, also lost his job to Jarod Mayo. While Belichick’s future in the league remains uncertain, Brady has been dedicating significant time to his family and friends.

After sharing a memorable Christmas day celebration with his children, Brady is currently making waves with his adventures in Australia and his interactions with UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.

Tom Brady’s interaction with Alexander Volkanovski

Tom Brady let Alexander Volkanovski showcase his versatility beyond his rugby skills during an event with the NFL legend in Melbourne.

After taking a break from his UFC 298 fight camp, Volkanovski joined Tom Brady at the “Evening with Tom Brady” event, where he impressed attendees with his athletic prowess. Brady, acknowledging Volkanovski’s background in rugby, invited him onstage for a special moment during the event.

Then the 46-year-old tasked the UFC star with running a route into the crowd to receive a pass from him. Nevertheless, the UFC champion embraced the challenge with ease.  The featherweight kingpin seamlessly caught a long pass from Brady, drawing admiration from both fight fans and football enthusiasts.

Brady jokingly commented on his decision to make the pass challenging for others but not for Volkanovski.

“See, there’s part of me that says, I can’t make it that easy, because they’re going to go back and be like, ‘That was easy, I caught a pass. So sometimes I like to make it a little hard. But not for him, because I love him! You’ve got to go right down the middle.”

Sharing the heartwarming interaction on his Instagram, Volkanovski also shared his deep love for the NFL great.
