#5 Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) is a Jiu-Jitsu master outside WWE

At 47 years of age, Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) is still one of the fittest men in the WWE wrestling ring. That’s not all, as MVP has proven himself once again on the mic in WWE, and continues to play a great manager for The Hurt Business.

MVP is a former two-time WWE United States Champion, but that isn’t the only gold the Superstar has won during his career. Outside the wrestling ring, MVP practices Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The WWE Superstar is good at the sport, and he won The World Master Jiu-Jitsu IBJJF Championship 2019 in the Masters 4/Male/Purple/Ultra-Heavy Category. MVP also recently revealed to his wrestling fans on Twitter that he’d won a gold medal on the IBJJF Masters tournament just a night before WWE TLC 2020.

“For the people that have been asking what medal I'm holding in this photo, let me inform you. On Saturday I won a Brazilian jiu-jitsu world championship competing in the IBJJF Masters tournament. The Hurt Business had an eventful weekend! Now you know."

MVP returned to WWE in 2020 after being away from the company for almost a decade. The Superstar has helped several athletes such as Bobby Lashley, Cedric Alexander, and Shelton Benjamin in recent months. 2020 turned out to be a very eventful year for the veteran.
