It was the second fight for the 16-year NFL veteran, who officially retired from the NFL earlier this year with the third-most rushing yards in history. In his combat debut, Gore took on former NBA star Deron Williams in December on the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 card in an exhibition bout. In an exciting battle, Williams prevailed in the fight.

During his NFL run where he made the Pro Bowl five times, Gore played for the San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, and New York Jets.
