The next actor who wants to tangle with Vince Vaughn on the set of one of his movies might have to defend a slick ground game because he's learning the art of submissions from the same person responsible for Ronda Rousey's Brazilian jiu-jitsu game.
Vaughn just recently started training at the Gracie University under head coach Rener Gracie, who has worked with a slew of top UFC fighters, including Rousey as well as former WWE superstar CM Punk.
Gracie posted a video grappling with Vaughn on Monday as the veteran actor showed off some of his new moves while attaining white-belt status after his first session.
"I really liked the videos and the philosophy with the 'bully proof' stuff so I first came with my daughter and started checking it out," Vaughn said about his first time grappling on the mats. "I wanted to take a class and have fun."
Vaughn training under Gracie comes just a few months after he filmed "Term Life" alongside former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
The 45-year-old actor is just the latest famous face from Hollywood to begin training Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Actor Clark Gregg, who stars in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", is actually a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu as well as director Guy Ritchie, who trains under famed coach Renzo Gracie in New York. "Boondock Saints" and "Dexter" star Sean Patrick Flanery is also a long-time jiu-jitsu practitioner.
Before long, there might be a grappling tournament exclusive to Hollywood's best and brightest if this trend keeps up.
