Rio Ferdinand has stepped up his pre-season training, by the looks of this video.

Rio might not be headed back to Manchester United next season but he's found a handy way to keep in shape for the upcoming campaign, should anyone be interested in his services.

The former England international has been tackling a bit of mixed martial arts, and, in conjunction with the awesome-looking new UFC game out this week, they have a little video for your enjoyment.

You can check out everything that Rio learned over on the EA Sports website, and check out some more info about the game. Keep an eye out for our review also.
