Watch: Tim Tebow channel Rocky for a victory on Lip Sync Battle

Friday February 5th, 2016

Tim Tebow may not be in the NFL but that has not diminished his competitive spirit at all, as the former Broncos-Jets-Patriots-Eagles quarterback brought the fire to his appearance on Thursday night’s episode of Lip Sync Battle.

Tebow, who played collegiately at Florida, pulled out a fiery rendition of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” as well as “Take Your Time” by Sam Hunt to defeat Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev on the show.

• Roger Goodell just dabbed on Good Morning America

While Tebow brought out his inner Rocky for his performance, Dobrev put on a familiar looking blue and orange No. 15 jersey, much like her opponent wore, for her rendition of Omi‘s hit “Cheerleader”.
