Put them in a cage! One of the two leading NFL players might need a different format after their recent spat. During a practice session between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Rams, things escalated due to a peculiar event. Raiders stalwart defensive end Maxx Crosby and Rams running back Cam Akers got into a brawl and exchanged punches. Speaking on the same, Crosby mentioned “S*** I was just doing what I do. He didn’t like that. So he got what he got.”

The tattooed DE didn’t mince any words and looked ready for an MMA match while answering the media. The fight although intense was of varying proportions. Crosby stands at 6ft 5 inches with 255 pounds and Akers is 5 ft 10 inches weighing 215 pounds.

Maxx Crosby nearly nails the boxer look. With massive tattoos covering his upper frame, he loves showing his aggression on the field as well. The star Raiders DE headbutted the Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. On recalling the incident, Crosby vividly explained “Mahomes was talking back like…’ Aye, what’s up?’ And so, they went down and scored,” “And I’m standing and watching, and they were all running in the end zone. I get bumped behind my back and get hit with a shoulder.” He has also responded to Mahomes on another occasion as well.
