Recently, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson made an appearance on UFC Unfiltered, where he was interviewed by Matt Serra and Jim Norton as part of the podcast.

Interestingly enough, at some point, deGrasse Tyson decided to drop some knowledge on Matt Serra as he showed the former UFC welterweight champion some moves he learned during his time as a wrestler in high school. Yes, you read that correct. Famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson wrestled in high school. Not only did deGrasse Tyson wrestle, he was the captain of the wrestling team!
