During his time with the New England Patriots, Tom Brady was known for being pretty close with his teammates. Now that he's a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, and a Super Bowl champion yet again, that continues.

Brady is a pretty big fan of UFC, and has attended major fights in the past. UFC 261 is in Jacksonville tonight, with a pretty solid lineup. Kamaru Usman will face Jorge Masvidal in the main event.

As he has in the past, Brady is attending a big sporting event with teammates. Tonight, it is wide receiver Mike Evans, and his backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

It's quite the trio. Obviously people are having fun with Gabbert, a pretty clear former first-round bust for the Jaguars, being there, but he's carved out a solid backup career and is a Super Bowl champion now. And Brady tends to treat his backup quarterbacks pretty well.

As many expected that they would, Mike Evans and Tom Brady developed a strong connection during the year. The former Texas A&M stand out's 1,006 yards was actually the second lowest of his NFL career, and he had a relatively slow start to the season, but he posted a career high 13 touchdown receptions. Those two should continue to build some impressive chemistry moving forward.

The Jackie Robinson jersey is also a very nice touch. Looking good Mike.

The main UFC 261 card is just getting underway, with the preliminary card finished. It should be a good one for fight fans.
