Generally, not too many fights break out during the postgame handshake portion of sporting events, but that didn't stop Trent Williams and Richard Sherman from getting into it after this 2012 NFC Wild Card Playoff game.

You got to tip your cap to the sheer courage of Sherman here. He's antagonizing one of the largest men in the entire NFL without his helmet on... or maybe that's just foolishness.

Trent Williams looks like "The Mountain" character from HBO's Game of Thrones series all suited up in his gridiron attire, and Sherman still decides to gloat in his face. Well, Williams didn't take kindly to that, delivering a lethal right blow that not only knocks the Seattle Seahawks player's head back, but also the head of an innocent bystander behind him. To Sherman's credit, he doesn't go down, but he had to be sore the next day.

The former Washington Redskins left tackle has made more headlines for holding out than playing football in recent years, but if anyone forgot how strong and massive he was in his prime, this video should remind you.

The real irony here is that Sherman and Williams both now play for the San Francisco 49ers, following the recent acquisition of the left tackle. Perhaps, these two will bury the hatchet now that they're teammates, or maybe round two is coming in training camp.
