Who would win in a fight: Justin Timberlake or Travis Kelce?

With a pre-existing KO and 80 pounds on the singer, the tight end is the likely victor—something Timberlake says once made his "life flash before [his] eyes."

On the latest episode of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the two reminisced about their time competing in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship Tournament at Edgewood Tahoe South golf course in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada, back in July 2020, where they played against the Chiefs champion and Patrick Mahomes, and a celebratory moment quickly turned into a scene from a horror film.

Fallon took a moment out of their interview to reenact a hole-in-one—something that earned him cheers even from the opposing team, since he's so bad at the sport—which led Kelce to come running over and lift him off his feet in celebration. The NFL star held him in the air with just one hand as he threw a singular finger up in the air to emphasize the comedian's score, as seen in footage shared on the show.

Kelce was still so amped up that he ran after Timberlake next, preparing to do "one of those, you know when they jump," the "Cry Me a River" crooner mimicked. In a panic, he knew he had to engage, but the movement knocked him to the ground, causing him to do a near-perfect backward somersault.

"While that might not look like much, my neck, for like a week," he said, indicating his muscles had locked up as a result.

"It is Travis Kelce," Fallon conceded.

We assume there's no bad blood between the two, but Kelce did recently call JT the most famous person in his contacts list while simultaneously admitting he didn't think he'd answer the phone if he called, so who knows?
