New hit TV-show Lip Sync Battle will feature Tim Tebow on Thursday channeling his inner Rocky Balboa through Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.”

The football player will be competing against Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, who recently announced that she would not be returning for the supernatural CW drama’s next season. Dobrev shows her support for her opponent in a Tebow Gator’s uniform.

Tebow opens the promo showing off his jump-roping skills, and things start to get real at the end of the clip when he strips himself down to a tank top. Cohost Chrissy Tegan is seen donning some cute pink boxing gloves.

Catch the whole performance on Spike on Thursday 10 p.m. EST.
