Eddie Hall Mocks Thor Bjornsson With 'Double Dip' Sweets Gift Ahead Of Fight

Eddie Hall decided to bring out a UK classic – the Double Dip sherbet sweet – to troll upcoming opponent Hafþór Björnsson ahead of Saturday's big fight.

Bjornsson will finally come up against bitter rival Hall on March 19th at the 5,000 capacity Duty Free Tennis Stadium in Dubai.

It is a feud that has been ongoing for years, but things got especially heated this year when the Brit 'exposed' Bjornsson after he was accused of cheating at the 2017 World's Strongest Man competition.


Back in 2017, Björnsson was controversially penalised when he was deemed to have ‘double-dipped’ during a Viking Press, which essentially means he bent his knees to give himself a further boost.

Bjornsson felt he had been unfairly punished, while Hall was unable to resist having a pop at his fellow strongman by offering him some Double Dip sherbet sweets during a heated face-off on iFL TV's YouTube channel this week.

That's right. Hall handed a pack to host Kugan Cassius before passing another across the table. It didn't go down well.

Hall said: “I’ve brought you some sweets from the UK… let me just explain how they work.

"They’re really nice - so what you do is: you get this stick, you suck it and then you dip it in the sugar - it’s called Double Dip - and then you go up and you dip again, back down, and then you put it in your mouth.” 

Björnsson soon hit back “See? This is the reason that he has already lost because his mind is not in the fight - his mind is back in 2017." he said.

"And this is the reason Eddie Hall is going to lose on Saturday because his head is in the wrong place.”

You can watch the full face-off below.

Hall, who has pledged to "rip Thor's fu**ing head off" in the fight, has lost a total of 36kg while cutting weight for the bout.

'The Mountain', meanwhile, has lost almost a quarter of his original body weight in the build up, going from 205kg to 145kg in the space of around 16 months.

Who do you think will come out on top on Saturday night?
