UFC fighter Sage Northcut was just flaunting his strong hands when he sparked the latest online challenge.

The "Super Sage Apple Challenge" encourages people to rip an apple open with your bare hands. He tweeted a video of himself tearing up an apple and encouraged his followers to do the same.

Northcutt says he eats the apples, so there's no wasted food.

Naturally, after the story about the apple challenge aired, the WGN Morning News team wanted to try it themselves. Luckily, Larry Potash had a banana on hand and his co-anchor Robin Baumgarten snapped it in half on live TV.

Don't worry -- he ate it afterward.
