Add this to your list of unbelievable Chuck Norris facts: Chuck Norris is a huge Tim Tebow fan.

Earlier this week, Norris wrote a column for NewsBusters called "Why Tim Tebow Is an Ultimate Clutch Player." And in the column, he defended Tebow's play and said that he thinks Tebow should get another chance in the NFL. Why? Well, because Tim Tebow reminds him a lot of a guy he knows pretty well—himself.

"He reminds me of myself when I used to compete in martial arts," Norris wrote. "I would spar with my black belts in class, and sometimes they would outscore me. Yet in the tournaments, I would defeat them. My students used to ask me, 'Why is it that we can contend equally against you in class but can't beat you in the tournaments?' My answer was always the same: 'When it counts, I rise to the occasion.'"

Do you hear that, NFL owners? Chuck Norris wants Tim Tebow signed. Consider yourselves warned...
