He's 6'6". She's 3'9". Akbar Gbajabiamila doesn't stand a CHANCE against little Ninja Lylah!

We all know Akbar Gbajabiamila. He’s the energetic co-host of American Ninja Warrior. He also happens to be 6’6”, a former NFL player and in pretty darn good shape.

DIP into the weekend @ATighterU? Bring on the ⛓'s! Friday got me feelin' like BEAST MODE .

And we all know Lylah. She’s the 3’9” little Ninja who won our hearts with her spunky attitude on her incredible backyard course.

Akbar and Lylah went head to head at NBC’s FanFest in Denver, Colorado. The goal was to race side by side down the inflatable course. But, well... it wasn’t really side by side. Watch what happens as Akbar realizes he’s up against a true little Ninja Warrior!
