MMA is the latest craze

According to, Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant has taken up mixed martial arts training with Fox’s Jay Glazer.

It is clear that MMA training is the latest craze for National Football League Players.

The reason for it most likely is the amount of speed, power, and agility that is used within the octogon.

However, for the life of me I don’t understand why a football player would subject himself to the kind pounding on a body that MMA does when for almost half a year football players already take.

Now, add heavy weightlifting on top of that and you have a recipe for major injury.

In the end, you can expect teams to start putting it in players’ contract that they cannot engage in MMA training.
