Quite a few NFL guys train MMA nowadays, with Jared Allen being the most well known I can think of.
And hopefully this trend continues, it can only help the sport of MMA in my opinion as I have encountered many people who have not seen that many fights and think the athletes we posses and I quote "couldn't run 3 miles without dying". Which we know is ridiculous because MMA fighters are some of the most well trained and conditioned athletes in the world if not the best.
I really feel this is a big story because it brings far more credibility to the sport then I think some may realize.
