If there were any lingering doubts as to whether mixed martial arts had hit mainstream America, that issue has been decided in the past seven days.

Quinton Jackson (Pictures) will join LeBron James and other star athletes this weekend in Los Angeles to film a Nike commercial dubbed "Human Chain," Sherdog.com has learned.

The spot, featuring a premise of "overachieving with victory, getting knocked down and getting back up," said Jackson's trainer Juanito Ibarra, will be the second Nike ad to showcase a mixed martial artist. Randy Couture (Pictures) became the first in a 1996 spot called "Scars" that featured close-ups of his famously cauliflowered ears.

first bud light, now Nike aligning with a major fighter...good signs.

as soon as i see someone wearing fight shorts as a style just because it has the swoosh...that'll be the day.

It could happen in another year or so....either way this is a sign that the big money is on it's way for our fighters. Pretty soon they will make more via endorsements than they do for the sport, just like all the other professionals.
