MMAthletics Episode 2 Featuring NFL Quarterback Matt Leinart

We’ve got the second episode of FOX Sports new show MMAthletics hosted by Rachelle Leah for you to watch below.

This weeks show features a look at how Matt Leinart, quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, uses MMA training to improve both his physical and mental abilities as an athlete. The show also includes highlights from this past weekend’s UFC 113 event in Montreal.

We’ve already seen some former NFL players like Herschel Walker and Matt Mitrione making the crossover to actually fighting in the cage for major MMA promotions, and this may well become a more frequent occurrence in the future.
