Randy Couture is in Indianapolis this weekend trying to create some interest in MMA training methods among the NFL community. From Micheal David Smith at Fanhouse:

Randy Couture is spending the weekend in Indianapolis, trying to drum up interest in mixed martial arts training methods in general, and his Xtreme Couture gym in particular, for NFL teams interested in exploring new methods of strength and conditioning for their players.

Fox Sports NFL reporter Jay Glazer, who takes a keen interest in MMA, is acting as a go-between for Couture and NFL teams.

Jared Allen of the Minnesota Vikings talks about his time with Arizona Combat Sports:

 "I think it's going to be the most important thing I did to help my career," Allen said last year. "It totally changed my entire workout regimen. It's so much easier on the body than running and all that stuff that puts impact on your joints. Plus, it's fun. You won't get burnt out doing the same old running and hills. You'll push yourself further than you ever anticipated."

The article goes on to talk about NFL players competing in MMA after retirement. One player in particular, Stephen Neal of the New England Patriots (the guy who beat Brock Lesnar in college wrestling), is mentioned by Couture. Full article here.
