Videos: NBA's Sacramento Kings train MMA with Urijah Faber

Watch NBA stars Cousins, Curry, Stockton, and other Sacramento Kings train Mixed Martial Arts under UFC star Urijah Faber.

The Detroit Pistons isn't the only NBA team cross-training mixed martial arts. A couple of weeks after the UFC-organized mini camp for Andre Drummond and the rest of the Pistons, it was Urijah Faber's turn to train stars from the Sacramento Kings.

The Sacramento native in Faber helped train massive NBA players almost twice his size, as the team looks to get some unorthodox workouts to develop conditioning and bonding for the players before the season starts. Several players went to the Team Alpha Male gym to workout including the franchise player in DeMarcus Cousins, who as seen on the clip below, didn't seem too keen on learning much about fighting.

Also working out with them were Kings role players such as David Stockton, the son of Hall-of-Famer John Stockton, and Seth Curry, the younger brother of this year's NBA MVP.
