Jay Glazer Gave ‘Brutal’ MMA Lesson To Stu Scott

On Feb. 4, ESPN PR guy Mac Nwulu Tweeted: “ESPN Stu Scott, fitness buff, arrived Miami for SB XLIV after 1wk MMA training under FOX Sport’s Jay Glazer. No plans to fight pro!!

Jay Glazer trained Stuart Scott in MMA

Pro or no pro, Stuart Scott and Jay Glazer in the Octagon? Is there a sports fan alive who wouldn’t fork over 49.99 to see that? (Dude, I can dream, can’t I?)

To indulge my curiousity, I called Glazer and Scott today to get the downlow, and it turns out Nwulu’s Tweet was indeed true. Glazer, who trains NFL players with MMA legend Randy Couture during the NFL offseason, told me today that he recently trained Scott for a day in Ft. Lauderdale.

49er Patrick Willis Likes Cold Baths & Phil Collins

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis is a pretty good football player. We know this because even though he plays on a team that never makes an appearance on national television these days, and has won only 10 games in the last two seasons, Willis was named the Defensive Rookie of the Year last season, and was chosen for his second Pro Bowl in as many seasons earlier this week. If he were playing for the New York Giants or Dallas Cowboys, he would probably be talked about in the media as the next Ray Lewis.

So Patrick has been good enough at football in his first two seasons to start causing people to wonder what it is that he does before a game to get himself ready to dominate. After all, a lot of professional athletes have odd superstitions that they follow before every game. Patrick is no different, though I’m pretty sure he’s the only player in the NFL willing to admit that Phil Collins is a must-listen before each contest.

Chad Johnson Has Plenty To Say About 49ers Rookie Linebacker

OCHO CINCO CALLS 49ERS LB PATRICK WILLIS MUY BUENO: The SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE brings out something we haven’t heard in a while - the mouth of Chad Johnson:

Ocho Cinco was back to his usual talkative self during a Wednesday press conference for Saturday’s Bengals-49ers matchup. Chad was particularly chatty about San Francisco rookie linebacker Patrick Willis:”Who in the (expletive) is 52? Oh, my (expletive) God! I done seen a lot of linebackers in a seven-year period. That (expletive) is good! You guys can laugh all you want, he is the real deal! He’s playing with a cast on his hand, right? All during film, I’m calling him Bam-Bam.”

And the praise didn’t end there: “He’s the truth. You just tell him 85 said you’re the truth. I stopped watching the DBs to watch him. I don’t know anything about playing the position, but I know when someone is doing something right, because he is making every damn play.”On the other hand, Johnson didn’t have much to say about the 49ers cornerbacks: “I don’t care who I see. They could put Oprah out there, I’ll run routes on her. Since she has so much money, she’d be a man-to-man, lock-down corner because they’re the ones that get paid.”

But Chad did end his chat on a light note, offering some warm greetings for the 49ers coach: “Tell Mr. Nolan I said hi. I don’t (know him). I just want him to know me.”
