HBO’s Real Sports on Jay Glazer, MMA Trainer
Many of you know Jay Glazer from his job as a reporter on FOX NFL Sunday. Glazer has broken some of the top football stories in recent memory, including the NFL labor deal, the Plaxico Burress shooting and Spygate. But you may not know Glazer also doubles as a fierce and well-respected mixed martial arts trainer. Glazer has even used his experience in MMA to train some of football’s best.
All credit on this story goes to Bryant Gumbel and HBOʼs Real Sports, who did a great piece on the ethics of journalism and Glazerʼs close relationship with the athletes and coaches he covers. Head to HBO.com to find that story, but above is a video that shows Glazer training Packers All-Pro linebacker Clay Matthews. Note about halfway through the video when Matthews shows what a beast he is by actually puting a full dent in a Muay-Thai leg pad.
