"Fighting is easy to understand. You just hit the guy as hard as you can.... My message to them is about how to mentally deal with things. Some of what I talk about will be conditioning of the body, but my belief is that everything starts with the mind. You win a fight not with your strength but with your mind."

Former UFC heavyweight champion, ringside commentator and mixed martial arts legend, Bas Rutten, was recently invited to deliver a motivational speech to the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). The 43-year-old pioneer admits he doesn't know much about the sport, but that doesn't really matter -- he sure knows how to talk. While a nice touch, the five-time Super Bowl champions will likely need a lot more help than "el Guapo" to improve on their lackluster 2007 record and finish anywhere near the top of the NFC West.
