We spoke with Jeremy Haas who works for Select Physical Therapy and is the head athletic trainer here at Xtreme Couture MMA – Las Vegas.

Jeremy has been an athletic trainer since 2002 and has been an integral part of the Xtreme Couture team for close to 3 years.

Select PT is the largest Physical Therapy company in the country and in the Las Vegas area alone they supply 33 athletic trainers to the high schools during practices and at their games.  Select PT first started helping the XC pro team back when Randy Couture stepped out of retirement to face Tim Sylvia at UFC 68 in 2007.  Ever since they have increasingly become an essential part of our team.

The services they provide are primarily for any injuries that may happen during pro practice and during Xtreme Couture’s busy evening classes.  Jeremy says ” but they also do rehab, emergency medicine or any advice on strength and conditioning and/or nutrition like XCAP Sport Supplements“.

Select PT is here Monday through Friday for 4 hours during the day around pro-practice.

Dr. John Fitzgerald provides nutritional advice to our professional fighters that train at Xtreme Couture here in Las Vegas.  He is an expert in his field and teaches other doctors how to utilize nutritional supplements in their practices.  He answers questions and provides useful information whenever he is counseling our athletes.

We thought everyone would benefit from the information he provides, so we asked him to start making videos of some important topics he talks about.  Here is the first in a series of videos. The first video he taped is about how to test if your body is sensitive to foods you are eating.  If you are sensitive to the food, it can cause slow exercise recovery, and can slow the rate of fat loss if you are on a diet. Another common symptom is skin problems.

A 2008 U.S. Olympian and former ESPY award nominee for Best Collegiate Athlete,  Ben Askren, the reigning Bellator Welterweight Champion, will put his title on the line for the first time against Xtreme Couture fighter Jay Hieron.

Askren and Hieron have made no secret that this fight will be a grudge match of sorts as both competitors have used social media to display their dislike for one another.

While both fighters certainly respect each other’s accomplishments, contrasting styles and personalities have added another level of intrigue to an already highly-anticipated fight.

Star-divide

“I’ve been looking forward to this fight for a while,” Askren said. “I’m more excited to dominate Jay than anyone I have ever fought, so October 29th can’t get here fast enough. We’re going to put on a show.”

For Hieron, the former UFC veteran and Las Vegas-trained fighter is looking to extend his winning streak to 11 with a championship victory over Askren. “The Thoroughbred” earned his title shot by claiming the Season 4 welterweight tournament with victories over Anthony Lapsley, Brent Weedman, and former judoka Olympian Rick Hawn. While the New York native fully understands the Midwest crowd will mostly be in Askren’s corner, that doesn’t bother the confident Hieron.

“I’ve been getting ready for this fight for months, so location doesn’t matter,” said Hieron. “I’ve got one goal in mind, and that’s punching this guy in the face and taking his belt. We all know the game he is going to bring to the cage, and everyone knows mine, so it’s going to be a war, simple as that.”
