Jay has also competed in MMA and holds a record of 4-3 in mixed martial arts and submission fighting. He trained on the Arizona Combat Sports Team but his TV duties have prevented him from fighting since joining FOX covering the NFL as Senior Writer.

He made his name as an NFL writer for the New York Post and gained large market television experience as an on-air commentator for WCBS-TV in New York, as a host of Unnecessary Roughness on the MSG network.
During the NFL off-season, along with MMA great, Randy Couture, they have developed MMAthletics, a full time training camp designed solely for professional athletes. They have trained over 50 NFL players in a mixed martial arts cross training program to improve their minds and bodies for NFL action. Jay last year trained Clay Matthews, who was runner-up Defensive Player of the Year after working MMA with Jay. He also trained the Atlanta Falcons squad and the St. Louis Rams among others.
