ALBUQUERQUE,  N.M.- The worlds of soccer and mixed martial arts are combining in Albuquerque.


New Mexico United has entered into a partnership with Jackson Wink MMA Academy.

The MMA coaches will help teach the soccer players how to stay mentally focused.

"The mental aspect of this is real," said Peter Trevisani, New Mexico United owner. "Some of the best MMA fighters in the world train right here every single day, so for them to integrate with our professional soccer players, I think it can give them some mental points that can translate on to the pitch."

New Mexico United plays its next game Saturday at 7:30 at Isotopes Park.
