Matt Mitrione Suspension Lifted, Will Meet Brendan Schaub At UFC On Fox 8


Yet another fight was announced Wednesday evening for July’s UFC on Fox 8 card: A Heavyweight showdown between former professional football players Brendan Schaub and Matt Mitrione.

A.J. Perez from Foxsports.com confirmed the bout on Twitter.

Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub (9-3) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Strikeforce import Lavar Johnson at UFC 157. Schaub is looking to put together a new win streak after previously dropping two in a row to Ben Rothwell and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. In his fight with Johnson, we saw Schaub trade in his usual stand-and-trade fighting style for a safer, wrestling-based style that ultimately won him the fight.

Matt Mitrione (6-2) has recently made headlines after being suspended by the organization for transphobic comments made about transgender fighter Fallon Fox on an interview with the MMA Hour. Prior to his suspension, Mitrione posted an impressive first round knockout victory over Phil De Fries in Sweden. Before the bout, he was riding a two fight losing streak to the likes of Roy Nelson and Cheick Kongo.

UFC on Fox 8 takes place on Saturday, July 27th at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.

    This fight makes sense. Two football players run into each other and it shouldn’t just knock one them out.

    so pretty much mitrione was suspended till his next fight. good one UFC, you taught him a lesson.

    • KII says:

      Well, I’m sure they didn’t give him the fine he paid back, and the suspension was probably handed out quickly in order to stop other fighters from coming out and talking about the “D1ckless man fighting women”.

  4. K2 says:

    They didn’t give him the fine he paid back. And I think the suspension was more to stop other fighters from commenting on the “D1ckless man fighting women”.
