Matt Mitrione Turns Down Offer To Fight Cormier In Strikeforce & Dana Is Pissed | UFC NEWS

“Yeah, he turned the fight down. It’s fucking insane. It makes no sense to me. I’m a little bummed out by it. Listen, you don’t want big opportunities, I hear you. I get it, then. All I can say is, I guess he doesn’t want big opportunities. I get it. Duly noted… He wants to fight a guy who weighs 205, but doesn’t want to fight the guy who’s the real heavyweight, the legitimate guy who’s ranked. And Mitrione’s not getting any younger.”

During last weekend’s UFC on FUEL TV 5 post-fight media festivities, UFC president Dana White told the media that UFC heavyweight fighter, Matt Mitrione, turned down an offer to defect to Strikeforce for a one-off fight against the Heavyweight Grand Prix champion, Daniel Cormier.

Instead, Mitrione was hoping to book a fight against former UFC light-heavyweight champion, “Rampage Jackson.”

    Mitrone’s a terd anyway. Glad he didn’t accept. Although I wouldnt mind seeing his head get knocked off.

  2. DMAC says:

    Talking all that shit about Bones and you turn down a fight with ample amount of time to prepare. Scary ass clown!

  3. Mike b says:

    Everybody’s Turning down fights and getting injured.what the fu*k is going on??????

  4. g Rod says:

    This is the type of unfair racist shit that I’m talkin about. Yeah now Dana Whiteboy is pissed, but WHY motherf**king Mitrione in the first place. Sonnen didnt deserve the shot at Jones but he’s Danas poster boy for the white media and when Jones says no he brings in back-up white boy Vitor. Bullsh*t favorism for his Apple pie Sonnen and all-American blonde bitch Faber. Title shots over and over for them cause they look right and light on the UFC posters. You have a wide motherf**king nose, then I guess it’s “F**k You” Chiek Kongo right? So bring in another white boy who doesn’t deserve it cause the first white boy who didn’t deserve it got injured.Why because Dana Whiteboy wants another White champion to go with GSP cause he’s tired of black men who won’t suck Lorenzos dick like the CHAMPION Jones. Don’t get it twisted this isn’t about Mitrione ducking the figjt it’s about another case of motherf**king Dana trying to prevent a black man fromhaving a title. It didn’t work Dana bitch ass Whiteboy cause your Great White Hope Coward ass was too scared to step up, and he can suck Cormiers balls. F*ck you UFC!!

    • You sir,are a moron says:

      You are completely delusional and dont even deserve to be using a key case you didnt notice because your too blinded from the huge race card in front of your face,vitor is not white.chieck kongo? Really?hes not even a top ten heavy weight and has one if worst glass jaws in mma……go play in traffic …moron.

    • What you talking about? says:

      What the hell are you smoking? 3 current champs are black men, and Benson Henderson is half-black and half-Korean, so your claims of Dana preventing a black champion is as far from the truth as can possibly be. Furthermore, Mitrione isn’t anywhere close to being a title-eliminating match-up for a man of Cormier’s quality. Finally, Kongo can’t string wins together, has a piss-poor ground game, and his last win was against Shawn “Who?” Jordan. Deal with it.

      • your all stupid mitrione will come out in his next fight and destroy whoever he faces! kongo is a joke and turned thier fight into a joke! mitrione would stomp cormier, he is a fat guy in strikeforce why do you all think he is a top fighter? josh barnett really just strikeforce fighter, mir would have broke his arm off

    • Your.a.Fucking.Retard says:

      Are you kidding me with this bullshit??? Probably another fucking black dude crying that litres not fair. Well guess what its not fair for anyone faggot. I guess Demetrius who’s black and lost was Damask fault. I guess Ben Henderson isn’t black either? I guess Rashad is white too? Or Rampage as well?? Not to mention all the other black fighters who had big opportunities in the last year or so and never capitalized. So give your sorry ass shit a break you useless fuck save that shit for your black panther meetings with the rest of the ignorant coons you probably cry with. Not to mention Dana always says how great Anderson is and he is far from white so argh homo. —-Thank you from every fan on this page with half a brain<<

    • Quinn says:

      Vitor is not a white guy lol
      He’s a Brazilian with French and Greek descent so he’s not ‘white’ as you see it.
      Besides most of the belt holders…Anderson Silva, Junior dos Santos, Benson Henderson, Aldo, Jon Jones, Demetrious Johnson, Dominick Cruz, & Renan Barão (Interim champion0 are all not white at all!
      So your argument is not a good one to say the least.

      • g Rod says:

        @Quinn…Where did I say there are no black champions? I said that Dana DOESN’T WANT anymore black champions. Sonnen and Faber get shot after motherf*cking shot and now that bitch ass fat Mitrione gets an offer cause Kongos too dark and no blonde hair like that favorite UFC girl Faber. You think a black man in the whitehouse means everyone is happy with the situation? Dana Whiteboy would strip all black championd of their belts, but he cant. What he can do is disrespect them if they dont kiss his ass like Rashad Bojangles Evans and keep lining up media friendly whiteboys like Sonnen and Lesnar even when they dont deserve shit. Its called RACISM motherf*cker!!! Wake up! F*ck the ufc!

        • Mike b says:

          Ur screaming fuck the UFC but I bet u still watch it.getting mad dosent change a thing so shut up u ho!There are more important things in life to worry or be upset is to short to get mad over petty shit,get a life u lame.

        • You sir,are a moron says:

          The world would be a better place if you would happen to run into george zimmerman in a dark alley somewhere..

        • Top Dawg says:

          Actually is called Business and Money, Dana is a Business man and he knows Lesnar is a more household name than Kongo will ever be .. Kongo is washed up his last fight was terrible and every time he wins 2 fights he looses 1 ? you can sit there and play this RACE card all you want, Dana brings in the best fighters around the world, Tell me what Black Light Heavyweight deserves a title shot now ? or Heavyweight ? or middleweight – welterweight – cant think of any, its has nothing to do with the Race homie Right now its just so happens to be no black fight right now is the number 1 contender and BTW im also black and u making us look stupid w that shit no need to act like a gangster over cyber – #Education!

        • Seriously ? says:

          Guys as a fellow black person please don’t take this dumb fuck seriously he makes the rest of us look bad.

        • Quinn says:

          Show me where Dana says “DOESN’T WANT anymore black champions.”?
          You sir, are the one being the racist.
          You are full of speculation and need to be woken up.
          Like I said before, get away from your neighborhood for the day and go explore around. It will broaden the mindset from your narrow minded insight :)

    • CB says:

      I think it’s Rampage crying..

    • Good job says:

      Thanks for setting your entire race back 20 years. It’s dumb, ignorant people like you that make everyone else look bad and make some people think MMA fans are a bunch of uneducated, hot-headed idiots.

    • ballsackface says:

      yep deffinately makes me and the rest of the black community look like we smoke crack.
      i only drink 40’s and smoke weed.
      dont do the crack son

    • g rod is retarded says:

      again you make another stupid ignortant rant that makes no sense you have to be the dumbest son of a bitch on this website, they should just ban your dumbass!

    • Unarmed spectator says:

      Wow… First off your racist… (Is this Chiek Kongo?) UFC/ Stikeforce is a business it’s about payperview sales, ratings and demographics (google it Grod). If the fight was in France then Dana would’ve thrown Chiek a bone. It was in Oklahoma! UFC key demographics WHITE Males 18-25… I’m a f–cken brown skin Pacific Islander but I understand its a white world… Stop blaming your skin color for everything, and move on. You probably never been on a boat so get over the fact your ancestors took one over here (U.S). I really think Dana likes company men (ass kissers) no matter what skin color.

    • Jonfitchisgay says:

      You sir are a fool and test tube subject. You race card morons. You have more rights at this point than white people, so enjoy it.

      • JusRaw says:

        I’m really curious how you figure blacks have more right then us whites…

        • You sir,are a moron says:

          Name one all white college,or one scholarship specifically for white people.then when you cant,name one tv channel specifically for white people…and,go……

    • unknown!!! says:

      you sound like nothing but a racist fuck head bud.90 percent of the shit you commented with was nothing but bashing whites…???..grow the fuck up and move on clearly ur one of those my ppl were slaves wankers…race has nothing to do with any of this u dumb shit.

    • scott smith says:

      Dude you need a serious therapy session with a Shrink. I feel sorry for any woman who chooses to be with you. She would probably have to be on plenty of meds to deal with you. You have issues that have obviously been festering inside you for awhile. Reality check…GET HELP! Don’t post anywhere until you really understand the nature of this business. And, by the way, Vitor is from Brazil, and there have been many other champions from other races.

  5. Quinn says:

    Hey g Rod
    Your ignorance is what keeps you literally looking at things in black and white.
    So get out of your neighborhood and go see the world! You might enjoy it.

  6. Xaninho says:

    Hahaha the comments are funnier than the story itself!

  7. Ricmus says:

    I love how the racists are always the ones to call others racist. To top it off, how did Kongo even enter your small brain? He shouldn’t even have a job in the UFC. The only color that matters to Dana is green. He wants asses in seats, and people buying it at home.

  8. Nunya says:

    Any fighter turning down a fight that can better their career is just plane idiot shit. Mitrione is half a retard already but this decision kind of upgraded him to full on idiot.

    • Beegee says:

      well cormier is kind of a beast anyway so Meathead probably figured he had no chance of beating him… but i mean, there’s always a chance, this is MMA… there’s always that x-factor, and Mitrione has knockout power… turning this fight down is really a bad move on his part. as if a win over Rampage at this point will mean anything for his career…

  9. beaverfold says:

    G rod, you are a fucking idiot. Get that chip off your shoulder. Dana doesn’t care if there black or white. The UFC is a business and Dana cares about good fights and who can deliver them. This has nothing to do with having another black champion!

  10. The Monkey Cult says:

    It doesn’t matter to me…….Mitrione sucks………

  11. Bob says:

    I still haven’t forgot what a Tool Matt Mitrione was in the house! with that said. Every time i see him fight i keep begging for him to take a beat down and I’m still waiting,

  12. johhny b says:

    G rod your a fucking GOOF. Do everyone a favour a jump off a cliff. The only racist is you. Go get some friends instead of looking online for fights you fucking keyboard warrior!!!

  13. JusRaw says:

    I’m tired of earring all you dumb ass talk about jones ducking this person and that person when Morethan 99% of you have no experience In a Ring, cage or even a fucking backyard brawl! Go to your nearest decorated mma, boxing, judo, MT or BJJ gym and call out their best student. After you pick yourself up off the ground (if you even getthat far), talk shit about taking a fight on short notice Camp or not!

  14. Pancho says:

    I like how everyone is taking g likes rods in his ass so serious. Obviously his “opinion” is either uneducated or he’s being a troll lmao
