Matt Mitrione Wishes He Would Have Fought Kongo Like Diaz Fought Penn

“It sucked. It was boring. I want to put on exciting fights. As soon as I watched it I thought, ‘That was exactly how I should have fought Cheick.’ Exactly how Nick Diaz fought B.J. is how I should have fought Cheick. Nick was aggressive and constantly threw punches at B.J. even if B.J. didn’t want to commit… Both of our performances — I think it was just a dull fight. It was just a lot of chasing him down. It was a learning experience but it sucks at the same time. I’d rather get my ass kicked in dramatic fashion than lose with the crowd booing. I can tell you it won’t happen again. If I lose again it’s going to be because I get my ass kicked in an ugly, ugly way.”

    I think Chieck would have lost in dramatic fashion had you fought that way!

  2. Rafi Bomb, homie says:

    Now that’s spoken like a fighter who’s about to unleash hell. I can’t wait to see if he holds to his word or not. Nothing like a fighter who loses and gets booed because he didn’t fight. Even watching him train would be a treat.

      This will be exciting. That was what Lyte said when he lost to Serra. Then he became one of the most exciting guys in Welterweight. Can’t wait for Mitrione’s next fight.

  3. El Charlie says:

    He’ll be back guns blazing in no time. Until then Meathead …

  4. Me says:

    put meathead on the prelims if and until he does what he says and proves to not be all talk. throw donald in the main card, he fights.

    • andyboy says:

      exactly, a lot of guys claim this “id rather get my ass kicked than lose a decision” yet they dont commit to flurries or any type of submission attempts that leave you in a vulnerable position if you miss….like PRIDE fights use to be. But yea he should be on undercards until he proves what he’s sayin.

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      Until that fight, it’s been fireworks from meathead. Don’t make it seem like he has a bad track record…

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      What are you talking about you clown! have you seen any of his other fights. This was just a lack of experience and Cheick kept running away from him and not engaging and then used his experience to score the take down and a few decent shots. He def deserves to be on a main card and is destined to be amongst the best in the division.

  5. Knows whatbhe is saying says:

    Dumba**es hes knocked everyone in the ufc he faced until runaway kongo. know sh*t before you open your mouths

  6. BJ PENCIL says:

    yeah… kongo really should’ve sealed the deal with his powerful right hand. this whole card really sucked except for the main event. BJ PENN is the man!

  7. Me says:

    oh yeah? and who did he face? shit competition. he faced his “toughest opponent” and he didnt do anything. there are plenty of ufc heavy weights that would show you how good he really is. he has potential but hes got a ways to go which is why they dont throw him in there with the elite. runaway kongo? they were both equally apprehensive to get in there and fight, that was obvious to any half wit, except for meathead cock riders like you. do everyone a favor and dont open your mouth.

    • Dan says:

      People try to blame it all on Mitrione. Funny thing is, for 2 and a half rounds Kongo was running scared. He wanted nothing to do with mitrione.
      Mitrione obviously needs to improve (like he said in the interview), on wrestling, take downs and take down defense.
      You guys also fail to realize he’s only been doing this for a short time. like a year or so?.
      If anything i blame kongo for the horrible fight. He’s a veteran, Supposed to be an amazing standup fighter, and he was running the whole fight.

  8. Digs says:

    definitely no co-main event material.


  9. Ryan says:

    Matt Mitrione hasnt displayed any real boxing though, but he can kick box

  10. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Meathead let me down! If he wasn’t too preoccupied trying to do his best impression of Anderson Silva mindgames 101, we would have had a KO on our hands. Instead Meathead was afraid of Kongo and he got beat down for it. Pat Barry vs Meathead!

  11. Heath says:

    Matt should go train with the Diaz brothers for a little while. They seemed to get along well and it would strengthen his boxing and jiu jitsu. Win/win situation.

  12. Fortyb4five says:

    When Jds loses to Cain have Jds vs Meathead as a comeback for Jds.

  13. desmond says:

    Im really starting to like that meathead! I look forward to seeing his next fight,.more so than I am to see kango!

  14. Dirk Digler says:

    jonsey = greasy fart

  15. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Pay?! Uh, you talking about Leben vs Munoz, cuz I thought that was a free card?

  16. jayjay walleye says:

    Last I checked this was a fan web site, not a dickhead hater site. Go down the list and see how many fighters lasted more than one round with Dias and you will see that BJ put on a very impressive performance…it was a stand up battle. BJ was rocked but not knocked down or out…in any of his fights…yup…sounds lazy….jonsey should be shot with his own shit.

  17. Brave Reply says:

    U dumb shit! you just got OWNED

  18. tony says:

    cheick kongo is shit, he is meant to be a gun on his feet and all he did was run. there wasn’t to much more matt mitrione could do, he shouldn’t have been chasing him down and he also stuck to his word and never took it to the ground even tho he could have.

    • MMA Scholar says:

      meh, I dunno dude. Mitrione looked like shit too; they both did. I don’t really give a shit what either of these dudes are doing next. The fight only proved that 1) they make a boring matchup 2) they are well below top division fighters.
