Matt Mitrione does media appearance barefooted because shoes were not Reeboks

It looks like Matt Mitrione did the best he could on the fly to appease the heads monitoring the Reebok and UFC sponsorship deal. The UFC heavyweight veteran appeared barefooted for the media and spoke with Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting wearing “Js” and a polo shirt.

Mitrione would have to take his shoes off and cover his polo with a Reebok jacket to be in uniform code and perhaps avoid a fine from Reebok.

Check out the video above as he sheds some light on the situation as well as his upcoming fight with Travis Browne at UFC Fight Night 81 in Boston on Jan 17.
