Pros react after Alexander Flores defeats Matt Mitrione at Triller Triad Combat event

Tonight’s Triller Triad Combat event was co-headlined by a heavyweight contest featuring Matt Mitrione squaring off with Alexander Flores.

Mitrione (13-9 MMA) was looking to snap a four-fight losing skid at Globe Life Field on Saturday. The former UFC and Bellator fighter had last competed back in July, where he suffered a TKO loss to Tyrell Fortune.

Meanwhile, Alexander Flores (18-3-1 Boxing) was returning to action for the first time in twelve months this evening. The heavyweight veteran had suffered a first round knockout loss to Luis Ortiz in his most previous effort.

Tonight’s Triller Triad Combat co-main event proved to be a solid back and forth affair. Matt Mitrione utilized the clinch on frequent occasion but also found success while blitzing his opponent with flurries of punches. In round two, the former MMA fighter was able to drop Flores with an uppercut (see that here). However, the boxer was able to find his groove in the later rounds and went on to outwork Mitrione for the final few minutes.
