Your daily dose of fighter drama


In the absence of real MMA fights, I guess we’ll have to settle for little scuffles between fighters at the UFC summit. This is Matt ‘Meathead’ Mitrione and Tito Ortiz jawin’ at eachother over something. CagePotato thinks it might have to do with these Meathead comments from the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani. Hmmm, maybe Ariel *is* the shit disturber Nick Diaz pegged him as.

“I think it’s awesome…AWESOME that the UFC is finally doing this. I think that it’s a great promotion that they’re finally letting women fight for their man’s honor. I think that’s a great thing. We all know that Tito’s gonna give some type of excuse and back out, so Jenna’s gonna have to step in and fight Bader for Tito’s honor,” Mitrione deadpanned. “Bader, be really careful because it’s a trap fight. We all know that she’s awesome off her back and she’s got phenomenal top control, but remember that she doesn’t choke easily.”

Mitrione was much more civil in the encounter, right up to the point where he realized Tito was ready to bug rather than hug:

“Well then I guess we’re about to scrap then. I’m not the one who’s getting aggressive. You’re the one that’s getting aggressive. Hey, I apologize if I hurt your feelings. I apologize if I hurt your feelings,” Mitrione offered. “Yeah, well, fuck you then. You’re the one fucking your boss and you’re the one that wants to scrap. Aren’t you the one who wants to scrap?”

And there you have it, a mini play by play of two fighters getting all up in each other’s grill. It’s like As The World Turns, bro edition.

    Which one is meathead again?? Mitrione looked ready to go! I would assume there had to be a few brush ups with all the fighters there. Surely they can’t ALL get along. But Tito’s gotta hear that shit all the time about his ho-bag.

    WTF is up with that stupid ass loud music that got pasted on the vid that prevented anything from being heard? Why did you post this garbage?

  • agentsmith

    My money’s on Meathead.

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    ^^ Agreed. It’s amazing how I’ve gone from disliking Meathead, to not caring, to really liking him as a fighter. His Mitrione Minute on the MMA hour has done wonders for his image in my mind at least.

    Likable and tough guy. Tito? Not so much.

    Cutting music into a hard-to-hear conversation sounds like a fucking awesome idea.

  • Reverend Clint

    tito is such a fag

    im starting to like meathead too

  • Redping

    yeah pretty funny that on tuf he was portrayed as an unstable idiot who made Rashad look cool, and then when he’s allowed to rerepsent himself he’s actually a pretty cool guy. I like his fighting style too, the way he smiles a lot and tries to beast them.

    Tito would just take him down though? Mitrione’s time is numbered in terms of them not giving him an opponent that isn’t Pat Barry, because i can’t see him beating anybody else

  • Slappy san

    Talk about bullshit. Neither one wanted to go. Tito should have thicker skin. Nobody forced him to marry a fucking porn star.

  • Slappy san

    And the music? Why would anyone think that’s a good idea?

  • mamoru

    Meathead is awesome.
    Don’t watch TUF, so no idea how he came off there, but I really like how he fights, and he gives a good interview too.

    Would have been more interesting if he wasn’t an old man by the time he got into fighting, but whatever.
