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.
