Mitrione continues to impress with easy win over Hague

by Al Yu | source:

Mitrione displayed improved footwork early on and utilized his jab; his time spent under the tutelage of Duke Roufus was apparent.  Hague attempted a few takedowns, but they were defended well by the former football player.  Mitrione dropped Hague with a straight left halfway into the round and subsequent punches forced a referee stoppage.

“For this fight, I wanted to emulate Dominick Cruz,” said Mitrione after the fight.  “I wanted to be the 265-pound Dominick Cruz.  I love the way you fight brother, you’re elusive, and I wanted to be just like that.”

You looked good, man. If you keep tightening up the technique and keep your hands up, then how good you can be is up to you. Definitely enjoyed that last fight. The last shot that knocked Tim down didn't even look like you were throwing with your full power.

 Thank all of you for the kind words.  Im happy that I can entertain you with my devestatingly good looks and frumpy body.  Tim is a very tough fighter and I had to be careful in several instances last night.  Its fun to read yall's banterings.  Thanks for everything.

mitrione's footwork made him look like a fighter... a lot of haters don't know what it means to be a pro level athlete... I remember guys in my dojo (me included) being surprised how dominated they were when a pro football player came to train with zero experience... people want to think their 10 years of training can make up for someone being such a superior athlete.

He "stands out" from most of the other HW's in the UFC...So YES, he is OUTSTANDING. Secondly, there is no doubt he is a fuckin beast.  There can be more than 1!! It's not like anyone's calling him top 5 or anything yet.

 Hague looks like he threw in the towel after the first punch landed.
