Mitrione: I want whoever the UFC says is next


An "elated" Mitrione talked to UFC Tonight:

"I was out for 14 months, and I'm coming off of two losses in a row, so it was a really emotional victory. Everything about it was really emotional. I was so elated. It was just a beautiful feeling. Whoever the UFC thinks is a fair and appropriate match-up for me, that's who I'm looking for."

Mitrione avoids a pink slip ... for now.

That wasn't really gauge of Mitrone's ability. The guy made a dumb mistake and paid for it. How are you going to go for a single and screw it up in a major way?

Nah, the winner of that one is a little higher on the food chain.

It looked like a jumping teabag was the method used to get the win.

I agree, he needed the win and got it, now he needs a couple more good wins.

Win doesn't = fighting another winner. With a win over Phil deFries (2-3-0, #48), Matt (ranked 26, and 6-2, on a 2 fight loss streak beforehand) shouldn't fight the winner of Gonzaga/Browne. Gonzaga is ranked 20, and is on a 2-fight win streak, with former success and popularity in the UFC. Browne is 4-1-1 in the UFC and ranked 17, only losing to the current #1 contender. Matt should happily fight the loser, or fight the likes of Rothwell/Duffee first.

Honestly I don't think the de fries win proves much for him it was a must win fight for him. I could still see him getting cut if he loses his next fight.

Yeah i remember when he said he wouldn't fight DC because of his "wrasslin".
