The former Ultimate Fighter Season 10 contender and former NFL player Matt Mitrione comments on his upcoming UFC 113 match-up against Kimbo Slice. Mitrione has nothing but respect for Kimbo, telling media that the internet street fighter was humble and a “cool ass dude.” Both TUF fighters are scheduled to clash on the UFC 113 pay-per-view main fight card on May 8th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
From Matt Mitrione:
“You know he did a lot to bring a ton of attention and ratings to TUF. I say good for him, great for him. I mean Kimbo is a cool ass dude. He is humble and from what I saw has a really good work ethic. I was really impressed with him and having nothing bad to say about Kimbo whatsoever. I think he has some power. He seems pretty quick and relatively athletic. He seems pretty aggressive. Honestly I don’t see too many things that will be bad for me. If he wants to stand and bang with me, cool! I don’t think there are too many people that can take what I throw to the chin. I’m excited; I’m long, strong and athletic. I’m in pretty good cardio shape. I don’t see any drawbacks to the fight. If I stand there like a punching bag then it might be different. I don’t see that happening.”
