Matt Mitrione Not Planning On Being Kimbo's Punching Bag

0

Matt Mitrione talks about Kimbo Slice, his former TUF cast mate, and the man he'll meet in the Octagon at UFC 113:

“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.”
