Matt Mitrione Not Planning On Being Kimbo's Punching Bag

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.”
