PLAYERS: Matt Mitrione
Matt Mitrione (pictured) posted one of the fastest, and unusual, knockouts in Octagon history at UFC on FUEL TV 9. After stuffing Philip De Fries’ first takedown attempt, De Fries appeared to KO himself on Mitrione’s leg when he shot for his next try. Mitrione immediately pounced and dropped several elbows and punches to seal the deal. “Meathead” snapped his two-fight losing skid with the gimme victory. Unfortunately for De Fries, the heavyweight has now dropped three of his last four, including two straight. UFC on FUEL TV 9 took place inside Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

And what would a 34-year-old Mitrione do then? Would he even keep fighting...

Matt Mitrione has been suspended by the UFC for trans-phobic remarks about Fallon Fox.

  This is such a gray area I don’t even know how to comment on it. If I don’t think Fallon Fox should fight women because she’s still partially a man (in my opinion) is that trans-phobic? How are we supposed to even figure out the situation of whether or not she can fight other women? Is it unfair? Honestly, I don’t even know anymore. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but Matt...
