The "very, very dangerous" Matt Mitrione is ready to scrap wherever the fight goes at UFC 137Posted on October 18, 2011, 03:54 PM by Joey Santosus
"I feel like I am a very, very dangerous human being right now. I feel better right now than I ever have in my life. If Cheick's lucky enough to beat me, he beat the very best product I could put out there. The very best. I feel that I am extremely dangerous anywhere inside of an 8-sided cage. Whether it's up against the fence, on the floor, up on top of the cage, underneath the cage, I feel wherever the hell it's going to go, I'm going to be there ready to scrap. I feel that Coach Neil put so much time and energy in me that if Kongo can get it to the ground, he won't want to keep it there. If he does, I'll tap him. I promise, I'll tap him or I'll break something, but I'll get something done." - For more from Matt Mitrione's appearance on "The MMA Hour," visit MMAFighting.com
Cheick Kongo will need Lady Luck on his side if he plans to survive the inescapable danger that he'll be presented with on October 29th. Of course, that's when he'll be locked inside the cage with the "very, very dangerous human being" known as "Meathead."
Currently undefeated in his five-fight professional career, Matt Mitrione will look to propel himself into the title mix when he takes on his toughest test to date in Kongo at UFC 137. And though all but one of his victories have come by way of some form of knockout, Mitrione assures that the Frenchmen will be at risk of bodily harm no matter where the fight goes. So what do you think LowKick'ers? Is the former pro-football player turned mixed martial artist ready for the upper end of the division or will Kongo deny his passage through the gateway to contendership?
