Matt Mitrione got his first win in almost two years today at UFC on Fuel 9 in Sweden. The fight lasted just 19-seconds as opponent Phil De Fries just kind of ran into Mitrione’s leg and fell to the ground. I guess you could compare it to someone running into the wall as Mike Goldberg and Kenny Florian did no less than 12-times each. Mitrione then jumped on top of him and started hitting him with elbows and punches and the fight was stopped. De Fries has now lost 3 of his last 4 fights by knockout – all in the first round.
Guess he made the most of it.
Briefly a tense moment for Chicago fans.
The captain passed on Yankees-Jays tonight.
Outlier of a season, or end of a generation of stars?
