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.
On his international debut, no less.
He’s still only 22. Remember that.

If you’re willing to talk trash, the UFC is willing to promote you.
No beard? No sign.
We’re talking about practice.
