Mitrione was on the MMA hour last week practically begging to fight anyone because he doesnt have any money and then a week later he turns down a fight against Cormier? what a tit. Cormier would ******* bury him like, but still it was a win/win situation for matt.

Dana White is the one who's ******* insane: He keeps making BS nonsensical matchups like Sonnen-Bones, Belfort-Bones, and Mitrione-Cormier. If Strikeforce is such a joke that you can't even find a SF fighter to face Cormier and you can't even hold a card together, then just fold the damn organization already like you should have done a long time ago...

I don't like eiter. That's how the fan in Dana feels and something the president of the company shouldn't say out loud.

What do you mean nothing to lose? He was going to lose the fight...badly.



Fight a top 5 HW who is much better you on like 2 weeks notice when you are an up and coming guy yourself who the UFC has totally neglected to get fights? Yeah OK.


Yes, how dare you inexperienced mid-level HW? HOW DARE you not want to get steamrolled on national television coming off of a loss to a top tier fighter? WHAT ARE YOU CRAZY? I mean, you could make like 40k or so fighting some guy who's more approriate, like Phil De Fries or something but we refuse to get you fights all year long, HOW DARE YOU NOT CATER TO US AND TAKE THE BIGGEST FIGHT OF YOUR CAREER ON 2 WEEKS NOTICE! YOU SUCK MITRIONE!

Dana needs to shut the **** up. He's legitimately bordering on retarded these days.

They folded the SF HW division. Cormier and Barnett each have one fight left but the other HW's are gone.

Change contracts

Why don't they start signing fighters to new contracts.

You get paid 35K minimum/50K win and have to take any fight we give you or you can get a 15/30k contract like the ones they currently give out and have a choice.

Seriously, I'm pro-union, but this isn't even a union and the fighters are dictating most fights nowaways.

Guess it's becoming more like boxing.

Mitrione's grappling and wrestling are awful. If his opponent isn't willing to sling leather, he loses. Cormier would have taken him down and controlled him for three rounds like everyone smart does.
