Matt Mitrione Denies He was a "Snitch"

"When I got thrown under the bus, the only thing I could do was start to manipulate everything and make sure that I get the best possible matchup for me from now on. That's the only way I could make the situation right, and that's where all the dramatics came around."

Mitrione was limited on what he could reveal about future happenings in "The Ultimate Fighter" house, but he admitted that not wanting to face Marcus Jones did play a role in his actions. However, Mitrione insists it was just a small factor.

"Marcus is a ground guy," Mitrione said. "For me being very new to the sport, I've been literally, to date, I've been training for less than a calendar year. And I have no wrestling. I never wrestled in high school. So a ground guy isn't really ideal for me. That was, I guess, a portion of it. But it wasn't a major part."

**************


"It was part of a strategy thing, but it was more of a plan of sorts," Mitrione said. "Once I got thrown under the bus, it was, 'To hell with everything here. To hell with everybody else here. I'm here for myself.'

"As soon as the first round is over, the teams go out the window and everybody is there for themselves. It's a singular prize, single prize money, and that's how I looked at it. From that point on, that's when a lot of the variables start to kick in."

Mitrione said as the season plays on, his initial intentions may become more well understood.

"It will be a while," Mitrione said. "But honestly, if people think I'm a snitch, if they think I did it for whatever reason, then that's their opinion. I know why I did it, and I'm telling you legitimately why I did it, so if that doesn't say that I wasn't a snitch and that I was working strategy in it, then that's their issue. It's not mine.
Sounds like Mitrione tried to set up a Team Dagger type of alliance w/ Junk, but got screwed.

WTF, where do they find these herbs? I think the TUF picks decent fighters and throws in fresh meat in the mix to make some fighters look better than they are. Why the hell is this guy on TUF with no ground, no wrestling, completely new to the sport? I mean the same can be said about Kimbo but at least the guy got the fcking balls to be a fighter and fight the favorite. What a bitch I hope Matt gets dry humped and elbowed punishment style.

Kimbo has no experience and what about those 2 horrid football players on team Rampage. I agree tough that the UFC could at least take the time to pick fighters coming out of actual martial-arts.

I think this whole "snitch" thing is really high-school drama. I can't believe they would make such a big deal about it as if what he did was so bad. I snitched without thinking as well but it seems that people can't accept human mistakes. They pick on him but I'd put my hand on a flame that they to could very well do the exact same thing.

And Rampage is such an asshole.... Seriously these guys never went trough adulthood.
