Matt Mitrione Says He’s Not Crazy, But He Must Allow The World To Believe That He Is

Matt Mitrione Ultimate Fighter 10
(‘Anybody want to go throw some furniture off the overpass?’)

You might think that you know what Matt Mitrione is doing when you watch him on “The Ultimate Fighter,” but the truth is he is straight playin’ ya’ll.  That’s the message in his Fight Magazine blog, where he once again insists that nothing is as it seems in his world, and everything is done for a reason that only makes sense to him.  In the case of last night’s episode, the reason is purely for his own amusement, because his mind is too damn active to allow him to just sit around and act like a normal human being.  It’s a blessing and a curse, people:

As far as talking about voices in my head it was kind of a joke. Nobody here likes me so let’s see what I can do to freak out the camera people. I was going stir crazy. I had no other friends in the house at the time except for Darrill and I couldn’t really tell Darrill what I was doing at the time. It was my own personal joke. It was a way to keep myself entertained. I have a really active mind and I can’t sit around and stare at the other people in a house. I gotta stimulate myself. When I was in the cage and I told T and Rashad that I had a conversation with my wife in my head I was trying so hard not to laugh as I said it.


I’m not crazy, fighting doesn’t make the voices in my head dissipate. It just lets me not have to think for a little while, it just lets me be alive. That’s the best thing about being a defensive end. You don’t think, you just react. You think too much you slow down, so just go out there and let it fly. Maybe now people will start to see that maybe I am legit and maybe there is a method to my madness.

You know what’s weird?  Mitrione says that he just pretends to be crazy to entertain himself because he has no friends in the house, and yet he doesn’t seem to consider the possibility that stuff like that might be the reason he has no friends in the house.  According to him, he’s lying to everyone and trying not to laugh at the crap he gets them to believe.  Then he’s writing a blog about how he successfully duped everyone for his own entertainment.  I get it, he’s not there to make friends.  But these are not the qualities that other people typically gravitate to.

Who cares what he said, how about Scott junk---talking more shit than an overflowing toilet bowl---goes in and gets his ass beat down for the first 3 minutes until wonderboy gassed.

If you ask me, Junk should be ashamed of himself. He was the one with experience and let the rookie almost have the ref stop the fight?

Mitrione with better cardio would have finished that fight in the first round and made Junk look like the chump he turned out to be.

"You'll see the difference between me and other fighters, I fight with me heart, me wife told me too...these other guys fight not to lose."

"umm, about me falling down every three seconds, and falling down after mitirone hammered my face in a few times...ummm...hmm, well, my last name is Junk, how cool is that!"

This guy is a fucking pussy. He talks like an idiot, and every word that comes from his useless ass is a lie and sounds retarded. Fuck this douchebag. " I was talking to my wife, cleared everything up, put the voices to rest." If I heard that faggot say that shit I would slap the shit out of him.

All he wanted was a Pepsi...

I could tell that Dbag was faking to try to justify his action.

Which makes me dislike him even more.

To the point that I could barely watch the episode.

Say what you will about Matt, but he sports the finest trailer park mustache in the land.

that was brendan schaub, who you could tell couldnt stand the bs anymore.

That scene where he's sitting a the house talking to whoever about the voices in his head and shit was funny... the other guy just kinda smiles like he's half-assed trying to be polite, and then walks away.

And Rashad's line about "the cheese fell off his cracker" cracked me the fuck up.

Mitrione should start talking in the voice of Roberto the crazy robot from Futurama. I think it works for him.

The guy is just an attention seeking douchebag. Period.

He seems to be doing his best impersonation of a fighter (from the perspective for a former NFL player). I'm sorry, but pretending you hear voices doesn't make you hard. All the notes, bullshit. Calls out people he fears, bogus injuries, etc.

He has the mental fortitude of a 7th grade bully. I want to see him get smashed, like big baby said.

I no longer have voices in my head. Its singular the one to rule them all killed and pillaged all the other voices up there. Now its a vast wasteland of voice corpses.

It's 7.62 actually.

In one of the aftermath episodes the Team Rashad guys were joking about how Team Rampage was forcing his guys to you like 3-5 miles a day before training. After awhile they wised up and stopped this. I wonder if this was during that time. If there was no tappering off the days before the fight that would explain his endurance. I dunno just a thought.

Way to put mma back a couple years TUF10. I wish I could stop watching this shitty-ass season but my tivo keeps recording it

Jarekov The Great- October 29, 2009 at 10:23 am
sick of seeing these guys gas out halfway into the first round. Matt is a tough kid though.

As soon as I saw Mitrione sparring with Tropicana the Round-Headed Baby-Man, I was like "Damn! That boy GOOD!" Matt was throwing heat, changing levels. He schooled Junk. (Forget the fact that both guys looked like they didn't train A SINGLE DAY for this fight.) Expect to see Mitrione in the UFC.

People need to remember that soap opera stuff is for the producers and editors, for the benefit of the cross-over viewers from TNA Impact. If you buy it, it says more about you than the fighters on the "reality" show.

Frailty, thy name is Mitrione
Acrocerid- October 29, 2009 at 9:53 am
Yeah, his crazy guy routine was pretty shitty. Just makes me hate him even more. Real crazy people don't think they're insane, dumbass, that's what makes them so crazy!
Sabado Gigante- October 29, 2009 at 9:52 am
This guy's philosophy is consistent with the inevitable aftermath off all Special Olympic contestants...

Win or lose, joke or insane, pulp or pulp free, you are still a retard with no regard for ninja awesomeness...

it's Pyle

This dude just never stops with the lies.

"As far as talking about voices in my head it was kind of a joke. Nobody here likes me so let’s see what I can do to freak out the camera people. "

"I’m not crazy, fighting doesn’t make the voices in my head dissipate. It just lets me not have to think for a little while, it just lets me be alive."

One sentence he's making it up the next he's confirming their real? Dude has problems with accepting the fact that he's just recycling shit he's seen in movies... Anyone else catch the Will Ferrall quote he used last night?
denver_rolling- October 29, 2009 at 9:31 am
I kept thinking a weary Wes Sims is going to discover Mitrione in the bathroom with his .762 full metal jacket. You fight like old people fuck, PILE!
Goog- October 29, 2009 at 9:29 am
I was trying so hard not to laugh when he said all that crap, too. It worked.
Cocky- October 29, 2009 at 9:28 am
He better not "stimulate himself" in the shower. Or he'll get his ass beat.
meanfinger- October 29, 2009 at 9:26 am
