If there is an MMA fighter who is qualified to give us some analysis on Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV match-ups, it’s Matt Mitrione.
A standout defensive tackle at Purdue University, Mitrione made the New York Giants as a walk-on. He spent four years in the NFL with the Giants and the Minnesota Vikings before trading in his gridiron aspirations for his dream to one day fight in the Octagon, which he again made a reality through determination and hard work in spite of the odds stacked against him.
Although the brunt of his time these days is split between his new gym in Indianapolis and at home with his family, ‘Meathead’ still follows the sport that he first fell in love with as a boy.
In this exclusive video breakdown he did for us through his main sponsor, our friends at Hayabusa, Mitrione details which team he thinks will take the trophy on Sunday.
