UFC 113 Video Hype: The ‘Meathead’ Has Two Faces…


First, there’s the Matt Mitrione you thought you knew from TUF 10: The house snitch, the crazy guy, the brain-damaged faker, the unbearable heel of a TUF season in which we all expected Wes Sims to be the unbearable heel. In this promo for Saturday’s UFC 113 event in Montreal, Mitrione (who will be facing Kimbo Slice) acknowledges that most people who watched him on the show think he’s a "straight douchebag." However: "I’m misread quite often…I’m probably a little bit cooler than most people give me credit for." Sure Meathead, it was just the editing, right?

It seems like the UFC wants Kimbo to be the good guy in this matchup. Slice has given up sex, smoking, and drinking for his training camp, which makes him as good a role model for the children of the world as anybody else. But then there’s this video profile from IndySportsNation, which reveals a few things we didn’t know about Mitrione…

So, "Meathead"’s father is a psychiatrist, his mother is extremely educated, he held a corporate gig for a while after college, then launched his own nutritional supplement company. Did we learn any of that from TUF 10? Not that I can remember. Instead, the show defined him by his NFL background, then set him up as the house villain at the earliest opportunity. Look, I’m not convinced that Mitrione isn’t at least half-nuts. But I think this is an important reminder that you can’t really judge someone by how they behave in the completely artificial setting of a reality show, where all the information you get about a person is hand-picked. Maybe we were wrong about Meathead. Maybe we all owe Meathead an apology. Meathead, we’re sorry. Forgive us, Meathead?

Coming up: Does Darill Schoonover actually have normal-sized breasts?

I'm with you on this Drano, Kimbo seems like quite a likable dude, as long as your not squaring off against him in someones backyard, and Meathead should be renamed fuckhead, I hope Kimbo kerb stomps him.
And Fuck the grammer/spelling nazi's keep the Potato free!!!
And Jimbonic's , thanks man, i wont waste any more time on that one.
dranokills- May 5, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Win or lose, Kimbo gets laid afterwards. Can't say the same for MeatFeet.

Mitrone should get Aqua Teen Hungar Force to sponsor him... he could be Meatwad, his corner men could be Sokodju as Frylock and Tito's massive head as Master Shake. They would be fighting against Kimbo playing the role of the neighbor Carl... he's already go the wife-beater and hairy back... yeah... Black Carl.
fatbellyfrank- May 4, 2010 at 9:48 pm
@dran, "beating the window licker" thats fucken funny shit right there, dont care who you are
Dr Garbo- May 4, 2010 at 9:39 pm
MeatHead by gogoplata in the 2nd
dranokills- May 4, 2010 at 9:12 pm
I gotta go with KO by Kimbo.
Of course beating the window licker on the bus isn't gonna make Kimbo any friends or fans, but damnit UFC is paying him to beat up a retard, so it is said, so it shall be done.

Machiavelli>> Thanks for making sure my abs were in focus. One has to display one's abs to best effect whilst shoppin for toilet paper at the walmart.

This fight will be the first nail in Kimbo's coffin. Good riddance.

Mitrione by first round TKO.
Ratel- May 4, 2010 at 6:04 pm
^^ dude, +1 for the last sentence
fatbellyfrank- May 4, 2010 at 5:35 pm
Yeah, I'm hoping Kimbo takes this one, and Meathead IS a fucken dickweed, I dont care how many company's he had , and what the fuck is the relevance of what his parents did? he's a smart ass who thinks his weirdo shit is cool and funny.
Kimbo via Shiv/semi automatic in the first
TheMadness- May 4, 2010 at 4:39 pm
Eh. I find Kimbo to be massively entertaining, but I don't know if he'll land the knockout punch first.
stopdrinkingpee- May 4, 2010 at 4:35 pm
I don't think the show "set him up as the house villain at the earliest opportunity". Didn't Matt pretty much take care of that himself? This is a guy whose opponents despised him, whose teammates called him Snitch, and whose coach called him Meathead. It doesn't take clever editing to make him out as a villain.

I am looking forward to next week's piece on the misunderstood Browning Brothers.
MaximumSpaniard- May 4, 2010 at 4:27 pm
I'm a big fan of Kimbo and he's the hometown hero (I'm from Miami as well) but Mitrione is going to take this one pretty easily by KO.
Ratel- May 4, 2010 at 3:59 pm
You know what sucks? I'll tell you what sucks: knowing that a semi-retarded, mumbling-fuck, spooge fluttering-in-his-throat d-bag like Mitrione is going to beat Slice. Sure, Ferg is in over his head, and is competing above his level. Doesn't mean I want him to lose.
KingAtRock- May 4, 2010 at 3:56 pm
So this is what the ufc has come to.. hyping kimbo versus some random tuf contest loser.


Mitrione says hes going to wait for kimbo to get frustrated and make a move.. did he see the Houston Alexander fight?!
Machiavelli- May 4, 2010 at 3:44 pm
Sorry, Rex13's pic should have been at: hxxp://

I caught this image of him at "The people of Walmart" website
chewbakker82- May 4, 2010 at 3:37 pm
I'm going for Mitrione because he's a former New York Giant, and because I'm just tired of hearing about Kimbo Slice. I mean he's just old news man. this dude got knocked out by a jab by Seth Petruzelli and yet he still thinks he's some bad mofo who's got the skills to be a factor. Mitrione's gonna knock his head off.
willyshizzle- May 4, 2010 at 3:29 pm
Kimbo is orverrated and is most likely to lose
