UFC on Versus 4 Results: Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft, Round 1
You've gotta love Matt "Meathead" Mitrione—homey knows how to sell a fight, finding reason to harbor animosity against even the most unheralded of foes...like Christian "The World of" Morecraft.
You've also got to respect the way he's transitioned from a professional football career (or at least the whispers of one) to one in mixed martial arts, where he is thriving.
And he continues to thrive in the first five minutes against Morecraft.
The big fellow from Purdue simply took his opponent apart on the feet, scoring early and often with those big paws of his. A straight left put down early in the first and set the tone for the rest of the round. Meathead was too quick and just elusive enough to land and escape, land and escape. He mixed his strikes well, landing with nice kicks to legs and midsection.
Perhaps most impressive was Matt's level of relaxation—he seemed like he was strolling on the beach even when he got caught by straight right from Christian.
Easy 10-9 round for Mitrione, maybe even a 10-8 after Meathead wobbled and put the World of Morecraft back on the canvas, then knocked his mouthpiece out as the round expired.
