Former TUF 10 fighter Matt Mitrione made a statement in more ways than one during his bout with Joey Beltran on the UFC 119 Spike TV prelims. Not only did the man known as “Meathead” edge out a victory over Beltran, while taking home “Fight of the Night” honors, Mitrione also managed to end off his post-fight interview by firing his own agent Malki Kawa on national television for not bringing in enough sponsorship dollars. Nothing like getting the axe in front of millions of fight fans.
