Matt Mitrione wants Ben Rothwell or Cheick Kongo after four straight wins

UFC heavyweight slugger, Matt Mitrione wants to fight former IFL star, Ben Rothwell and/or Wolfslair MMA Academy fighter, Cheick Kongo after posting his fourth straight win since joining the ranks of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Mitrione, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“I’m really starting to find out what my body wants to fight like. Most people get it out of the way in their amateur fights, but my amateur fights are my pro fights. I’m learning what my athleticism will let me get away with.”

“If Joe Silva calls me up and thinks I’m ready, let’s do it. Guys like Rothwell and Kongo, those both would be fun fights. I think fans would want to see both. They’re both big names. I understand there’s a hierarchy. But I’m still going to have a good time.”
