Dana White Sickened After Matt Mitrione Turns Down Daniel Cormier Fight

UFC President, Dana White is irate after UFC heavyweight prospect, Matt Mitrione turned down a crossover fight with Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix winner, Daniel Cormier, reminding fans that “the real guys fight anybody”.

White, speaking via MMAJunkie, said:

“It fucking makes me sick. Listen, you don’t want big opportunities, I hear you. I get it, then. All I can say is, I guess he doesn’t want big opportunities. I get it. Duly noted.

“He wants to fight a guy who weighs 205, but doesn’t want to fight the guy who’s the real heavyweight, the legitimate guy who’s ranked. And Mitrione’s not getting any younger. Fuckin’ insane. It makes no sense to me, and it’s insane. I’m a little bummed out by it. We’ll figure it out. Yeah, (he’s already got a fight booked). He said, ‘I’ll just take that one.’”

“Cormier will fight anybody. The guys who are the real guys fight anybody, man. They’ll fight anybody.”
