Heavyweights Matt Mitrione, Brendan Schaub Booked for UFC on Fox 8
Just over two weeks after the UFC suspended Matt
for making transphobic comments about transgender
fighter Fallon Fox
“Meathead” now has his next fight booked.
Mitrione will face fellow “Ultimate Fighter” Season 10 alum
Schaub at UFC on Fox
8, which takes place July 27 at Seattle’s Key Arena. Headlined
by a flyweight title showdown pitting Demetrious
Johnson against John Moraga,
the evening’s Fox-broadcast main draw will also see Miesha Tate
square off with Liz
Carmouche in a pivotal women’s 135-pound affair.
Mitrione, 34, was handed an undisclosed fine and suspension from
the UFC after making derogatory remarks directed at Fox in a public
interview, calling the transgender fighter a “lying, sick,
sociopathic, disgusting freak.” The former “TUF” competitor
rebounded from back-to-back defeats in his most recent outing,
knocking out British grappler Philip De
Fries in just 19 seconds earlier this month at UFC on Fuel TV
Schaub, 30, also halted a two-fight losing skid in his most recent
contest, taking a grinding unanimous decision from Lavar
Johnson on Feb. 23 at UFC 157. Prior to that victory, “The
Hybrid” suffered consecutive knockout defeats, first falling to
former Pride Fighting Championships titlist Antonio
Rodrigo Nogueira and then stumbling against Ben Rothwell
in his lone appearance of 2012.
