Matt Mitrione (6-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) was suspended by the UFC for a short period, but now meets fellow TUF: Heavyweights competitor Brendan Schaub (9-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) at UFC on FOX 8. Mitrione understood his mistake and made an official apology for what had been said about transgender fighter Fallon Fox.
"I want to apologize for my hurtful comments about Fallon Fox and a group within our society which, in truth, I know nothing about" Said Mitrione "I also want to apologize to Lorenzo Fertitta, Dana White and everyone associated with the UFC. Anyone can say, 'I'm sorry' to get themselves out of trouble. That's not the kind of person I want to be.”
