Matt Mitrione has been called a lot of things in his short time in the fight game. A whiner, a faker, a wannabe, and of course most notably... a meathead. But come this Saturday night (May 8) at UFC 113 in Montreal, he's looking to add one more moniker to the list... a mixed martial artist. The former NFL player has a rare opportunity in front of him to defeat a man who is more widely recognized than just about anybody in the sport. A man known for his persona far more than his fighting prowess. That man is of course none other than Kimbo Slice. Whether or not a win over Slice is impressive in the eyes of true fight fans, it's a win that will undoubtedly increase his name recognition. And at this point in his young MMA career, it's more than Mitrione can ask for. Mitrione spoke to Larry Pepe on this week's episode of Pro MMA Radio about getting into MMA, Kimbo, and The House.

Sound advice from Jason Werth. I still don't think that 80% of the population could recognize Seth Petruzelli but maybe his grandmother watches a lot of MMA.
