"My focus has been on submission and takedown defense, not lunging into my straight left and keeping the tempo of the fight in mind. Knowing the tempo makes me very dangerous. I train to be (a) champion. I made plenty of mistakes and have made strides from my last fight. I'm looking forward to making things happen on Saturday. It'll be an emotion-filled fight. He's going to close the distance on me and I'm going to punch him really hard in the face when he tries."

Former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle, Matt Mitrione, plans on giving Marcus "Big Baby" Jones something to cry about when they meet at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale this Saturday (Dec. 5) live from "The Pearl" at the Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Who said anything about TKO'ing him standing? He's going to take him down and bully him.

Mitrione's sub D is questionable at best, but he provides some interesting challenges for Marcus. Unlike some of Marcus' other opponents we've seen I highly doubt he will be able to overpower Mitrione like that. We're talking a guy who is nearly as large as Big Baby here.

I like Marcus in the matchup, but every fight is different and every fighter presents unique challenges.

Jones by submission in the first, he's too big and strong for Mitrione who also lacks a ground game.

Marcus Jones will murk Mitrione on the ground....if McSweeney a small HW who can be at LHW took Matt down and subed him with ease Jones should kill him

I got Marcus, but If Matt gets some cardio under his belt, he could be one heck of a striker, he has a lot of power.

Say what you will about Meathead, I like him. I think he went in there with a strategy. It didn't work, but thats all it was. He seems like the type of guy that if their was an accident on the side of the road he would stop to help. James McSweeny on the other hand would just drive on by.

I liked him too.
I try not to let TUF influence my opinion of any fighter too much.
Being put into that kind of enviroment and hours of footage being cut down to less than hour for each episode can really have a huge impact on what happens in the house.



As for Meathead fighting big baby.
I think if Mitrione comes in and wants this fight he will win it.
But his ground defense will have to be solid.

Jones has an amazing ground game but unless his standup has drasticly improved he's gonna have to get this fight to the ground fast and keep it their.
I have no doubt he can submit Mitrione,but Mitrione I think can knockout him out likewise just as fast if not faster.

one interesting thing i like about TUF finales is that fighters tend to get into good camps after the show and drastically improve how they were on the show...so you really dont always know

a good example i can think of is Matt Brown and Jason Dent... i was surprised and slightly impressed as to how they improved after the show

Very true.

The show can really mislead you since it is filmed quiet a while before the actual finale. You can't be certain of who has improved at what until we actually see them get in their and fight.
