Matt Mitrione Lambastes Christiane Moorecraft At UFC Live 4

Matt Mitrione bludgeoned, battered, beat and bloodied Christian Moorecraft at UFC Live 4. It wasn't a completely one-sided fight as Morecraft got a couple of take downs, landed some sharp punches standing and acquitted himself well. But it wasn't enough to make it past the second round against Mitrione.

UFC on Versus 4 results: Matt Mitrione defeated Christian Morecraft via strikes (TKO) at 4:28 of round 2.

Mitrione tricked Morecraft out of position with a smooth feint to set up a potent left hook. Two more punches filled out the combination and dropped Morecraft. Mitrione knew his man was beaten and walked away from a falling Morecraft before he hit the ground.

Mitrione had dropped Morecraft with a laser-guided left hand in the first round, but Morecraft survived and managed to divert Mitrione into a tussle on the ground for the duration of the round. Mitrione, a former offensive lineman in the NFL. has emerged as something of an unlikely contender in the talent-starved heavyweight division.

I'd love to see Mitrione tested against Dave Herman in a fight or two. The winner would become a high profile contender.
