Quoteworthy:

"I’ve played football for so long, I know how to watch film. I know what I’m looking for. I see tells. I pick up on things. Actually, as a matter of fact, three days ago I had my eureka moment for Tim, where I finally understood exactly how to beat Tim. This really is make or break for Tim and for myself, actually, too. There’s a good chance that if he doesn’t come out and put on a hell of a show and win, he might not ever be brought back. So I’m expecting the best Tim that’s ever come around. I expect a guy who’s in really good shape. I’m at the point now where I’m like 274 pounds. I’m huge and I’m probably 8 percent body fat. I’m lean and I’m ready to go. I’m full of power, full of cardio and I’m ready to let this thing fly."

Former NFL player and budding mixed martial artist Matt Mitrione puts his perfect (3-0) record on the line against Tim Hague at the UFC "Fight for the Troops 2" event on Saturday night (Jan. 22). After knocking out fellow contestant Marcus Jones at the 2009 TUF 10 Finale, Mitrione ended the short-lived Octagon career of Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson via second round TKO at UFC 113 last May. "Meathead" followed that up by deporting "The Mexicutioner" from UFC 119 via unanimous decision and could find himself against a top five heavyweight if he finishes "The Thrashing Machine" in convincing fashion. Is Mitrione for real? Or just real lucky?
