Matt Mitrione and Roy Nelson have been fairly friendly ever since being castmates on The Ultimate Fighter 10 nine years ago. Even after they fought and Nelson knocked out Mitrione in 2012.
Those good feelings have come to an end, Mitrione told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour.
Mitrione beat Nelson by majority decision in the main event of Bellator 194 on Friday night at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut to advance to the semifinals of the Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix tournament. Mitrione won the first two rounds on all the judges’ cards, while Nelson won the third. One judge, Dave Tirelli, scored the third 10-8 for Nelson, making the fight a draw on his card.
