Brendan Schaub Fine Fighting His Friend Matt Mitrione

On The Ultimate Fighter 10, Brendan Schaub and Matt Mitrione were two of the contestants. Though they didn’t win the show, they formed a friendship and were still offered UFC contracts.

“Matt is a friend but I have zero problem, just like I told Matt, when Joe Silva and Dana White asked me to take this fight, I had zero problems taking it,” said Schaub on MMA Junkie Radio. “It didn’t even crossed my mind to be like, ‘Nah, man.’ This is the business we’re in; this is what we signed up for so I don’t have a problem separating that.”

While friends, the pair have been trading jabs on Twitter.

Schaub is 9-3 with a decision win this year to Lavar Johnson. Following two defeats, Mitrione knocked out Phil De Fries in 19 seconds.

The heavyweights are on the main card of UFC 165 this Saturday, September 21. It’s from the Air Canada Centre and FightLine will be there with the play-by-play.
