Matt Mitrione-Brendan Schaub Latest Addition To UFC On FOX 8

Heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Brendan Schaub will test their skills against one another this July, as UFC officials have added them to UFC on FOX 8.

The bout will pit the former season-mates of The Ultimate Fighter against each other on July 27 from Seattle. No word where the fight will land as far as the main or prelim card.

Mitrione (6-2), of course, has been in the news for his suspension handed down by the UFC after comments made concerning transgender fighter Fallon Fox.

While most feel Mitrione was let off easy, the UFC has yet to really distinguish what they did behind the scenes to Mitrione.

Schaub (9-3) has posted a 5-3 UFC record since making it to the finals of TUF. Both fighters are also ex-NFL players.
