Matt Mitrione (pictured) and Brendan Schaub don’t meet until July 27 at “UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga,” but that didn’t stop the heavyweights from exchanging pleasantries on Twitter late Monday night.
As expected, Mitrione kicked things off, then issued a tweet that he subsequently deleted because he discovered he might get him in trouble (again). Schaub, who is one of MMA’s more polite fighters, was more than willing to return fire on this occasion.
Schaub even knew exactly which button to push to get “Meathead” heated up.
I don’t recall there being any beef between the two when they were castmates on “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights,” but the bad blood is definitely flowing now.
Here is a recap of their conversation:
Mitrione: Hey @BrendanSchaub you asked to fight me, cool. Them sparse whiskers you grow can’t hide that chin, son! #YaDunPhuckedUp
Schaub: @mattmitrione my man remember when you pissed your pants on TUF and you said fighting wasn’t for you. I do and Well it still isn’t.
Schaub: @mattmitrione I didn’t ask to fight you. Your being disciplined remember? Well.. joe silva thought of a terrible match up for you.
Mitrione: Planned parenthood should stop giving out birth control & start giving out copies of @BrendanSchaub ‘s 15 min. dry humping of Lavar Johnson
Mitrione: Someone asked me if @BrendanSchaub is married. Seriously? I saw his Jiu Jitsu match. How you gonna get married when you refuse to engage?
Mitrione: @BrendanSchaub looks like Adam Sandler f—ed Corky from “Life Goes On” [Tweet has since been deleted]
Schaub: I might look like adam Sandler/corkey mix your wife when we did appearances together sure seemed to like it. How’s that going by the way?
Mitrione: Nothing and I mean nothing pisses me of more than someone I considered a friend doing me dirty. I Gotchu @BrendanSchaub #BenedictArnold
Schaub: @mattmitrione #dosomethingaboutit
Mitrione: Don’t count on seeing @BrendanSchaub on the Maury Povich show anytime soon. Cuz after we fight next month, he’ll know exactly who his dad is
Mitrione: Already discovered @BrendanSchaub ‘s weakness (other than having no chin) That’s right, body shots pic.twitter.com/ewhI0NuMvf
