Matt Mitrione Feels No Pressure Heading Into Kimbo Slice Fight

MONTREAL -- Kimbo Slice might not have as big of a bullseye on his back as he once did, but there's no denying that a win over the former street fighting legend can put a young fighter on the map. That's the position 1-0 Matt Mitrione finds himself in on Saturday night. But if you think the former NFL lineman feels any pressure to produce "a Kimbo fight," especially considering Slice's lackluster UFC debut against Houston Alexander, think again.

Mitrione discussed his approach to fighting Slice and how much he has improved since his run on The Ultimate Fighter at Thursday's UFC 113 press conference. Watch his comments below.
