UFC Vegas 12’s Bryce Mitchell: You Won’t See Me In Here for a Little While


Las Vegas, NV — Bryce Mitchell passed what was quite frankly the toughest test of his career Saturday at UFC Vegas 12. Against featherweight staple Andre Fili, Mitchell got a grueling fight with an opponent capable of exploding back up when taken down. And who had a clear edge on the feet.

Mitchell (14-0), however, set a personal best for takedowns, and managed to take home a hard-fought unanimous decision win. Now 5-0 inside the octagon, after joining the promotion via The Ultimate Fighter, Mitchell is in a good spot. Even if he was a bit down on his performance.

“I could have done better in certain positions. He flying knee’d me, I didn’t want that to happen,” Mitchell told media outlets including Cageside Press following the fight. “I broke my hand in the first round, and kept swinging with it. I was like ‘the hell with it, I’m gonna keep throwing it.’ I knew something was wrong with my hand. I just envisioned myself doing better.”

Mitchell believes he broke the hand “on an overhand left,” he said. And as a result of the injury “I’m going to have to take a little while off,” he said. “I ain’t got no choice. So you won’t see me in here for a little while. But I’m going to heal up the best I can, and come back as strong as  I can.”

Asked to evaluate his growth in 2020, a year that saw him pick up two wins inside the octagon, Mitchell replied “I keep getting better ever fight, and every fight, there’s something else that I feel like I did wrong, and I want to fix it. And I’m just going to keep trying to improve myself as much as I can, and heal my body right now. Because I’ve got some healing to do.”

  1. So proud of Bryce Mitchell for addressing what is happening in Arkansas with our governor becoming a tyrant and stomping all over the Constitution. I DO NOT WEAR A MASK. My husband had blood cancer explode in him the end of last April due to being oxygen deficient from wearing a mask in March and April. June 12 he was DEAD. No one warned us that he should not be wearing one all of the time (he was already oxygen deficient due to sinus polyps). I am sooo angry! In almost 50 years of marriage, he was so stinking healthy that he didn’t go to doctors and had never been in a hospital. THE MASKS STARTED HIM DOWN THE ROAD TO DEATH. Don’t just swallow what you are told. https://www.facebook.com/Covid-policies-killed-Clarence-Messenger-110264277496689/
