Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft added to UFC on Versus 4 card in Pittsburgh

By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

The fight announcements for UFC on Versus 4 have been coming fast and furious today, and the UFC has added yet another bout to the June 26 card at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Penn.

Fresh off a win over Sean McCorkle at UFC Fight Night 24, Christian Morecraft will get right back into action in June when he meets former NFL player and Ultimate Fighter 10 alum Matt Mitrione.

Morecraft is now 1-1 in the UFC after the victory over McCorkle. His first fight in the Octagon was going well, as he had battered and bloodied Stefan Struve for five minutes at UFC 117 last August. However, early in the second round he got overzealous in a punching exchange with the 6'11" Struve, and was knocked out in vicious fashion.

Mitrione, on the other hand, has had nothing but success since entering the UFC. The former New York Giant and Minnesota Viking had never had a pro fight prior to The Ultimate Fighter, but has won four straight fights inside the Octagon since the show finished. His latest win came at UFC Fight for the Troops 2, where he knocked out Tim Hague in the first round of their bout.
