The former NFL players turned mixed martial artist, Matt Mitrione and Brendan Schaub squared off last night at UFC 165 and it was a competitive match-up — until it hit the ground.

Initially it was Mitrione walking down his former friend Schaub with heavy, quick strikes. Schaub’s chin would prove to last as he took some big blasts to the chin. It didn’t take long for “Hybrid” a slick d’arce choke to be slapped on for the finish. Ironically, and comically “Meathead” would put a thumb up just seconds before he passed out. Following the fight, the two resolved their conflicts from the build-up, trash talk.
