On Saturday, UFC fighter Bryce Mitchell remained undefeated after winning his bout with Matt Sayles by submission. After the win, Mitchell had a message for Donald Trump.
Mitchell moved to 12-0 in the featherweight division. After the win, he vowed that he would take on any politician that Donald Trump wanted him to beat up.
“I want to thank God for my family, my friends, my teammates,” Mitchell began. “And Donald Trump, I’m up here in D.C. If you need help whooping some politician, holler at me brotha, I’ll do it for free,” he shouted into the microphone.
He would then go on to offer to buy Trump dinner.

Mitchell, who is from Arkansas, defeated Sayles with a movie he has named the “Twister.” He says he learned the move by watching YouTube videos.
“Just seen it on YouTube,” he said Monday. “Eddie Bravo gives such a detailed description of how to do it, I mean, anybody can learn [it] on YouTube… Nobody believes me — I get stuff on YouTube all the time.”
He says that he had never tried the move in a fight and wasn’t going to until the opportunity presented itself against Sayles.
“I’d never felt a twister with that much tension on it. I don’t know what gives first — it f—ks your hips, your back and your neck up,” Mitchell said. “His back felt like a big rubber band — I felt resistance, but I felt myself pulling through the resistance. I felt tension, and then I felt it releasing, and I felt more tension and it just felt like I was tearing something.”

Trump is reportedly a fan of cage-fighting and attended a UFC championship fight last month at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Dana White the UFC president praised for Trump and claimed during a press conference that Trump wanted to attend a fight the day after he won the 2016 election.
“Everything that ever happened to me in my career, Trump was the first guy to pick up the phone and reach out to me,” White said.
