Ok, so apparently (a while ago) Mitrione responded to a tweet by Jenna Jameson that referenced her porn career (I have no idea what the particulars were). Jenna thought it was funny, but Tito didn't. Tito got pissed at Mitrione over it in person, and then went on HDNet's "Inside MMA" to rip into Mitrione when Tito was guest hosting in place of Bas Rutten.

Mitrione was on last week, referenced Jenna's porn career again before backing off and apologizing.

So what's your take on this? I mean, if a chick is a porn star and in the public eye, do you keep your mouth shut in all ways about her because her boyfriend is in the same industry/company as you? Is every fighter supposed to not saying anything about Jenna Jameson's previous career out of respect for Tito? Or is Tito being a meathead who should understand that if you're dating the biggest porn actress ever, you're going to have to listen to some bullshit now and then, even from guys in your business?

I mean, I get that Tito feels he has to stand up for his girl, but
1.) They've got a fucked up relationship (shocker: a fighter and a porn chick having a rocky relationship)
2.) She apparently laughed at what Mitrione said, so it seems like she was okay with it.
3.) She's Jenna fucking Jameson: I doubt Mitrione said anything that isn't tweeted to her 100 times a day.

Maybe its just a work to stir up some pre-fight hype. If not:

While I know in sports, an athlete's girl, wife, and family are off limits when comes to trash talk, I think Tito should expect his considering who he is banging. So I think he is overreacting.

That's the thing: Tito is very obviously a light heavyweight, and Mitrione is very obviously a heavyweight. There's no reasonable way they can fight each other.

Mitrione is a goof and Tito is a prick. Maybe now that Tito is "back," he'll bulk up and they can settle it in the cage.

Oh, and I'm behind Meathead all the way.

Tito is going to have to accept that pretty much every guy in the locker rooms and most of the ones in the stand have seen his wife's snatch.

All Tito has to do is weigh in over 206. I bet Tito walks around about 220. If doesn't cut, the fight can happen. I'd love to see matt make Tito eat his fucking gloves.
