It may have cost him an opportunity to compete, but Matt Mitrione appreciates Bellator looking after his best interests in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Mitrione (13-7 MMA, 4-2 BMMA) was one of the fighters who was set to compete at Bellator 241 on March 13 in Uncasville, Conn. The event was held right around the time the coronavirus outbreak got serious in the United States, with the NBA postponing its season then nearly every major sports organization following shortly thereafter. Bellator 241 was originally moved behind closed doors with no fans, but then on the day of the event, the decision was made by Bellator president Scott Coker to pull the plug entirely . The card was postponed to an undermined date, and while it prevented Mitrione from competing in his scheduled heavyweight bout with Ronny Markes, the fighter did not question the action his promoter took. “It was unfortunate that happened; it was unfortunate it got canceled,” Mitrione told MMA Junkie
