Matt Mitrione offers a genuine apology for the way that his latest fight under the Bellator MMA banner went down.

The former UFC heavyweight star went to a no contest against Sergei Kharitonov in the headliner of Bellator 215. This event went down on Friday, February 15, 2019 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on the Paramount Network. The fight lasted just 15 seconds due to an accidental low kick from Mitrione.

Following the fight, Mitrione made it known that he’s terribly sorry for the way that the fight ended and how it was such a lackluster way to end an event.

“It just sucks, man,” Mitrione told MMAjunkie. “Mr. Coker and I were already talking about some stuff. I have to get in Mr. (Bellator matchmaker Rich) Chou’s ear and see what I can get on. If it’s all booked out, maybe they can bump somebody. I know there’s a card in Chicago (in May), and I live in the Midwest. I’ll bring a gang of people there and we’ll act straight foolish in there if we can get a fight in Chicago.”

“I cannot begin to explain how sorry I am for everybody that paid to come to the fight to watch that fight between Sergei and I. It would’ve been really dope – it would’ve been a great fight. Obviously, it was not intentional – the worst possible situation. Sergei: I’m genuinely sorry. I’m apologetic as I could possibly be.”

Matt Mitrione and Sergei Kharitonov Bellator 215 main event only lasted 15 seconds and ends in a no contest.

It is a good thing that Bellator is right back at it tomorrow at the very same venue with a stacked card, because fans may want a refund after the way tonight’s co-main and main event ended.

The main event lasted all of 15 seconds and featured one confirmed blow – the illegal groin strike that ended the fight. (watch below via Twitter):

This is an unfortunate end to a relatively weak, but at times exciting, card. If Kharitonov’s family jewels feel better, may I suggest having these two run it back sometime soon.
