For his own self worth...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Matt Mitrione (7-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) said that his knockout of Shawn Jordan (15-6 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale was important for his self-worth.
On how important the win was: "To be honest, I don't even think about my job security. But for my own self worth, it was really important."
On his strategy before the fight: "We had a game plan and we addressed things I was too hesitant on (in past fights). We tried to make sure it's an afterthought now instead of being a primary (concern). If I ever lose again, I won't lose because of being tentative."
On his personal problems: "I'm an idiot and I do a lot of dumb things a lot of times. I started to get out of my own way a little more and go down the right path instead of running through the forest."
