It appears that Matt Mitrione isn't happy with Andrei Arlovski. Mitrione (9-3, 9-3 UFC) is currently ranked at number 12 in the UFC heavyweight division and is looking for a fight. Arlovski (23-10, 1 NC, 12-4 UFC) has been asking fans for fight suggestions on Twitter. So naturally, a fight between the two might make some sense. Well, according to Mitrione, Arlovski turned down a fight with him. So he took to Twitter to put him on blast:

Arlovski is coming off a win over the aforementioned Antonio Silva, which sent him rocketing up the rankings. Mitrione has finished three opponents in a row in the first round, with the last being Gabriel Gonzaga in December. Could this matchup come together? We'll have to see if Mitrione's baiting works out for him or not.
