During Wednesday’s UFC 272 Media Day, undefeated featherweight Bryce Mitchell said “there’s been so much political corruption” in Ukraine and highlighted then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s questionable business dealings.
Asked specifically about his thoughts on the Ukraine situation, Mitchell said, “Here’s my first thought: I’m not going nowhere to fight none of these wars for these politicians.”
“I’m staying at home. And when the war comes to Arkansas, I will dig my boots in the ground, and I will die for everything I love,” Mitchell said, who was was born and raised in Cabot, Arkansas. “And I will not retreat. If this country is invaded and everybody’s saying, ‘Well, we gotta evacuate, we gotta leave’, I will not. I will dig my boots in the Arkansas soil, and I will fight for the people that I love, for the land that I love, and the way of life that I love”.
“But I’m not going overseas to fight. I don’t know what’s going on to be honest, brother. I really don’t. There’s so much stuff, and I don’t think nobody knows what’s going on fully,” he suspected.
“There’s been so much political corruption in that area. You got Biden and his son making a shit ton of money off of — and using our tax dollars to bribe their people. That’s treasonous, in my opinion. So you got Hunter Biden, his son, using our tax dollars. ‘Hey, Ukrainian government, if you don’t do this, we’re taking your tax dollars’. He shouldn’t be giving our tax dollars to that country anyway,” the UFC fighter said.
“We got veterans sleeping on the street, and you’re gonna give our freaking tax dollars to these Ukrainians. … I don’t know what’s going on over there, but I’m not going over there fighting. God bless anybody that’s over there fighting, and I hope that this shit just gets solved,” Mitchell expressed. Video Below
“Man, I don’t like war. You know what I mean? I don’t want people dying and all that stuff. … There’s so much stuff that’s corrupted. We just don’t know what’s truly going on over there. I just pray all those people are safe,” Mitchell added.
