UFC veteran Bryce Mitchell recently revealed that he has previously tested out his fantastic grappling skills against a deer as well as other people. Mitchell has been able to show off a huge amount of talent on the ground multiple times during his UFC career, and he currently holds a 16-1 professional record. He’s been slowly climbing the rankings since he joined the promotion in 2018 after going 1-1 on The Ultimate Fighter. Mitchell now finds himself in the top 10 of the featherweight division and he’s definitely capable of reaching the top of the mountain if things continue going his way.
Bryce Mitchell sat down for an episode of the Overdogs Podcast and was asked about a story that the host had heard, of him choking out a deer. Mitchell was quick to explain the situation:
“That happened. Not like the biggest doe ever, but definitely not a small one. I was hunting with a crossbow and I had my scope electrical taped on there. I guess when I got out to the woods the tape wiggled loose and I was shooting and missing. I’m not kidding because my scope was taped on.”
“I called the doe in for like two and a half hours. It fell asleep and I took a shot and I missed. I just climbed down the deer stand and I said I’m going to try to get my hands on it. I waited till it went back to sleep and I went real quiet down the deer stand and I was like, ‘F—k it, I’m going to do it.’”
“Before I slid the choke in I texted my coach and I told him to help. Slid my left arm in and I proceeded to choke it to death.”
