Fighters get their rugby on: Mitrione, Fitch and Bonnar with the Sydney Roosters

With the UFC invading Sydney for UFC 127, the media was on hand as fighters Matt Mitrione, Jon Fitch, Stephan Bonnar, James Te Huna and Kyle Noke met with Sydney's rugby team, the Roosters.

For a former football defensive tackle, Mitrione showed some pretty good hands with the larger rugby ball (Fanhouse video). Although the narrator in this Roosters' video said, the fighters "weren't really impressing with the ball."

Mitrione and fellow Purdue Boilermaker Stephan Bonnar reminisce about the drunken days at Purdue's Ross-Ade Stadium. Mitrione was playing for Joe Tiller, so he wasn't the drunken viewer. He also loved the grass at the Sydney Roosters' stadium. 

If you're wondering what Steggles sells, fittingly, it's a poultry company.

Check out all of Tracy Lee's photos from the event.
