Mr. Mitrione’s UFC contract has been suspended and the incident is being investigated.”

Under investigation? Has the first amendment disappeared along with the second?

The first amendment would absolutely apply - if the UFC were the government. Is the UFC the government?

People unclear on the concept thought that boycotting the Dixie Chicks after their remarks was a violation of their 1st Amendment rights.

If you say something your employer doesn't like they can (and will) fire you. The 1st Amendment doesn't apply unless your employer is the government.
