Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller

Jason Nicholas Miller, better known as Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, is an American mixed martial arts middleweight fighter. He is known for his over-the-top entrances, sometimes overly confident attitude and unique fighting style. He has fought for organizations like UFC, Strikeforce, WFA, WEC, and DREAM. He also is the host of the MTV reality show Bully Beatdown, where he pairs people who bully others with real MMA fighters with the reward of cash if lasting through certain time limits. It’s a nifty show!

Despite his raising popularity, it would seem Miller’s UFC career has come to a close.  Just recently, the president of the UFC, Dana White, confirmed that Mayhem is done with the organization. It would seem the fighter has had a little bit of an ego cut lately.

After a disappointing defeat against Michael Bisping, White told media at a press conference that:

“Some of the punches that were thrown by Mayhem Miller in this fight, you could go to a girls’ Tae Bo class and see better form, better stand-up. It was embarrassing.”

These words seemed to have taken Miller by heart. The fighter flew over the Atlantic to Holland to train at his kickboxing skills in order to learn from his errors. He worked with some of the best kickboxers to gain as much skill and knowledge as possible.

In an interview before his next fight with C.B. Dollaway, Mayhem made it clear that he wasn’t intimidated by Dollaway at the least, and didn’t see him as a wrestler at all. He seemed to see Dollaway as a very small threat, if at all.

The fight rolled around and Miller slammed Dollaway with a powerful right hit, sending him staggering in the second round. However, after making no progress and shuffling around the octagon, Miller allowed Dollaway to recover. Dollaway wrestled Miller down and pulled off a unanimous decision victory at the final round, proving Mayhem’s theory wrong.

White did seem surprised with Miller’s loss. However according to the UFC President, “When you have all these other organizations and people starting saying this guy is the best and starts getting ranked and he hasn’t fought the best guys in the world yet…” He then followed that statement up with a statement on how he disregards the rankings of other organizations.
