UFC Bans Fighter Jason Miller for Questionable Behavior
UFC bans fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller after president Dana White claimed that the professional brawler’s outrageous pre-fight antics didn’t fit with the company’s professional sensibilities. Although it’s unclear which incident caused White to throw in the proverbial towel, it’s quite clear that he’s had enough of the guy’s behavior.
The news arrived hot on the heels of Miller’s loss to C.B. Dollaway, a fight which featured “Mayhem” holding a pink boombox while wearing a pink boa. “When you get embarrassed the way he did against Michael Bisping, then you show up in that pink whatever that thing was, I’m not into that stuff. It’s not my thing. I guess I don’t really care if guys do it because you see it at weigh-ins all the time. Just take this thing serious. If you want to be a clown do that stuff on your reality show,” White explained.
Regarding which specific incident of unchecked silliness caused him to boot Miller from the UFC, White said that it was “just some bulls–t that I don’t want to talk about. We’re on a crazy string here of dumb bulls–t.” Fair enough.
Jason “Mayhem” Miller began his career in the mixed martial arts circuit in 1999. Known for his wild behavior, Miller quickly developed a reputation within the UFC for being a bit of a wild child. And while his career as a professional scrapper may have ended with the UFC, Miller can still be found hosting MTV’s “Bully Beatdown” and announcing for “King of the Cage” with Michael Schiavello. His record currently stands at 33-23, with 5 knock-outs and 14 submissions.
