When he isn’t training, teaching bullies lessons on MTV or taunting Nick Diaz via his website, dontbescaredhomie.com, most people don’t realize that Jason Miller is spends a glut of his other time teaching a new crop of aspiring MMA fighters to beat the shit out of people. The surprising thing is that Mayhem – a guy who most people would assume spends all of his free time choreographing his ring entrances — is actually a pretty decent trainer who takes the role very seriously.
The video above gives a brief glimpse at a more serious (and much more hairy) side of Miller that we rarely get to see when the camera’s aren’t rolling.
One thing’s for sure, a drop to 170 to fight Diaz wouldn’t be easy for Mayhem, considering how big he looks next to Fabricio Werdum.

With The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale just a couple weeks away, many of us have been wondering how prepared Jason Miller was for his return to the UFC, especially considering that he hasn’t truly faced legitimate competition since his unanimous decision loss to Jake Shields just over 2 years ago. Aaron Tru of TruMMA was able to catch up with the Team Mayhem coach recently, and aside from playing a good old fashioned game of “Sactap,” was able to achieve a rather serious conversation with Miller, at one point even discussing the WEC and Strikeforce veteran’s seriousness (or lack thereof) when it comes to training. And “Mayhem” was quick to set things straight for those doubters out there:
On his training camp: “[Training] is going fantastic. I’m really surprised. This is the first camp that I’ve got a super serious camp in my entire career, and I’m an old damn man by fighter’s standards. It feels awesome. I’ve never been in such good shape and I’ve never had such a good mental focus going into a fight. It’s really refreshing. I was like, ‘Oh, this is what training camp is supposed to be like.’”
On how serious he takes his training: “The reason I do this sport, the reason I got into this career, was because I enjoy going to a padded room where I can act as crazy as I want and it’s not an institution. I think you can train seriously and still have a lot of fun. Even on The Ultimate Fighter, here at Reign Training Center, even going back to high school wrestling, I was always like the funny guy on the team and I feel like it keeps morale up.”
It’s hard to disagree with Miller, who has shown a true knack for not only coaching but connecting with his team on this season of The Ultimate Fighter, whereas Team Bisping seemingly can’t have a sparring session that doesn’t erupt into a brawl at some point.

(Mayhem discusses his opus with the KTLA morning news jackasses.)
I want to hate Jason "Mayhem" Miller’s “Bully Beatdown.” I really do. Not only is it an incredibly stupid idea that bastardizes and trivializes MMA and bullying (both of which are close to my heart), it also features Mayhem acting the fool for MTV. And yet, after watching episode one (which doesn’t work when I embed it for some reason), I was actually somewhat entertained.
Miller brings in Tony “The Gun” Bonello (who was bullied pretty bad by “Ninja” Rua in his last outing) to rough up a guy who’s been bullying his older brother while also paradoxically sporting a tattoo that reads “Family First.” What follows isn’t even close to MMA (one round of grappling followed by one round of kickboxing is obviously some bullshit), but it is oddly satisfying in the way that seeing a bully get bullied always is. Think of it as "Pros vs. Joes" with more personal acrimony and less time wasted on soccer and swimming and other nonsense.
After the jump, something only kind of related to MMA, but close enough.Read More DIGG THIS

This fucking guy. Jason “Mayhem” Miller has had some problems lately. More accurately, the people he’s allegedly terrorized lately have had some problems. Notably, there are the multiple charges and arrests related to domestic abuse for which Miller is currently out on bond for.
Now, according to Gracie Magazine’s Erik Fontanez, Miller can add racist taunts and casino brawling to his resume. According to the reporter, UFC middleweight Uriah Hall and retired basket-case Miller were both in Commerce, California on Friday night for a BAMMA USA fight card.
After the event, Fontanez tweeted that he saw and heard Miller hurl a racial epithet at Hall. Hall then reportedly went after Miller physically and a fight ensued before being broken up by security of the casino they were in at the time. Below are some of Fontanez’s tweets from late Friday night.Read More DIGG THIS

You guys aren’t going to believe this, but Michael Bisping and Jason Miller didn’t become best friends during the taping of The Ultimate Fighter 14. With the new season kicking off next Wednesday night, Bisping went on The MMA Hour for a little promo work, and spent a good chunk of his appearance talking about how annoying Mayhem was on set. Some notable quotes:
“[There was] a bit of friction between me and Miller, just a little bit, ups and downs. At the start of the season I thought he was an OK guy. By the end of the season I wanted to kill him. Fortunately, December 3, I’ll get that opportunity.”
“Yeah, I mean he tried to [get under my skin], unfortunately Miller’s mouth is bigger than his brain, so he didn’t do a very good job of it. He tried to do it a few times, but they were really quite pitiful…I definitely get the upper hand throughout the entire season. I’m not talking about the fights, I’m just talking about the one-on-one interaction between me and Miller. I feel he crossed the line a few times, there were a few instances that he definitely crossed the line, so come December 3rd, I’m looking forward to making him pay for his words and pay for his disrespect.”Read More DIGG THIS

(Props: TheRyanLoco. Things begins to go south at the 2:06 mark.)
Just as UFC color-man Joe Rogan recently landed in hot water over which words he shouldn’t use in public, Strikeforce/MTV star Jason Miller may be getting a costly lesson in who he may and may not put his hands on. Miller was at Kings MMA on Saturday to receive his jiu-jitsu black belt from Rafael Cordeiro, when he spotted our friend (and noted 209 supporter) Michael "Layzie the Savage" Mardones.
Seemingly without provocation — unless you count previous online trash talk — Miller slapped Layzie’s hat off, then rudely shoved him out the door. Later, Miller cooled down enough to allow Layzie back in the building, where he lectured him about Nick Diaz’s bitchassness. The afternoon proceeded as planned, but things didn’t end there. Apparently, Mardones is considering pressing assault charges against Miller due to their physical altercation. As he explained on the UG:Read More DIGG THIS

Yesterday, we regretfully informed you that Jason “Mayhem” Miller had been arrested for the third time in the past 30 days for violating a “stay away” order related to his ongoing domestic violence charges. When we heard the news, we figured that Miller might have showed up naked to the victim’s house and started flinging his feces at the doorbell. You know, something wacky like that.
But the truth is much less dramatic. In fact, Mayhem’s violation of the protective order was so minor and non-hostile that we kind of feel bad he got arrested for it. SciFighting.com passes along the details:
Jason Miller was arrested at approximately 3:15 PM PST [Monday] at the conclusion of his first hearing in an ongoing domestic violence case in Southern California. He was taken into custody by the Orange County Sherif’s Department after the alleged victim revealed a snapchat video to the court of him saying “I love you.” Since snapchat messages are designed to disappear from the recipient’s phone seconds after viewing them the alleged victim waited until the hearing to open the message in front of the district attorney to bolster the veracity of her claims. Unfortunately for Mr. Miller although the contents of the message were completely benign in nature, under the provisions of the protective order, any communications from Mr. Miller to the alleged victim are strictly prohibited. The judge deemed Mr. Miller in violation of the protective order and as a result the DA asked that the bond amount be raised an additional $15 thousand, however Judge Andre Manssourian, apparently wishing to drive a point home with Mr. Miller, ordered the bail be set at $200 thousand.Read More DIGG THIS
