Mayhem Miller Pleads Not Guilty to Resisting and Obstructing Officer Charges


(This face says a lot, but lawbreaker? Nahhh son.)

For today’s installment of the CagePotato Tri-County Blotter, we once again return to former UFC middleweight Jason “Mayhem” Miller, who you *might* recall was detained by SWAT units last week following a standoff with police, that he live-tweeted. While Orange County police were originally paying Miller a visit to bring him in on stalking, domestic violence, and criminal contempt charges, his three-hour standoff forced them to slap an obstructing an officer and resisting arrest charges as well.

According to ABC7 in Los Angeles, it appears that Miller will be fighting those last two aforementioned charges, and thank God for that.

“MMA fighter Jason @mayhemmiller pleads not guilty to resisting and obstructing officer charge,” tweeted ABC7′s Julie Sone yesterday.

Additionally, MMAFighting has obtained police records which claim that Miller was able to post the $200,000 bond after spending 7 days in jail. NOTE TO CITIZENS OF MISSION VIEJO: Lock up your daughters, lock up your wives, lock up your back doors and run for your lives.

As luck would have it, Miller has already taken to Twitter to vent his frustrations with the manner in which he was arrested…

And Now He’s Fired: TUF 14 Alum Steven Siler Given the Boot Following Three-Fight Skid


(via Fox Sports) 

Like Chris Camozzi before him, Steven Siler was perhaps one of the more unexpected success stories to come out of The Ultimate Fighter. After being paired against the heavily-favored WEC vet Micah Miller in his TUF 14 elimination bout and emerging victorious via third round submission, Siler was viciously knocked out of the tournament by eventual season winner Diego Brandao. Like countless veterans of the reality show before him, most expected to see Siler put on a couple decent performances in the UFC before being released for simply not being up to par.

But as losses so often do, Siler’s quick defeat to Brandao actually fueled his 5-1 start in the promotion. While “Super” was always considered a grappling specialist with limited standup skills once was, his unanimous decision victory over fellow TUF standout Cole Miller at UFC on FX 2 painted him as a different fighter entirely. His combinations were quick and precise, his footwork on point. Siler lit up Miller for three rounds and sent a message to the featherweight division that he was a force to be reckoned with. A dominant victory over Joey Gambino would follow, along with wins over Kurt Holobaugh and former WEC champ Mike Brown.

The past year and a half, however, has been an incredibly frustrating period for Siler…

Chris Weidman Saves 92-Year Old Neighbor’s Life, Seems Pretty Chill About It [UPDATED]

Move over Good Guy Dos Santos, there’s a newer, gooder samaritan in town and his name’s Chris Weidman. As in current middleweight champ, Jewelry Gallery of Oyster Bay spokesperson, and slayer of the GOAT (2x) Chris Weidman.

You see, Weidman was just hanging out in his Long Island home this morning, likely discussing deli meats and the traffic assjam on the 111 with Matt Serra, when his 92-year old neighbor stumbled out of her home, covered in blood and in desperate need of help. While most New Yorkers would have told the old bird to fack off before diving back into their pastrami on rye with dijon mustard (I missed lunch today), Weidman actually decided to do something about it. His wife detailed the incident on Instagram:

Shout out to this man @chrisweidmanufc who just saved our 92 year old neighbors life. She fell onto a glass table and had pieces stuck in her head. She was in her driveway bleeding out in the rain trying to call her daughter on the phone. Chris ran over and brought her inside, cleaned her up and called 911. #myhero

Wow, what a guy. I fully expect Weidman to be repaid for his act of heroism in the form of another life-destroying hurricane, because bad things only happen to good people. There is no God, is what I’m trying to say.

(I really need to eat something.)

[UPDATE]

After the jump: Weidman recounts the crazy story to MMAFighting.

Christy Mack Posts Surgery Update Photos, Is Predictably Slut-Shamed By the UG

It has been just two months since Christy Mack was heinously assaulted by former boyfriend Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver, and the adult film star is still facing a long road to recovery. While her ex-boyfriend has been claiming that she “got what she deserved” while awaiting trial ever since, the adult film community has rallied to support Mack, raising nearly $100,000 to pay for the long list of medical expenses that she has ahead of her.

In the time since her assault, Mack has remained all but silent on social media, only occasionally emerging to thank her fans for their ongoing support. Recently however, Mack posted a photo update to to her Instagram page and let us know how her recovery is going, along with the following description:

Sometimes half of your temp teeth decide to fall out to match the rest of your face. Thanks to Dr. Motykie for fixing the damage to my nose, and Dr. Adam Lousignont of Las Vegas for the temp tooth fix… again. Left was Monday right is today. What a difference a few days makes! I’m starting to breathe out of my nose again and today I’m going to get my glasses. One day soon I’ll be going to New York to see Dr. Toscano and get my permanent teeth.

Just an awful, awful situation that Mack has been subjected to, and one made even worse thanks to the heartless reaction she has received from the always reliable Internet.

You see, because Ms. Mack happens (or happened) to work in porn, she is therefore a target of perpetual cynicism, sexism, and misogyny — a truly vile and heartless creature who deserves no sympathy other than that found in the form of a rehashed punchline. And while we all know that the UG forums have devolved from a once respectable place of humorous information-sharing to a TMZ-esque cesspool of hate and gossip (not unlike some place you know, amiright?), their treatment of Mack’s recovery has lowered the bar to a level that not even James Cameron could attempt to rescue.

So without further adieu, I give you the most horrific jokes made about Christy Mack on the “Pre and Post Surgery” UG thread

Chan Sung Jung Enters Mandatory Military Service, Will Not Return to Action for Two Years


(So this is what boot camp is like in South Korea, eh? *immediately purchases plane ticket*)

It has been well over a year since the MMA world has laid an eye on Chan Sung Jung. If you recall, “The Korean Zombie” broke approximately half the bones in his body against Jose Aldo at UFC 163 before dislocating his shoulder in the fourth round, and only recently popped up in July to angle for a fight with Nik Lentz on Twitter. A perennial fan favorite with 2 Fight of the Year awards to his credit, Jung was scheduled to face Akira Corassani at Fight Night 53 before reinjuring his shoulder and further delaying his return.

And unfortunately, it looks like we won’t be seeing the Zombie for a lot longer. Like Dominick Cruz long. In an interview with MMAFighting earlier today, Jung’s manager, Brian Rhee, revealed that his client would be stepping away from the sport for two years (!!!) to fulfill the mandatory military service required by all South Korean male citizens.

He feels bad for his fans and thankful to the UFC, Dana and the Ferttitas for letting him be a professional fighter,” Rhee said. “He’s going to rehab, train and comeback stronger than ever after the end of the 2 years!”

Jung, 27, is scheduled to report to basic training on October 20.

Blatant Troll Job of the Day: Floyd Mayweather “Looks Forward” to Putting on His First MMA Show


(Photo via ThingsMMAFightersWillNeverSee.com)

Floyd Mayweather and MMA: a duo as complementary and universally beloved as peanut butter and motor oil. It seems as if “Money” has been teasing a crossover to mixed martial arts (in one capacity or another) for close to a decade now, with MMA fans and media members lapping up his every word like it was a dog dish full of Beyonce’s booty sweat. Because surely, a man who earns a greater payday in one boxing match than the UFC’s entire roster does in a year (exaggeration?) needs “the world’s fastest growing sport” to get dat premo Fight Pass dough.

But like I said, us MMA bloggers love to talk about old Floyd, no matter how obvious, apparent, or a third synonym it is that he’s trolling us. Take his recent interview with Fight Hype magazine, for instance, in which Mayweather discusses how he is, like, totally going to host an MMA event soon. For realz. Third person narrative abounds:

We believe in treating our boxers and our MMA fighters fair. I want a lot of MMA fighters to get in touch with you because Mayweather Promotions, I look forward to putting on my first MMA show also and having me some MMA champions. Like I said before, Floyd Mayweather loves to think outside the box. We’re not just one-dimensional. We’re very versatile, and we have an open mind. When I get into the MMA game, I want them to make more money than they’re making because from what I hear, they’re not being treated fair. 

You hear that, broke fighters and MMA agents? Floyd Mayweather will treat you fairly, because Floyd Mayweather is a kind, compassionate human being (exceptions: former employees, security guards, the mother of his children).

So It Turns Out Rick Story Derailed the Gunnar Nelson Hype Train With a Broken Ankle


(Well, that’s a little different than how I would’ve played it.)

The only thing more surprising than Rick Story’s five round routing of Icelandic prospect Gunnar Nelson at Fight Night 53 last weekend was probably the fact that one of the judges actually awarded the fight to Nelson — and by “surprising” I of course mean “in line with everything we’ve come to expect about the state of MMA judging.” But today (yesterday), a truly surprising fact of the fight was dropped by Story via Twitter.

As it turns out, not only was Story able to temporary derail the “Gunni” hype train while fighting on foreign soil, but he was able to do so with a broken ankle to boot. Sounds like a real “Horror” story, amiright fellas? (*crickets*)

According to Story, he suffered the brutal injury to his left ankle in the second round of the five round main event, and is unsure of whether or not it would require surgery or what his return timetable would be. Let’s hope his entrance into the top 15 of his division (at #12) will provide him some comfort in these trying times.
