Jason Miller Bully Beatdown MTV MMA

A year ago, Jason Miller was just another fighter with colorful hair and ridiculous ring entrances. Now, he’s the host of a hit MTV series, a video game character, a budding actor, and a frequent target of loose women. We chatted with Mayhem yesterday about his vida loca, as well as his (possibly) upcoming fight with Jake Shields in Strikeforce. As usual, Mayhem did not disappoint…


CAGEPOTATO.COM: Hey Jason, thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me. What have you been up to this week?
MILLER: Come on man, check my Twitter, what’s wrong with you! I’ve been at EA Sports in Orlando getting bitmapped into their machine so that I appear as myself in their video game, doing the moves that I do and making the sounds that I make when I get hit, which was really funny.

Why do you love Twitter so much? You seem to be obsessed with it.
Yeah, Twitter kicks ass because it gives me an outlet for all the crazy thoughts that constantly pop into my head, and if I can share those and get the rest of America on my wavelength, then I guess I’m doing my part.

Bully Beatdown is now in its second season. I love the show, but do you ever want to say to these bullied people, “Hey, grow a pair, and learn to defend yourself instead of going to a reality show to solve your problems”?
You want me to bully the victims into getting tougher? Some of these people just aren’t tough. It’s just the way of the world, and they have a right to not be bullied and picked on constantly. I’m happy to entertain the masses with the fact that there’s always somebody out there who’s tougher than you, and can kick your ass.

So, you’re a bonafide TV star now…
I don’t know about “bonafide,” but I’m definitely a TV star. I can’t get people to stop coming up to me while I’m trying to eat my damn chicken and rice.

Have you noticed an increase in the amount of groupie sex that’s thrown at you?
Yeah, but you know what, I’m not really into slinging my banana into every Sally that walks up into it because, man…there’s like SuperAIDS now.

Your next fight will be against Jake Shields in Strikeforce. Have they told you exactly when and where that will be?
No man, I don’t know if it’s gonna happen, where it’s gonna happen, or when it’s gonna happen. Honestly, I know nothing. They keep me in the dark. I may be a bonafide TV star, but that doesn’t really have any pull in the knowing-when-you’re-gonna-fight business. The only thing they told me is that it would be for an interim belt.

Jake’s a really talented dude. By my calculations, he’s one of the ten best fighters in the world right now. How do you plan on dealing with him?
Dude, I will beat the piss out of Jake Shields, and he knows it. If everyone thinks I’m gonna lose, that’s fine. I’ll prove them wrong when we get in the cage against each other. I do everything better than him, and I’m bigger than him and stronger than him! I don’t understand, people think that because he stomped out some 170-pounders and caught Robbie Lawler in a damn guillotine, that all of a sudden he’s the second coming of Christ. Well guess what, dude? I’m gonna smash him. When I fight him, I’ll smash him.

A few months ago, you described Ronaldo Souza as a “vagina-head brazilian.” Do you still stand by that description?
When did I say that? That’s hilarious!

It was back in May, on Twitter.
Twitter, damn it! I gotta stop drunk twittering! Yeah, I don’t know. I hate that guy. My moderate annoyance with Jacare turned to severe dislike and, uh — somebody just walked by and said “hey, you’re on that reality show.” Yeah, I am, thanks, I’m doing an interview. But Jacare, the guy doesn’t respect me, and that kind of gets under my skin. It pisses me off, and I would like to beat him up. He’s gonna learn to respect me.

Do you know when you’ll fight him again?
Hell, no. Like I said, I just sit in the dark with my hands up and my chin down.

When you’re not training or filming, what else do you like to do for a good time?
I play a ton of video games. When I was at EA Sports they told me I could have any games I wanted, so I just stole everything. I was literally a kid in a candy store. Before I went to EA I was playing Call of Duty: World at War a bunch. But I just can’t wait for the EA MMA game to come out.

Do you have any plans to parlay your reality TV show career into acting roles?
Yeah, it’s already happening. I can’t talk about it yet, but it’ll be pretty awesome.

We heard those rumors that your buddy Rampage was going to be in The A-Team. You’d probably make a good Murdock.
Everybody said that! I thought so too, but I think the casting lady is my ex-girlfriend’s best friend, so that’s probably not gonna happen.

Last question: Why are you so crazy all the time?

What are you talking about? Look up Darwin’s theory of evolution, man, it’s genetic. And honestly, I don’t even think I’m crazy. I just think all the rest of you guys are too damn boring. Everyone else is boring out there, and all of a sudden I look crazy by default, because I like to have a good time and be exciting.


Watch Mayhem continue to have a good time and be exciting on Bully Beatdown, Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

I must have been kidnapped and banned to the planet nebular. Jake shields is about the shittiest bjj guy I have ever seen in my entire life. He looks like a duck out of water.

We could watch an entire season of bully beatdown by the time Shields sets up an armbar attempt.

Dude looks retarded when he goes for subs.

What type of rock are you idiots smoking...better yet, stop smoking it period.

Hope Miller wins so we can see Diaz vs Miller. If Diaz can get his issues in order that is.

I like how CP exposed the fact that Bully Beatdown is fake, and still had the nerve to ask him about the "bullied people".
for the love of mma- September 2, 2009 at 12:23 pm

"And honestly, I don’t even think I’m crazy. I just think all the rest of you guys are too damn boring." Mayhem is the man!!! LOL

Mayhem can fight Jacare 10x... Jacare would beat him 9x and in the last one Mayhem would open a vagina gash in Jacare's forehead again.

I hope Miller destorys Shields then turns around and destroys those stupid Diaz brothers.

Damn, is there a draft in here?

Watching Miller's entrances always crack me up. He is definitely the next MMA superstar. As for fighting Shields, well if you saw his first match with Jacare, Miller kept stuffing each submission attempt that Souza could throw at him, then he gives a thumbs up to the ref while he was in a kneebar. Sure he lost that fight by decision but you can't submit this guy. I would like to see him as Strikeforce Middleweight champion if Cung Le never comes back. I think he'd bring a lot of attention to the company as well.

Is he available for parties?

I'd throw money on Shields if Diaz doesn't shank him in the locker room first.

"I'm still blown away at how many idiots read Mayhem's sarcastic retort as an admission of guilt."

The only idiots are the ones that think bully beatdown is real. Nothing on mtv is real it's all a bunch of staged bs. It's pretty easy to tell when every line on those shows sounds like really bad acting.

Besides, I think he was admitting that it was fake. I think the only sarcasm was that he actually gives a shit what anyone thinks of him doing a fake show.

Miller would fuck up Shields, end of story.

Mayhem is the man, I hope he doesn't get too comfortable on the ground while he's smashing Jake's face in and get caught with a sub. Those Gracie boys are s-lick slick and they seem to really be able to take a beating and keep on competing.

Maybe if he wins we'll get to see Mayhem vs. Nick Diaz, now that's a fight that'd be 110% guaranteed to entertain.
ArmFarmer- September 2, 2009 at 8:33 am
Why do you ask him questions as if bully beatdown actually involves bullys or people that were bullied? I guess it's kind of like interviewing a wwe wrestler.. can't break character.
jimbonics- September 2, 2009 at 8:20 am
WAR Mayhem. I dont watch Bully Beatdown, or anything on MTV for that matter, but watching him smile the whole time GSP beat him up, has endeared him forever in my heart.

WarpedAcorn- September 2, 2009 at 7:56 am
Honestly, if it wasn't for Miller, I wouldn't watch Bully Beatdown...some of his one-liners crack me up.
Frank Mur- September 2, 2009 at 7:46 am
WAR MAYHEM!!! he would definately expose Shields
