15 Moments of Instant Regret [GIFs]

UPDATED: Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller Retires — Temporarily, At Least

From FightHype via MMA Mania:

“I got plenty of money. I don’t even care…I love fighting, but I’m just doing it for fun. I don’t feel like doing it right now, so I’m not going to do it….I might come out of retirement in a little while, but right now, I’m retired…There is no need for me to fight, so I’m just happy to have lived such a fun career inside of MMA, so if it ends now, it was fun…

Oh, I will be in the MMA world. I can’t really escape this land of tacky skull T-shirts and spics chicks with bad tattoos. (Ed. note: FightHype now says that “chicks” was originally misunderstood to be “spics” due to background noise.) I can’t get out of here that easily, but with that being said, I don’t need to fight…

I’d like to be remembered as a man who fought primarily for the fans. Regardless of the outcome of the fight, I always fought to put on a show.”

First off, I just want to give a thumbs down to FightHype and MMA Mania for presenting this story with no judgment whatsoever on Miller’s use of the word “spics.” Mayhem’s generally wacky persona shouldn’t give him a free pass to drop racial slurs at will. Is that too much to ask? I’d love to hear Miguel Torres and Roger Huerta‘s take on the matter.

All that aside, it seems like a slightly premature retirement, in the vein of Melvin Manhoef‘s. Miller lost his last bout — a decision against Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza at DREAM.4 in June — which snapped a four-fight win streak. His career was highlighted by wins against Denis Kang, Robbie Lawler, and Tim Kennedy, and he lost his sole UFC appearance to Georges St. Pierre at UFC 52 in April 2005. So, whatever. Shilling for Triumph United will have to pay the bills for now…

I could see how background noise could contribute to the misinterpretation... Mayhem does have a bit of a lisp too.

"I can honestly say that I knew this before everyone! He posted an emo myspace status 2 months ago saying how he was done with fighting and all of it’s politics."

No you didn't...We all got the same "status" message

"I personally blame the DREAM organization "

Why? He doesn't...You dip.

BTW...

It's all a joke! The kid just had knee surgery and will be back when he has recovered .

This blog was just copy and pasted from another blog without checking out the facts.

My only beef with fighters with any Mexican lineage is how they represent Mexico and the flag so hard. If it's such a great fucking country that you're so proud of, go the fuck back. At least give the U.S. some props like Tito since you know you grew up here. Roger Huerta in particular. Has that guy even been outside of the country voluntarily? I know his mom kidnapped him once, but isn't that a negative relation? He is about as Mexican as nunchucks. He looks and sounds whiter than me.

mybjjsucks,

u forget 99% of the ppl who post on here are probably too lazy to do that.

Attention Dana White, please get Mayhem back in the UFC.
geoff- October 20, 2008 at 12:52 am
im sry, but if ur gonna be a professional athlete..u dont use racist slang..it just makes u look retarded. god i hope hes retired for good.

Racism is kinda hilarious. When i came to North America from India, people used to call me paki like all the time! I used to get mad because i thought that paki was short for pakistani! I won't stand for that shit. But when i figured out it was just a very uncreative racist term towards Indians and Pakistanis i was no longer offended. Cuz im no pakistani, got that? No im fucken serious.

I can honestly say that I knew this before everyone! He posted an emo myspace status 2 months ago saying how he was done with fighting and all of it's politics. Based on that I personally blame the DREAM organization for this. They screw their fighters and fighters can only be f***ed over so many times. We'll see him again. He loves to fight way too much to let the next 80 years of his life go untested. We will see Mayhem Miller again.

All you motherfuckers in the middle of the country, where it’s ok to say words like “ni__er” and “sp_c”, should only assaociate with one another. You’re a piece of shit if you are rushing to Mayhem Miller’s defence for talking like this. Its too bad that the internet has provided another means for youguys to spread your hate. Keep your damn hillbilly talk in the trailer where it belongs."


Says someone that refers to himself as "Lickmyfart".

BTW

Most racist live on Staten Island, NY or in LA, so f*ck you with your " middle of the country" bullsh!t. You white, guilt filled cuckold.

when jayson miller said the word "spic", i think way too many of you flew off the handle a little too quickly. also, i feel that a little detail may have been overlooked. that detail being that maybe mayhem himself is indeed a spic. this is a counclusion i draw from a triumph united ad in wich he is rockin full camo gear with both the american and puerto rican flag. that being the case, it would take away some of the ammo that you guys are creating. here is a brilliant idea, instead of crucifying a man on a blog that he will never read or bashing an editor for his opinion (after all it's only his first ammendment right), why not ask jayson mayhem miller what he meant by it. who knows, maybe i'm the one with the fucked up view, but i was laways taught that as a man you take your gripes up directly with the person who insulted you, not run and post a blog to fight with other cowardly people. after all i believe the saying goes: "fighting with a keybord is like competeing in the special olympics; you might win, but you're still retarded."

You won't do sh!t b!tch.


@Ben

F*ck off! Let me guess...Your chick is a Latino isn't she?

I once loved this site, but it has sucked for at least the last 5 months.
Farthammer- October 19, 2008 at 9:08 pm
Didn't he have a blog entry regarding getting his hair cut that was littered with racist thoughts? What an asshole.
MMAEruption.com- October 19, 2008 at 9:06 pm
Damn, they should make Mayhem the coach opposing Bisping on the next season of TUF.
kimbo stole my shoes- October 19, 2008 at 8:38 pm
so it would appear that my hopes of miller coming back to the ufc, as sparked by dana's vlog, have been dashed..... that annoys me.

perhaps michael bisping will get hit by a double decker bus. no seriuos damage, maybe just enough to slow down his back-pedal; that would cheer me up.
