Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller Signs Multi-Fight Contract With the UFC

(Visual proof that Jason Miller once fought Georges St. Pierre in the UFC, and did terribly.)

Former Strikeforce middleweight contender, MTV host, and man-about-town Jason Miller has signed a new multi-fight agreement with the UFC. MMAFighting first confirmed the news this afternoon with Miller’s manager, Ryan Parsons, and Mayhem himself later discussed the development via Twitter: “I now fight for the @UFC. I’d like to thank all the staff there as well as @DanaWhite for this new partnership. I really want to thank all of you for showing your support. Can’t wait to show my skills in the UFC’s octagon.”

Miller has actually competed for the UFC once before, in a welterweight bout against Georges St. Pierre at UFC 52 in April 2005; Mayhem got his ass whupped, lost a unanimous decision, and never competed at 170 pounds again.

Though Miller was recently under contract with Strikeforce, his contract had reportedly expired, which allowed the new UFC signing to take place. Like several other fighters under the Strikeforce banner, he had publicly complained about not getting enough fights in the organization. His last fight for Strikeforce was a first-round TKO over Tim Stout (followed by a no-contest against the entire Skrap Pack) at Strikeforce: Nashville. Last September he choked out Kazushi Sakuraba at DREAM.16, but has been inactive since then.

No return date or first opponent has been announced for Miller’s Octagon return, though his presence creates a lot of interesting possibilities in a UFC middleweight division that already features the likes of Chael Sonnen, Michael Bisping, Wanderlei Silva, Vitor Belfort, Demian Maia, Chris Leben, Yushin Okami, and many other contenders.

I'm sick of these fighters like Miller, Bisping, Hardy and Sonnen. The way they have these personalities, sense of humour and try to sell fights with a bit of drama. Don't they know this is MMA where you should be a division 1 wrestler, force out decision wins, and give one word answers in interviews. Step back in line.

He will be coaching the next TUF or the one after that! 100% SURE!

God Karma go sit by a window and look introspective already.
BaghdadBob- April 23, 2011 at 7:30 pm
Karma, in spite of your stream-of-consciousness commenting style, you've won me over with your second post on this thread. It's absolutely dishonorable for a trained fighter to push around some random civilian. It's also pretty gay. Fuck Miller.
rampage01- April 23, 2011 at 9:16 am
the fight against gsp was so funny, mayhem was getting his ass kicked and was smiling for the whole fight,lmao

@Skeletor
Your right I put myself out there like that. Have at it. I new what I was getting into. I'm just not sure why people who can't even debate the sport try? Make it a personal attack against me if that some how helps your arguement. Power to you. I've grown to expect it on every post I contribute or comment on. I ran out of tissues could I borrow some of yours?
skeletor- April 23, 2011 at 8:14 am
@Karma
Butthurt does best describe how you are acting. The best thing about the internet is you can only imagine what someones face looks like when they start crying about what some random person said about them. But since you have interjected your entire life on this site we can all imagine exactly what your skinny whining crying face looks like.

Listen, only a little bitch goes straight for the eyes in a drunken brawl. Or tries to kick his opponent in the balls while sparring. Yet that's what you are doing SquidInk and feeldariddum. Just like little bitches.
macreadysshack- April 23, 2011 at 8:11 am
+10 to the 'go fuck yourself' for bringing up Karma's try at TUF.

Seriously, that dude's out there doing something. What are you doing? (Please don't answer that - I don't give a fuck)
macreadysshack- April 23, 2011 at 8:08 am
Karma may have blown a blood vessel but it was very entertaining to watch.

More entertaining then your stupid gramatticall critique, Poker.

I like Mayhem in the UFC. He's not enough of a team player to stick around long - he likes surprising people and the UFC HATES surprises.
KarmaAteMyCat- April 23, 2011 at 8:04 am
I always love how everyone here can give their opinion but the second I give mine I get the "Is that why you got turned away from tuf". Real original I'm proud of you for thinking that one up all on your own someone get this man a cookie. As I said "I hope he proves me wrong" do I think he will? No. Lets get butthurt and make this personal because thats what debating MMA on an MMA website is all about. Like I said we'll file that one under butthurt. You ask why the hate for miller? Miller's pretty open about what an enormous douchebag he is how did this some how evade that many MMA radars? Did you forget when he laid his hands on Lazy an amazing video designer and random nerd who was doing nothing. Did we all forget that? Oh he's a friend of Nick Diaz's who cares right? fuck that guy right? Why should I cheer for a guy who's trying to make his money off the back of a guy who fights 3x's the amount he does. Sorry nation I can't do it. I hope he gets in their and leaves it all in cage. As far as almost choking someone out lets ask Chael Sonnen what almosts are like? Wait he's Chael Sonnen though most people don't give a fuck about that dude and toss his beating Anderson Silva up for five rounds to a blessing from the gods. Like I said I always wish the best for anyone getting in the cage and I respect the dude as a fighter(sorta) but as a human being he falls short a bit. I know some of you will tell me that you think the same things about Nick Diaz,Chael Sonnen or perhaps we'll make it personal and you'll try and throw this back in my face. Either way be real or be real with it don't fucking play off that Millers sports ambassador material because he's not.
DARKHORSE06- April 23, 2011 at 12:13 am
I support this move. I would like to see Mayhem have a rematch with that "Get out the Poision" guy from Bully Beatdown.
rogerw- April 22, 2011 at 11:17 pm
Awesome. Mayhem is an enormous douche as a person, but I like him as a fighter.
skeletor- April 22, 2011 at 9:08 pm
I wouldn't mind seeing Mayhem v Grove just to start out. There are some good matchups for him at 185. Miller or Marquart assuming he's not at 170 yet would both be a awesome fights for him as well.

@Squidink
I can do fortune cookie quotes too; man with hand in pocket, feel cocky all day.
SquidInk- April 22, 2011 at 7:12 pm
@karma

Sounds like sour grapes.

Those who can, do. Those who can't, sit back and talk shit.
Coneblazer- April 22, 2011 at 4:46 pm
He'll just be a punching bag for up and coming fighters and new UFC contracts. And his loud mouth and punchable face will offer lots of fodder for UFC fans and journalists.
He'll NEVER be a contender. He'll eventually get his ass handed to him again (like GSP did) and that WILL be worth watching..
fACE7biter- April 22, 2011 at 4:29 pm
For those of you already calling for Sonnen Vs. Mayhem, just know that Chael destroyed Miller in only his second pro MMA fight. Not that I would mind seeing it again. My money is on him being next for Bisbing.

+1 kudo to Naked Rear Poke for grammar, -1 to Naked Rear Poke for name.
LET IT RAIN- April 22, 2011 at 4:02 pm
OH DAMN, ZUFFA IS AT IT AGAIN. THEY JUST BOUGHT BULLY BEATDOWN.
Naked Rear Poke- April 22, 2011 at 3:43 pm
@Karma - No disrespect, but the word is 'than', not 'then'. I've noticed you do this approximately a thousand times. I know it's a common mistake, but I expect more from such a prominent member of the nation.
Dinksmack- April 22, 2011 at 3:26 pm
@KarmaAteMyCat- Whats with the Miller hate? Just curious
FeelDaRiddum- April 22, 2011 at 3:11 pm
@KarmaAteMyCat oh is that what you got sent to tuf for? but then they didnt need you cuz your not even a contender. and what do you mean cant handle shelds? he was going to choke his ass out, shelds did nothing but lay on top of him with no threat what so ever.
KarmaAteMyCat- April 22, 2011 at 2:56 pm
Haha. He couldn't handle Jake Shields at Middleweight. What do you think Shields plans on doing if he loses to GSP? Do you really think he'll ever beat Shields? or any other real Contenders? Do you think the UFC will tolerate his shit like strikeforce did. Here let me remind you

They just wanna feed his monkey ass to their people so he better up the performance because as of right now he's a fighter sure. He isn't a top tier competitor sorry as of right now. I hope he proves me wrong I REALLY DO. However when you have to physically lay your hands on the News Media and get less bullshit for it then when DIAZ says he would?!?!? Yeah that makes fucking sense. I really hope Miller proves me wrong. Do I think he will? No. My hair also looks better then his.
