Following Venator FC III Loss, Mayhem Miller Wants to Change “His Whole Life” [VIDEO]


(“So then the officer grabbed me like this and demanded to know which orifice I was hiding the bath salts in and…what were we talking about again?”)

Following a couple high profile, highly-criticized signings and the most epic press release of all time (not that we had anything invested in it), Italian promotion Venator FC held its third event over the weekend. It was a night of surprises, to say the least, with perhaps the most surprising thing being that the event didn’t end up being the absolute shitshow that it seemed primed to be.

In the main event of the evening, UFC veteran and contemptible asshole Rousimar Palhares was obliterated inside of a minute by heavy underdog Emil Meek. In a light heavyweight matchup, TUF 3 alum Matt Hamill faced off with Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou and met a similarly brief/violent end, and even Cody McKenzie managed to secure his first victory in over two years via his signature guillotine.

But atop the shitshow mountain stood Jason “Mayhem” Miller, who was plucked from a 4 year absence (the majority of which he spent in the back seat of a squad car) to face fellow UFC vet Luke Barnatt in a middleweight title fight. Mayhem’s return seemed doomed from the beginning when he showed up to the scales a whopping 24 pounds overweight, but after being pulled from the fight and rebooked at light heavyweight against Mattia Schiavolin, the stage was finally set for what would surely be a disastrous performance.

Shockingly, however, Miller not only looked halfway decent in the cage, but appears as if he might actually be on the path to redemption.

[VIDEO] Jason Miller Shows Up 24 POUNDS Overweight, Pulled From Venator FC Bout With Luke Barnatt


(“209 pounds? Yeah, it must be the shorts.”)

You guys remember how Jason Miller was recently plucked from whatever Mission Viejo drug den he’s been rotting away in and booked for a fight against fellow former UFC middleweight Luke Barnatt, right? Or that even after being booked in said fight, he seemed to be under the impression that he was fighting UFC heavyweight Josh Barnett? How about the fact that he was *then* arrested and held on a million dollars bail, or that the President of the promotion that booked him then used a satirical statement we wrote as his company’s actual press release?

Well, it might shock you to learn that Miller hasn’t exactly used this fight as an opportunity to turn his life around, as some have suggested it would be. At this morning’s weigh-ins, Miller showed up a staggering 24 pounds over the middleweight limit and has subsequently been pulled from his fight.

Jason “Mayhem” Miller Arrested AGAIN, Now Being Held on $1 Million Bail [UPDATED]


(via HBO Sports)

At this point, there are few jokes left to be made at the expense of Jason “Mayhem” Miller, whose downward spiral over the past five years has seen him arrested for several acts of assault and engage in a standoff with Los Angeles SWAT members (a standoff which he live-tweeted) among other crimes and misdemeanors. It’s been nothing short of heartbreaking to witness, and made all the worse by the knowledge that the path on which he is currently traveling seems destined to end in only the darkest of ways.

Yet despite the many, many warning signs Miller has given off in recent years, the former Strikeforce and UFC middleweight was inexplicably booked in a match against fellow UFC alum Luke Barnatt for Italian promotion VenatorFC this coming May – a story that was immediately undercut by Miller’s subsequent arrest for driving under the influence.

As you might expect, we are not about to deliver the news that Miller has made a miraculous recovery and has rededicated himself to the sport that made him such a notorious and likable personality to begin with. No, we’re here to tell you that “Mayhem” has been arrested YET AGAIN, and the best thing we can say is that thankfully no one was hurt.

Jason “Mayhem” Miller Books Fight With Luke Barnatt, Immediately Gets Arrested


(Well, at least Miller’s training for what awaits him in prison.)

If you ever find yourself in a heated discussion about the American justice system, look no further than the case of Jason “Mayhem” Miller as proof that it might be in need of some retooling. The former Strikeforce/UFC fighter has been arrested no less than half a dozen times in the past couple of years for various degrees of assault (some on women, others on police officers) and yet continue to roam free from the only cage he actually belongs in: a jail cell or padded room. It’s a statistical anomaly, really.

But because MMA promoters do not care one bit about the wellbeing of their fighters, it was announced a couple days back that Miller would be returning from his self-imposed retirement/exile/whatever to take on Luke Barnatt at Venator FC III in Milan, Italy on May 21st. It was, in a word, saddening.

Even more saddening, as it turns out, is what Miller did immediately after booking the fight…

The Mayhem Continues: Ian McCall’s Ex-Wife Files Assault Charges Against Jason Miller


(via Shay’s Instagram

When we last checked in with former Strikeforce/UFC fighter turned certifiably crazy person Jason Miller, he had just finished pleading not guilty to resisting and obstructing officer charges following a standoff with California SWAT…that he live tweeted. Classic Mayhem, amiright?

In any case, if you thought that pesky little incident would slow down the man who’s been arrested more times in the past couple years than Katt Williams, then you probably didn’t read the headline of this article. Because now, it appears that Ian McCall‘s ex-wife, Shay, is filing assault charges against Miller following a dust-up at his Mission Viejo home earlier this week.

McCall took to Instagram last night to post photos of the alleged assault, along with the following statement:

3 days I was physco ally assaulted by #mayhem #miller #ufc just for confronting him on something I didn’t want to be around. I was strangled…. Ext yes I did press charges.

Thank you everyone for your support he will pay when reality kicks in.. If he ever does and he is in jail.

The Greatest Erotic MMA Fan Fiction of All Time


(Come up with your own caption, perverts. / Photo via Getty)

UFC Fight Night 56 happened last night and it was pretty boring. During the lull in action, we wondered if there was a prominent MMA fan fiction scene. It turns out there was! The only drawback: A vast majority of the stories featured prominent fighters having sex with other prominent fighters.

We’re not really sure how to say this with our characteristic irreverent tone, so we’re just going to flat out say it: There’s a shit load of MMA slash fic out there. We found it. It’s…well, you need to see for yourself. We don’t like to exaggerate in the headlines but this stuff is far out.

Please don’t construe this as us trying to insult the author. We’re the guys who watch Ultimate Surrender, so we can’t judge how anyone gets their rocks off. We just thought these stories were kind of funny. We think it’s great someone is passionate enough about MMA to write this kind of stuff, honestly. Here are some excerpts from the more wild stories:

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…

Video: Mayhem Miller Is Detained By SWAT Units Following Hours-Long Standoff

Well yesterday took a turn for the weird, didn’t it? Here I was just sitting in my office, counting down the minutes until I could punch out early without the fear of BG’s almighty hand (he’s in NYC doing casting couch sessions for aspiring writers or some shit), when suddenly, everyone’s all like, “Hey Jared, Mayhem Miller’s live-tweeting his standoff with LA S.W.A.T right now. Maybe get on that.”

I tried to brush it off at first, thinking Miller is just going on one of his crazypants bananas rants again, but upon further, journalistical research (checking my Twitter feed), I find out that, yes, Mayhem is actually doing that thing people said he was. Crazy.

Thankfully, Miller surrendered a few hours after barricading himself inside his Mission Viejo home, bringing a bizarre ending to the latest in what has been a series of bizarre incidents involving Mayhem Miller. And today, some lovely, helicopter-shot footage of Miller being apprehended has been released for us all to watch before putting our heads in our hands and asking where it all went wrong.

Though absent of the crisis negotiation team and robotic bomb squad that were apparently present at the scene, the video captures roughly a dozen SWAT members exiting Mayhem’s home with a shirtless and pink-mohawked Miller in handcuffs. In the front there is Gator Dog, calmly patrolling the poolside and wondering why the men in masks are taking away his owner for the 1000th time. This whole thing makes me sad.

After the jump: A few photos/details of the arrest and the most insultingly generalized reaction piece yet.
