Inside Fights » Jason Miller Scott Coker Opens Up About Giving Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller A Second Chance In Bellator Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:55:12 +0000 Jason Miller has as many stories written about his activities outside of the Octagon as he does inside of it.

‘Mayhem’ has competed for Dream, Strikeforce and UFC in his 14-year career and has had numerous issues outside of his fights.

Following his release from UFC in 2012, he was arrested under suspicion of burglary, after being found naked in his local church. Charges were dropped after the pastor came forward in Miller’s defense. In 2013, Miller was apprehended again, this time under charges of domestic abuse. He would be arrested two more times that year. Once, on a new set of abuse charges related to his initial confrontation and then again, in October of 2013, for violating a restraining order.

For the past year, however, Miller has remained out of the public eye. He was brought in as a training partner for Quinton Jackson while Rampage prepared for Bellator 120. It’s this low demeanor that has Scott Coker considering bringing Miller into Bellator.

The Bellator President spoke about the possibilities on The MMA Hour.

“You know, I’ll tell you, it’s worth a conversation, because everybody deserves to have a second chance. He’s a great fighter, believe me. I just hope he’s okay. And if he’s okay, then we can take a more serious step. But the first step would be, you know, is he okay? That’s really what it comes down to.”×120.jpg

Jason “Mayhem” Miller Triggers Killer Instinct in Uriah Hall – Starts Brawl at BAMMA USA Event Sat, 26 Oct 2013 17:00:03 +0000 Jason Miller has caused more shenanigans outside the cage with UFC fighters since signing with the company than inside it. Going 0-2 in his latest stint, two bad losses to CB Dolloway and Michael Bisping, the former Strikeforce stalwart and Bully Beatdown host apparently hasn’t done trying to start things with UFC fighters.

Last night it was with Uriah Hall at a BAMMA USA event. The Clinch Report has the story with a first-hand account:

While awaiting a photo op at Bamma USA, several celebrities and fighters began making there way into the cage for photos. At some point, Uriah Hall and Jason Mayhem Miller began a heated confrontation. I was literally right next to Hall. By now a bunch of fans had surrounded, and the commission, MMA Interviews Spencer Lazara, a few security guards and myself began creating distance between the two. When more guard arrived, Mayhem leaned in and called Uriah a “Bitch as N^GGA!” at least 6 times. Each one more venomous, each one more taunting, and flinching at Uriah with his head. After the sixth racist line, Uriah who can easily say Miller was acting aggressive and belligerent, responded to one of Millers movements with a glance Right hand, that did make contact! Uriah was beside himself.

He had every right to be angry. I really Hope the UFC doesn’t suspend Uriah Hall, he was put into a corner by a complete lunatic, one that I can say I was a huge fan of, but not anymore. Jason Mayhem Miller has decided to remain relevant by hating on those who actually are! Very disappointing. I am actually filled with mixed emotions, because again Mayhem is obviously at rock bottom. In fact, he is just Jason Miller, his rascal-like Mayhem, is long gone. In its place, all that is left is a bitter, ex jock, who is burning every bridge he comes across. He will not be allowed back at Bamma USA. And this comes straight from the top!
