Jason “Mayhem” Miller knows that his appearances on television have helped get him to where he is at today. However, that doesn’t mean Miller takes his fighting skills any less seriously than the next guy.
When “Mayhem” steps inside the Octagon in May to face C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146, he knows that his fighting career could hang in the balance. In fact, Miller seems to be putting that pressure on himself regardless of what others thing, as he told MMA Uncensored Live Thursday night.
I’m on my own chopping block. If I lose to him, I’m quitting! I don’t even deserve to be in there! There’s not an easy fight. In the UFC, there’s no easy fight. He doesn’t deserve to be in there with me, and I’ll prove it. We’re both in a similar spot in our career I guess. We’re both on the chopping block. That’s fine. I’m really happy with that.
Miller last fought late in 2011, falling to Michael Bisping. The two were coaches on The Ultimate Fighter, but Miller was unable to stay with the Brit after the first round. In Dollaway, the host of MTV’s Bully Beatdown will be going against another tireless worker who has excellent conditioning.
