Jason “Mayhem” Miller is known as much for his outside-the-Octagon skills as he is for the ones he displays inside it.
However, that doesn’t mean he isn’t a highly-skilled mixed martial artist.
On May 26, Miller plans on showing C.B. Dollaway just how great he can be when the two square off on the prelims of UFC 146 from Las Vegas.
After a loss to Michael Bisping following a stint as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter left Miller feeling down, he went on a training mission, bettering his skills across the world. In Dollaway, “Mayhem” feels like he already has the win in the bag.
“I just look at who he’s fought in the past, and I look at – you know – I look at who he’s fought in the past, and how I match up with them, and I know that….this should be an easy night for me,” said Miller, in a recent interview with the UFC’s official website. “On top of that, I trained my ass off. I’m not gonna make this a personal thing with the guy, but at the same time, I’m not gonna pretend to respect him.”
Miller came over from Strikeforce and jumped right into The Ultimate Fighter. He was defeated by Bisping in a match he doesn’t like to talk about. Now, he’ll face Dollaway, who is in a similar position following back-to-back losses.
