UFC Releases Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller Following UFC 146 Loss and Backstage ‘Incident’

Jason “Mayhem” Miller was on a short leash coming into his fight against CB Dollaway tonight at UFC 146.

He needed an impressive performance to get back in Dana White’s good graces following his disappointing performance against Michael Bisping late last year. Instead, he dropped a unanimous decision to Dollaway in a lackluster fight.

That alone was reason enough to expect a pink slip from the UFC, however an “incident” backstage following the fight apparently sped that process up.

Dana White wouldn’t get into the specifics of what went down, other than saying it was “just some bulls–t that I don’t want to talk about. We’re on a crazy string here of dumb bulls–t.” However, he did say he was going to release Mayhem anyways, regardless of what occurred backstage.
