A proposed trilogy bout between Jason “Mayhem” Miller and Tim Kennedy is now “unlikely,” according to Sherdog.

Another bout rumored for Strikeforce’s Jan. 29 card was a rubber match between middleweight talents Jason “Mayhem” Miller and Tim Kennedy. According to sources close to the situation, that bout is now unlikely. It’s still unclear whether there is any hope of Miller squaring off against welterweight champion Nick Diaz, as was originally speculated. The promotion has not spoken on whether either man will participate in the event.

A rumor surfaced over the weekend that Nick Diaz is warming up to the idea of fighting Mayhem at 185lbs., so maybe there’s still hope for that fight after all.
