Take with a grain of salt. Last night Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller put on his usual candid persona in an interview with Spike’s MMA Uncensored Live. The 31-year-old mixed martial artist was quick to agree that he has much to prove to the fans as well as himself. So much in fact that he’s willing to put his career on the line. As usual though, Miller announced his ultimatum in a sarcastic tone. Following a demoralizing loss to Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping at the TUF 14 finale, Miller has plans to make a big statement in his upcoming bout with C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146 on May 26th.
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. I’ll prove it in under a round, because, we see…I tend to get tired in the second round (laughs). 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.”
Likely a jab at his upcoming opponent, Miller is confident that he will walk through the former Arizona State wrestler.
I don’t get my ass kicked by sucky guys. I beat the Hell out of ‘em. I just came up short that night. I’m not gonna make excuses for it. There’s no point to doin’ it. You know what I mean?”
You know what? I have a new rule. I don’t make excuses for fights until eight months after. So, I still have like five more months. I’ll come back on here in five months and tell you guys what happened. There’s no way to explain a fight you lost without going, ‘Well, it was ‘cuz of this,’ or ‘It was ‘cuz of that.’ There’s no way. And I’m not that kinda guy. That’s not what I do.”
