Nick Diaz’s Cesar Gracie camp has put a message out that Jason “Mayhem” Miller will not take the their offer of a catchweight fight at 178 lbs. Though Miller has fought at that weight as the Gracie camp point out, Miller has said that he is unable to perform at his best at that sucked up weight.

Jason “Mayhem” Miller has opted to not take a fight with Nick Diaz in January at a catchweight of 178lbs.

Despite having previously fought at the 170lbs weight limit, Miller now says that he is unwilling to meet at 178 and instead wants Strikeforce’s Welterweight Champion to move up to middleweight to fight him.

Miller has stated he would be willing to lose 2 pounds and fight at 183lbs. As of yet Miller has defeated none of the top Strikeforce contenders but did win a fight on MTV’s Bully Beatdown show.

Strikeforce will now be searching for a new opponent for Diaz for their January card.
