Jason 'Mayhem' Miller Signs With The UFC

Jason "Mayhem" Miller is going back to the UFC.

The popular middleweight has signed a new multi-fight agreement with the organization, Miller's manager Ryan Parsons confirmed with MMA Fighting.

The 30-year-old Miller (24-7, 1 NC) was able to sign with the UFC due to the fact that his contract with Strikeforce had expired. No word just yet on when his first fight back inside the Octagon will take place.

"Mayhem" had not competed for Strikeforce since last April when he defeated Tim Stout on the undercard of Strikeforce: Nashville. He went on to defeat one of his MMA idols, Kazushi Sakuraba, at DREAM.16 in September, which stands as his last fight to date.

He was close to returning to action against the likes of Nick Diaz and Tim Kennedy, but for various reasons, some even still unknown, those fights never materialized.

The star of MTV's Bully Beatdown last fought for the UFC in 2005 when he dropped a unanimous decision to Georges St-Pierre. Two years later, Miller returned to Zuffa, defeating Hiromitsu Miura via unanimous decision at WEC 27.

Miller was a guest on a recent episode of The MMA Hour, and he appeared excited at the prospect of facing some of the UFC's best middleweights.

"I will beat the brakes off most of the guys in the middleweight divisions in the UFC," he said. "I guaran-damn-tee it."


Who do you think he will fight first?

Bisping and Miller as TUF 14 coaches. Bank on it!

Great news he's in the UFC though!!

Slick grappling, that's it though.

Not really a fan of him or his show, I just think he's too gimmicky he'll be an average fighter at best though, I doubt he beats Anderson, Vitor, Chael, Yushin, Maia, Bisping, Belcher, or Stann, and predict he'd struggle with Santiago, Leben, and Wand.

I really do not think he will have an impact at 185. He won't beat any of the top 10 in the division.

Saw this on his twitter a few minutes ago.

I smell some TUF 14 hilarity in the future. But to be honest, I think stylistically he can beat some of the top MWs. But he's probably not going to get a title shot, or a top contender shot.

His stand up is the main reason for this IMO. While its erratic and kind of unorthodox, its stiff and it seems to take him a while to loosen up. His JJ defense is unmatched as far as I have seen, but his technical wrestling is in need of major work. For those reasons I see some damn good fights from Mayhem. But never a title shot.
