Two days after Jason “Mayhem” Miller incited the biggest post-fight brawl in MMA history, the middleweight issued a formal apology on his website early Monday morning for his inappropriate actions over the weekend.
This is what the controversial fighter posted on MayhemMiller.com:
“I would like to formally apologize to CBS, Strikeforce and all fans of mixed martial arts for my role in the events following the ‘Strikeforce: Nashville’ event. In retrospect, my timing could not have been worse to ask for my rematch with Jake [Shields], and I take full responsibility for entering the cage and setting off a chain of events that cast a dark shadow on the sport. I’ve been a fighter and a fan of MMA for over 12 years and would never do anything to intentionally tarnish the sport I’ve given my life to. In the excitement of the moment, I let my emotions run high and made a bad choice that resulted in a debacle. For that, I sincerely apologize.”
