Jason “Mayhem” Miller recently resigned with the UFC, where he looks forward to finally fighting top tier fighters. During his recent two-fight tenure with Strikeforce, Miller was forced to sit on the shelf for much of the last year due to a confusing CBS ban which stemmed from his role in the on-air altercation between himself and the Cesar Gracie team which occurred at Strikeforce: Nashville.
The host of MTV’s Bully Beatdown, Miller was originally scheduled to face Aaron Simpson in his UFC debut, but received a step up in competition and an opportunity to immediately increase his stock with UFC fans when he was awarded a coaching spot on The Ultimate Fighter 14 opposite UK standout Michael Bisping.
Though taping of the show has yet to begin, Miller and Bisping have already started in with the back-and-forth, with the latest shot being delivered by Mayhem in an interview with Heavy.com.
“I feel great getting the ‘TUF’ spot. It’s a little early to start the smack talk, but I’m going to beat the bangers and mash out of Bisping after my team smashes his team,” said the 30-year-old. “Now that Osama is dead, Bisping is the most hated man in America. Everybody hates that guy. I wonder what it’s like to actually be hated that much. You would have to put a terrorist attack together to be hated any more than he is.”
Miller and Bisping are slated to square off at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale, which is expected to go down on December 3 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
