With a nickname like Mayhem, most expect Jason Miller to get a little out of hand; in fact, “a little out of hand” seems to be Miller’s baseline running speed. Even still, the news that he was arrested in Chatham County, North Carolina for allegedly assaulting his sister — putting her in a headlock — gave many pause.
With the debut of The Ultimate Fighter 14 — on which he appears as a coach opposite Michael Bisping — rapidly approaching, Miller appeared on this week’s episode of MMAFighting.com’s The MMA Hour with host Ariel Helwani to discuss, amongst other things, the incident with his sister.
“It wasn’t alleged, there was an actual altercation,” Miller said. “I’ll just say this: my sister was not in any state to drive, and I stopped her from driving. However, she was in a state to file a police report, which is now all over with. It’s all finished. It was unfounded…a Miller family experience that got out of hand.”
Describing the situation as “petty Redneck drama,” Miller said that the whole thing is behind him and that his focus now is only fighting Michael Bisping.
“It’s all over with,” he said. “It was a heat of the moment kind of thing and, I don’t know, if I had to do it all over again I would do exactly the same thing.”
The Ultimate Fighter 14 premieres this September 21 on Spike TV.
