Immediately following his TKO loss to Michael Bisping at the Ultimate Fighter Finale, UFC President Dana White was positive that it would be Jason Miller's final fight in the UFC. The President went so far as to call it the most one-sided fight in UFC history. When the ratings for the finale were released, fans were hopeful that White would change his mind and give Mayhem another shot in the promotion. Miller came off as an extremely likable coach during the season, connecting with his fighters and giving them great advice in the cage.
In the days following the event, the "Mayhem Monkeys" showed their support for Miller by continuously tweeting the President, pleading their case to give Miller another shot in the UFC. White, as he does, fielded the comments and used them in his decision regarding Miller.
After having a couple days to mull over his initial comments, the UFC President is still unsure of Mayhem's future. Following the UFC on Fox press conference on Wednesday, members of the media spoke with White to see if he's decided to give Miller another shot in the octagon. The President had some choice words regarding Miller, saying:
"It was bad. To be honest, and my Twitter's been blowing up with Mayhem fans blasting me, but facts are facts: It was the worst standup I've ever seen in my life. I don't know if I've ever seen standup that bad."
Media members asked if it was just a case of ring rust, a valid question as Miller had not been in a ring or cage in 14 months since defeating Kazushi Sakuraba at Dream 16. White wouldn't accept that as an excuse for Miller's performance, stating:
"I don't even know what to call it. I've seen guys with some ring rust. Some of the punches that were thrown by Mayhem Miller in this fight, you can go to a girls Tae Bo class and see better form in standup. It was embarrassing."
Dana White ended the discussion with some choice words saying, "The guy's been in the business over 10 years. It looked like it was his first fight ever. It was the weirdest thing I've ever seen."
