UFC Video: Mark Munoz Explains Mayhem Miller's Behavior Backstage At UFC 146

UFC Middleweight Jason "Mayhem" Miller was cut following his UFC 146 loss to C.B. Dollaway. At the post-fight press conference UFC president Dana White made a cryptic reference to some "bullsh**t backstage" that prompted Mayhem's immediate termination from the organization. Miller did an interview with Ariel Helwani earlier this week and denied that there had been any incidents post-fight but did allude to an exchange he'd had with Burt Watson, the UFC staffer who deals with the fighters on fight nights.

Now Miller's friend and training partner (and UFC MW contender) Mark Munoz sat down for a video interview with MMAInterviews.TV explaining another incident he thinks might have played a factor. Here's the video, quotes are after the jump...

First by way of background, Fighter's Only linked to this tweet about the incident in their post on the topic:

Here's what Munoz had to say in the video interview:

With Mayehm. Nothing happened like everyone thinks happened. He was of course dejected from the fight and he went in the back and saw something he wanted and they told him he couldn't have it and he just walked off and said something underneath his breath. He didn't throw things or wasn't anything like that. He just said something underneath his breath and people just got upset by that. I'm not going to tell you everything out of respect for Mayhem but to tell you the God's honest truth, he didn't act out.
