According to several reports from the scene, Ultimate Fighter runner up Uriah Hall and former TUF coach Jason "Mayhem" Miller got into it at BAMMA USA's BAMMAUSA Commerce Casino Badbeat 11 event last night.
The Clinch Report posted this account on Facebook:
While awaiting a photo op at Bamma USA, several celebrities and fighters began making there way into the cage for photos. At some point, Uriah Hall and Jason Mayhem Miller began a heated confrontation. I was literally right next to Hall. By now a bunch of fans had surrounded, and the commission, MMA Interviews Spencer Lazara, a few security guards and myself began creating distance between the two. When more guard arrived, Mayhem leaned in and called Uriah a "Bitch as N^GGA!" at least 6 times. Each one more venomous, each one more taunting, and flinching at Uriah with his head. After the sixth racist line, Uriah who can easily say Miller was acting aggressive and belligerent, responded to one of Millers movements with a glance Right hand, that did make contact!
Uriah was beside himself. He had every right to be angry. I really Hope the UFC doesn't suspend Uriah Hall, he was put into a corner by a complete lunatic, one that I can say I was a huge fan of, but not anymore. Jason Mayhem Miller has decided to remain relevant by hating on those who actually are! Very disappointing. I am actually filled with mixed emotions, because again Mayhem is obviously at rock bottom. In fact, he is just Jason Miller, his rascal-like Mayhem, is long gone. In its place, all that is left is a bitter, ex jock, who is burining every bridge he comes across. He will not be allowed back at Bamma USA. And this comes straight from the top!
Clinch Report's Jonathan King also emailed out the following:
While awaitng the main event, several fighters and celebs were called into the cage for a photo op with Brett. I was by the back with the Commision. Mayhem and Uriah were surrounded by a scrum, and it looked like good hearted shit talking, but it turned nasty quick!
More security rushed in to separate but by now there was a bunch of people around with Iphones out, so basically a few journalists and a few security guards tried to separate them.
When more help arrived, Mayhem started leaning in, kind of like flinching with his head, and kept repeating "Your a Bitch Ass Nigga!" at least 6 times, each time with added taunting. When he leaned in for a 7th, Hall hit him with a right hand! Didnt catch him flush, but left a noticeable welt.
I then with Jose from Bamma walked Uriah to the elevator, where he was still looking for Mayhem. He was heated and rightfully so! Security and Jackie Denkin were able to calm Uriah down before he left. When we left Mayhem was at the bar, drunk, spilling his beer. Surrounded by marks. It was a very sad day, Disgusting behavior by Mayhem, I hope Uriah doesnt get in trouble. Please if you do write about this, remember Uriah was trying to be calm, and there was no where to go, he had a wall of people behind him.
He was wrong for punching him, but Mayhem was acting aggressive.
I was on Uriah Hall's left shoulder the entire time. There is no mistaking the words, im sure it will be on youtube! But not by me. Disgusting!
An unrepentant Mayhem tweeted the following after the incident:
HAHAHA FUCK YOU BITCH NIGGA— ɹƎ˥˥IW WƎH⅄∀W (@mayhemmiller) October 26, 2013
As for Mayhem this is just another embarrassing incident in his sad post-fight career descent.
