The story of Jason Miller and Uriah Hall getting into an altercation at a recent BAMMA event was big news last week. Reports from the scene said that Mayhem had repeatedly said something along the lines of "bitch ass nigga" to Hall repeatedly, eventually resulting in Hall taking a swing that did not fully connect.
A short, 34 second video of the encounter has now surfaced and shows Mayhem holding up his middle fingers, yelling "bitch nigga," "fuck you, bitch nigga" and going to say it a third time when Hall lunges forward and throws a punch. The crowd quickly separates the two as Miller tries to rush forward.
After the first use of a racial slur* you can hear someone in the mass of people let loose with a "WHAT?!"
Miller has a documented history of mental illness, we all know that. It's fine and good to say that he needs help. But it's also entirely fair to say that he might also just kind of be a bad guy.
The video by MMA Interviews has the following description:
The scene begins with Jason "Mayhem" Miller being aggressive to a woman who is apparently his ex girlfriend who he has allegedly assaulted in the recent past. She was visibly emotional and upset and he continued to yell at her. Uriah Hall poked his head in the situation and instantly Miller turned his aggression to him. He began with continuous rants of, "N**** please." Then the video starts and you see the rest.
* Sorry, people who want to dispute it. A white man using any variation of "the n-word" in a derogatory way toward a black man is racist. If you're choosing to yell it at a black man during a fight, there's a point to using it beyond 'it's just a word.' You're choosing it over the myriad other words in your vocabulary and you're choosing it because of the emotional impact/reaction it will stir.
