It took a while, and in the end it was pretty much unnecessary because he had already been forgiven, but Jason "Mayhem" Miller has offered an apology to Uriah Hall.
If you're unfamiliar with why Miller felt the need to extend an olive branch to Hall, we need to go back to the night of October 25. The location was the Commerce Casino in Commerce, California. Hall was attending BAMMA USA's Badbeat 11 event as the casino as a show of support for his Reign MMA teammate Rachael Cummins, who was fighting on the card.
Hall, speaking to MMAWeekly, said that he had been approached by the promotion to step into the cage along with some other fighters that were in attendance that night. As Hall made his way toward the cage, he came across a group of fighters that looked to be protecting a woman. That's when Miller came upon the scene and started to raise his voice at Hall.
Miller then repeatedly used a racial slur while yelling at Hall. Hall reacted to Miller's words by taking a swing at Miller before the two were separated by security. The incident was caught on video.
After the incident, Miller tweeted the following:
HAHAHA FUCK YOU BITCH NIGGA— j (@mayhemmiller) October 26, 2013
Miller recently sent the following tweet, informing his followers that he had apologized to Hall in private, before offering a more public apology:
Although i have done so privately, I would like to publicly apologize to @UriahHallMMA for my ghetto behavior. I am sorry and wish you luck.— j (@mayhemmiller) November 15, 2013
Hall, responded with a tweet of his own:
@mayhemmiller it's all good homie already forgave ya keep ya head up— uriah hall (@UriahHallMMA) November 16, 2013
