More Tweets of the Day: Mayhem Miller says MMA is banned in New York because of Dana White

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

Ex-UFC fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller went on a twitter tirade, blaming MMA's ban in New York on the ego of UFC president Dana White.

Jason "Mayhem" Miller has long been one of the biggest characters in MMA. From his flashy entrances to his MTV show, he was one of the guys that was able to be in the business of himself for a long time and didn't need the UFC. Eventually though, it came time for him to sign with the big organization again (he once fought Georges St. Pierre in the octagon in 2005), and it didn't go well for him. A TUF coaching gig and two straight losses, and he was on his way out. He has since had legal troubles and hasn't competed due to a knee injury.

Well last night, his frustration with UFC president Dana White bubbled over once again and he turned to twitter to vent. Basically, he pointed the finger at White as the reason why MMA can't get legalized in New York, and went after him for not allowing a fighter's union:

After that though, he started veering off onto other tangents. His responses to fans tweeting him back involved talking about his knee again amongst other things:

Today's tweets are suddenly about how much money fighters make. Oh, and his knee again:

He also stated in responses that he had avoided the UFC for a decade until they bought everyone else, and said that he was "going to change this broken system".

This isn't the first time Mayhem has gone after Dana on twitter - he did the same thing last October in regards to the knee injury thing and Dana fired back. I'm sure this won't be the last we hear from either side, since both men have no issues with speaking their mind.
