    Jason 'Mayhem' Miller apologizes to Uriah Hall
    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2013/11/2...or-racial-slur

    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.

    Miller recently sent the following tweet, informing his followers that he had apologized to Hall in private, before offering a more public apology:

    j ✔ @mayhemmiller

    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.
    4:37 PM - 15 Nov 2013
    all, responded with a tweet of his own:

    uriah hall ✔ @UriahHallMMA

    @mayhemmiller it's all good homie already forgave ya keep ya head up

    Uriah Hall Tells His Side of the Story on Recent Scuffle with Mayhem Miller
    http://www.mmaweekly.com/uriah-hall-...-mayhem-miller
    Hall, however, told MMAWeekly.com how things occurred from his perspective.

    Hall attended the BAMMA USA event to support fellow Reign MMA fighter Rachael Cummins. He was approached by the promoters to go into the ring and be recognized alongside other celebrities in attendance. This included Miller.

    As he was making his way to the ring, he came up to a group of Reign MMA’s athletes who were huddled around a female.

    “It was like they were protecting her,” Hall recalled. Uriah approached to check on the situation, and that is when Mayhem made his presence known.

    “Initially, I saw a big bald-headed dude. Then it hit me that it was Mayhem Miller. I was a little star struck, at first,” said Hall. “He was yelling at me though, and wanted to talk to the girl. I guess it was his ex. I tried to stay calm and just diffuse things. I was still kind of shocked that it was all happening.”

    The yelling from Miller attracted the attention of several onlookers, including security guards. Hall said that once security got there, Miller’s aggression escalated. As a video put out by MMAInterviews.tv’s Spencer Lazara shows, Mayhem continued to yelling, getting more aggressive in his tone, which led to the eventual swing from Hall.

    “I think I just barely clipped him,” he recalled.

    Security quickly removed both Hall and Miller from the event floor, but it didn’t end at that point. Hall admitted to later looking for Miller in the casino, until his anger subsided. He later apologized to security. Meanwhile, Miller took to his phone tweeting and texting more racially charged comments to Hall.

    “I don’t know how he got my number,” said Hall. “I asked and his response was, ‘I am Mayhem Miller, I know everything.’”

    Hall was back in training Saturday morning, and considered the incident to be behind him. He says genuinely, “I feel sorry for him. I hope he gets the help that he needs before it gets worse.”

    I can't possibly agree with a sports league condoning the breaking of the law through offering the offender a monetary incentive for doing so. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty positive that is at the minimum some opening the UFC up for civil liability if a suit is filed. Offering to pay for his legal defense- I'm all for it.

    Mayhem is in crisis and is a prime candidate to eat a Glock sandwich judging by his public antics and bizarre rants. I just hope it's all an act and he can somehow clear his mind of the demons he possesses.

    Maybe it is because Dana White doesn't like men who abuse women?
    Yeaaaaah sure, he is so concerned about that!
    He obviously thought "Oh my God! that dude was harrasing his ex GF? Damn, that is so bad!!! I do not give a fuck if that was Mayhem Miller or anyone else! A guy was harrasing his ex girlfriend! He definitely needed an ass kicking. I am giving Urijah the money for stepping up. I really hate women abusers"

    Man, you realize that for Dana White everything is about image and money right?
    Why he pretends that he loves so much the gay community and everyone else? You seriously think that he is so pro gays?
    Obviously not, he does not give a fuck about them. But he needs to have a good public image, he needs people to say "Oh he is a good guy, he supports them!"

    Same here, he does not give a single fuck if someone was harrasing or not his ex GF. That is not his business and he knows it.
    But he simply uses the opportunity so people think that he is such a good person.

    He also gave Jones a bonus for stopping a robber 2 years ago? I do not think so.
    I do not remember him giving Huerta any extra money.

    He is giving a bonus to Urijah Hall not because he defended a woman, but because he tried to punch someone that has talked a lot of shit about Dana.

    Dana White is so happy because he dislikes Mayhem a lot, but seriously he is going to give Urijah a bonus for that?
    I wonder what would have happened if it was not Mayhem but some other person involved. I do not think Urijah would be getting any bonus and probably he would get fired.
    Maybe it is because Dana White doesn't like men who abuse women? Mayhem was there harassing his ex and Urijah stepped in. Thats how the whole thing started. It might have nothing to do with the fact he dislikes Mayhem and just the fact he likes seeing guys step up to women abusers.

    I don't remember but did he throw money or something Huerta's way when he KO'd that guy from the Longhorns?

    Uncle Dana gonna give Uriah a bonus for smacking him apparently... but that was some pussy shit honestly. The way this was talked about he clocked his ass, this was hardly anything. I've seen better hits at High School football games

    Uriah Hall won’t be receiving any disciplinary action from the UFC for throwing a punch at Jason “Mayhem” Miller.

    Quite the contrary, UFC President Dana White posted on Twitter that he plans on giving Hall a bonus for taking a swing at Mayhem during a nasty altercation that took place over the weekend.




    Controversy seems to follow Mayhem wherever he goes, and he was right on schedule during “BAMMA USA: Bad Beat 11,” a local event held in Commerce, California. According to a tweet from MMA reporter Erik Fontanez, Hall threw a punch after Mayhem used a racial slur.

    After a brief scuffle, both men were quickly separated by security and escorted from the event.

    It didn’t take long to confirm the story once the news went viral. Mayhem, who has shown no remorse for his behavior, immediately sent out a tweet after the incident using the same racial slur he was accused of using during the scuffle.

    On Monday, MMAinterviews’ Spencer Lazara uploaded a video on YouTube of the actual altercation along with a backstory of how the entire situation unfolded:

    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.
    Here's the video link of the incident:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OpoPE-mdfo

    It’s hard to believe that Mayhem was once considered one of MMA’s most beloved stars. His notoriety had climbed to new heights after being cast as the host of MTV’s hit reality series Bully Beatdown, which he balanced alongside his MMA career.

    After minor stints in Strikeforce and DREAM, Mayhem was finally offered his second shot in the UFC as a head coach on The Ultimate Fighter 14. His resurgence as a relevant MMA star was short-lived. After suffering back-to-back losses, he was released from the promotion in May 2012.

    Mayhem has really lived up to his nickname in the past year. He has been arrested several times for alleged charges of nude vandalism and domestic abuse.

    The downward spiral of Mayhem’s life and career has played out in front of fans like a perpetual soap opera with each controversial act more shocking than the next. During an interview with MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani, White admitted that he has never been a fan of Mayhem:

    I don't think you can compare him to any other fighter. He's always been…let's just say, not normal. …He's not a UFC fighter. This guy fought in the UFC three times and never won one fight. I wouldn't compare him to anybody else in the sport because I never met anyone like Mayhem Miller. I'm not a big fan, I never have been a fan, and I'm not going to be a fan anytime soon.

    While a paycheck won’t cure the sting of Mayhem’s comments, White’s kind gesture can hopefully help Hall put the entire incident in the past and focus on getting his own career back on track.

    Hall’s upcoming UFC 168 bout against Chris Leben could be his last chance to prove he deserves a spot on the UFC roster.

    I do not think any promotion would want to sign Mayhem. That guy has serious mental issues
