For the first time since getting handled by Michael Bisping at The Ultimate Fighter 14 finale, Jason “Mayhem” Miller has talked about what went wrong in his return to the big show:

“I'll admit that. It felt weird walking out there. I didn't feel like my normal self, and it really showed. I couldn't get relaxed, couldn't perform to my potential. And I'm not taking anything from Bisping, but it was definitely not my best performance. I didn't think that that layoff would do anything to me. But man, it was apparent that it did. I kind of freaked out in there. I've got to admit it. I usually sit down on the [stool] and get a burst of energy back. But man, I sat down and I was sucking wind. I didn't feel like myself. I was like, man, what's going on with me here? I just couldn't get back refocused. In the training room, I did it just fine. But inside the Octagon, I didn't come back like I do. I was going, where am I? Usually, by the end of the 60 seconds I'm recharged. I wasn't recharged at all. I was more tired than when I sat down.”

UFC President Dana White has said that Miller probably won't be getting another shot in the UFC after the lop-sided loss, what do you think?
