After posting an underwhelming performance in his anticipated return to the big leagues, UFC president Dana White wasn’t shy about expressing his displeasure in Jason “Mayhem” Miller’s (Pictured) showing. Although his words were harsh, Miller completely agrees with his boss’ pointblank assessment.
“Dana White was right,” Miller admitted on his official website. “He made some disparaging comments about my performance, and I agree with him. I displayed the worst of everything that night in the Octagon. I was tense in round one and I locked up after that.
“I didn’t perform to my potential and I take full responsibility for it. That wasn’t a UFC caliber performance and I’m not happy about it.”
When asked if Miller would be granted another opportunity with the UFC after ending his six-year hiatus with a convincing TKO loss to Michael Bisping, White sounded unenthusiastic and unsure. While the reality exists for a one-and-done return to the organization, the 30-year-old plans to grow from his humbling defeat.
“I made a lot of mistakes in this story – during the camp, during the fight – but the key to living life is learning from your mistakes and making positive change,” Miller expressed. “I feel very positive right now … I will continue on this amazing journey, looking to make the most epic stories that I can.”
Miller owns a respectable 24-8 pro record and is currently honing his skills in Holland. There’s still no official word on his UFC fate.
