Jason “Mayhem” Miller (Pictured) has been granted a reprieve. On Saturday night, the world’s premiere mixed martial arts promotion announced the middleweight will meet C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146.
The event takes place May 26th inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. A blockbuster heavyweight title bout between champion Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem is expected to headline the show.
After serving as coach on “The Ultimate Fighter 14,” Miller ended his six-year UFC hiatus with a lopsided unanimous decision defeat to Michael Bisping. UFC president Dana White was so unimpressed that he claimed Miller’s days were numbered.
Thankfully for Mayhem and his monkeys, he’ll get another go.
Miller won’t be the only one who will likely be fighting for his Octagon life, as Dollaway has dropped his last two big league scraps. The former “The Ultimate Fighter 7″ contestant was seen this past April losing via TKO to Jared Hamman. Prior to that, “The Doberman” was put down by Miller’s Reign Training Center teammate, Mark Munoz.
Here are the athletes expected to perform on Memorial Day weekend:
