According to MMAFighting, middleweight Jason “Mayhem” Miller has signed a muti-fight contract to return to the UFC.
Ironically, the boisterous 30-year-old was the quietest free agent in all of mixed martial arts. His Strikeforce contract apparently expired sometime following his TKO victory over Tim Stout at “Strikeforce: Nashville” last April.
The controversial 185-pounder went on to post a submission win over Kazushi Sakuraba at Dream.16 this past September. That was the last time Mayhem has competed professionally.
He has been honing his skills at Mark Munoz’s famed Reign Training Center in Southern California in the meantime.
Mayhem owns an underrated 24-7 (1 NC) record. He was initially dropped by the world’s premier MMA promotion after his unanimous decision loss to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 52 in April 2005. That was well before St-Pierre became GSP.
Miller’s manager Ryan Parsons wasn’t able to confirm exactly when fans can expect to see his client back inside the Octagon.
