Last month, UFC middleweight Jason “Mayhem” Miller (Pictured) was arrested in North Carolina for allegedly assaulting his sister at a party. During Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour on MMAFighting, Miller shed some light on the unfortunate incident.
“I’ll just say this, my sister was not in any state to drive, and I stopped her from driving,” Miller shared. “However, she was in a state to file a police report, which is now all over with. It’s all finished. It was unfounded … a Miller family experience that got out of hand.”
The Chatham County Sheriff’s Department stated Miller kept his sibling in a headlock and refused to allow her to leave. When she finally managed to escape, law enforcement was called to the scene and arrested Mayhem that evening for simple assault and false imprisonment.
“Look, my sister is a big girl,” Miller added. “She’s like 200 pounds and strong, muscle girl. I had to hold her, like, for real hold her. There’s no wrist-controlling your big sister. You’ve got to like, hold on to her.
“If I had to do it all over again, I would do exactly the same thing.”
Miller has already put the controversy behind him and is focused squarely on his shootout against Michael Bisping. The 185-pounders just finished serving as opposing coaches on the 14th season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
“It’s funny, because I’m in the stage of my career where people care about some petty redneck drama that I got into,” Miller said in closing. “It’s really surreal. I had TMZ beating down my door and trying to call me about that. I was like, are you serious? I didn’t even think that was a big deal.”
“The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale” takes place December 3rd inside The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
