TMZ originally broke the story yesterday that former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller had been arrested for burglary. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office received a call from Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo of a burglary in progress.
The deputies arrived to find CDs and literature scattered throughout, picture frames broken and the first two floors of the building covered in fire extinguisher spray. When they reached the second floor, Miller was found awake and coherent but naked on a couch. Miller was taken into custody and medically evaluated.
Miller lost his last two fights in the UFC since making his return and was released by the organization. Miller was known for his outlandish antics on his way to the cage for a fight. While in the Dream organization in Japan, he would perform a full choreographed dance with multiple female dancers taking part as he would come out from behind the curtain. He was also the host for the MTV show “Bully Beatdown.”
On Saturday, Miller got into an exchange with UFC president Dana White. While Miller tweeted “You never begged me to retire @danawhite you must not love me. That’s a shame, I love you. Cont. It’s ok. Since you never allowed me to officially retire, I am now a Warrior for Peace and Ultimate Fighter for Justice.”
Dana White assuming that Miller was up to his normal antics replied “@mayhemmiller lol retire Mayhem I’M BEGGIN U!!!”
Miller responded by telling White to “Kill yourself @danawhite we are all begging you.”
Dana White ended the exchange with “@mayhemmiller don’t get fuckin bummed out u asked me!!”
Dana said in an interview after UFC 150 that once he realized Miller wasn’t kidding, he felt bad, especially since the fighter had discussed finding peace outside of the cage.
