Dana White Disavows Mayhem Miller: “He’s Not a UFC Fighter”
Dana White has been the center of Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller’s banter for a while now; but following Miller’s recent arrest for domestic violence this week, White had the opportunity to share his opinion on the former fighter. To no one’s surprise, White is “not a big fan.”

Dana White spoke recently about former UFC fighter, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, following Miller’s recent arrest for domestic violence.
“I don’t think you can compare him to any other fighter. He’s always been… let’s just say, not normal. His life is bad enough without me adding to it. It drives me crazy about fighters doing this. The guy has had 40-something fights and he’s only fought in the UFC three times, and he’s never won one fight [in the UF]. People like to talk about him since he’s retired, ‘Oh, he’s a UFC fighter.’ He’s not a UFC fighter. This guy fought in the UFC three times and never won one fight. I wouldn’t compare him to any one else in the sport, because I never met anyone like ‘Mayhem’ Miller. I’m not a big fan, I never have been a fan, and I’m not gonna be a fan anytime soon.”
Of course, much of White’s hostility toward Miller stems less from the fighter’s record and more from Miller’s constant public hatred of all things Dana White and the UFC. Of course, when you lose like this, you’re not helping your case much either.
Though it’s unclear what will happen to ‘Mayhem’ Miller, one thing is certain: he will not fight in the UFC any more.
