Mayhem Miller Blames Dana White for New York’s ban of MMA

By Christopher Murphy @MurphMMA

Former UFC fighter, Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, took to Twitter Monday in a series of attacks aimed directly at Dana White, blaming the UFC president for the state of New York’s continued ban on mixed martial arts.

After White posted this link to his Twitter, asking his followers, ‘Want to know the reason why MMA isn’t happening in NY?’ Miller issued a series of responses of his own, directly blaming White for the New York situation.

“I already know why it’s not legal in NY, @danawhite.  You keep blocking every attempt at a fighters union, firing everyone who suggests one.

“The unions are headquartered in NYC, and you can’t get in Without bowing your head to them.  Your inflated ego won’t allow you…

“@danawhite so you resort to getting smart people to write spin-propaganda, painting them in a bad light, while your monopoly marches on.”

White, for his part, has simply ignored the dialogue from Miller.  The UFC has issued several statements about the New York decision, with Lorenzo Fertitta issuing a statement last week describing the Las Vegas union that has been working to block MMA legislation.  Fertitta describes the political aggression against the UFC as “absurd, offensive, and completely erroneous,” citing the union’s exploitation of current social issues to make a case against mixed martial arts.

Miller (23-9) served as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter 14 and has fought three times for the UFC, losing all three fights.
