"Mayhem" Unimpressed With Promotional Sonnen | UFC NEWS

Fight Hub TV recently spoke with recent retiree, Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, asking him who he thinks makes the better promotions for a fight between himself and Chael Sonnen:

“I don’t know. I almost think Chael does, only because he’s got a lot of pre-written bits,” said Miller. “I’m going to start writing from now on and really focusing my writing on making hilarious promos. I feel like that’s the only way to beat Chael in the promo game.”

Although Miller has always sported some pretty elaborate antics, he believes that these acts help the sport, rather than detract from it.

“I think that’s a good thing for mixed martial arts. It’s great to showcase some personality and I feel like the UFC is really behind Chael, so they definitely push his personality. For us to showcase our personalities is a step in the right direction as far as mixed martial arts goes.”

Miller recently retired after being cut following his UFC 146 loss to C.B. Dollaway which was proceeded by an undisclosed incident backstage.

    Mayhem just blows so much dick! He is made cause Chael makes more money, even though Chael blows just as much! An I know…here comes WreslingRules to defend is dry humping lovers…BRING IT ON!!!

    • WrestlingRules says:

      I am a bit annoyed that you have actually challenged me to debate you and I have actually allowed that to get to me and prompt me to respond to your dribble. But that said, Sonnen will cripple your little superhero Silva this time around.. Sonnen tko rd4..

      On Topic: Oh and Mayhem, he was actually being complimentary to Sonnen. Too bad Mayhem can’t fight as well as he talks like Sonnen can.

      • HIIIPower716 says:

        You really think Chael is going to win????….TKO at that?????

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Yes I do…He’ll tko him r4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Joe Bidden says:

          Would you be so kind as to type up a letter stating that you were in fact wrong and Sonnen is, in fact, all hype when he loses to Silva? Again?

          :P

        • Kevin says:

          Anderson silva has never been ko or tko’d an the dudes training regiment consists of him getting ground and pounded in his face.,,he just sits there an eats it if Chael sonnen wins this fight it will be by decision otherwise silva is gonna tko or submit him after his feeling out process

        • Ben Nusbaum says:

          Not this again. Sonnen on TRT doesn’t equal TKO, let a lone KO, so why will supposedly clean Sonnen get that job done?

      • Rodriguez says:

        Ha I am a big fan of your debate is all, and Silva is my superhero, mostly because he has no need for TrT and he uses his natural talent. Possibly, Sonnen could win, but ultimately he will either be knocked out or submitted…rd 3.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Rd2….I believe I won rd1, what say you?

          Ok first TRT is legal right??? Second, do you not think Silva has NOT or is NOT taking steroids???? Why do think the waits so long in between fights??? But let’s forget that for now….Silva is not good enough to keep Sonnen from taking him down and believe me, Sonnen will tko Silva this time and I say by r4..Sonnen does have to prove though that he can prevent Silva from tapping him out. It;s really the only way Silva has to win this one. I believe you will be going down in this round as well….

        • Rodriguez says:

          But if Silva understands and is well aware that Sonnen’s game plan is simply to take him down, don’t you believe he would be more prepared by this point?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Yah he will be, BUT EVERYBODY knows that they need to be prepared for Sonnen to take them down and Silva KNEW THAT the first fight. But knowing it and training it and then trying to stop it is COMPLETELY different. For anybody who actually fights, THEY know the difference between training and the real fight. Silva knows that he needs to tag him to ko him or to be lucky enough to tap him out again. Silva’s not stupid, he knows it he can’t do this he loses…..

        • Rodriguez says:

          Good point, I say you win this one!

        • Xaninho says:

          Silva didn’t even try to stuff the takedowns. He promised Nogueira before the fight he’d submit Sonnen.

          This time he will keep it standing and punish Sonnen on the feet.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          So X what you are saying is that Silva, to prove a point, took a beating for 4.5 rounds just so he could finally get a sub???? Is that what you are saying was the reason for the way the fight went??? LMFAO…now you have gone into bizarro land…Besides, I’ve read you say before, it was TRT and Silva was hurt and now its cuz he wanted to stand up for the Nog’s.

          Come on now…..I’ll chalk that up to Dutch humor.

          Silva will be schooled again and the only way he wins is just like last time a lucky choke or a lucky hit….And Silva knows it.

        • Xaninho says:

          The hit won’t be lucky. Silva has proven he can knock people out easily. He doesn’t have pillowfists like Sonnen.

        • Ben Nusbaum says:

          TRT is not legal for fighters to be takin as far the rules are concerned. Some talent have exemptions, but on the whole it is not okay. Is it LEGAL in general? Sure. But if your job states you can’t do this, then you can’t.

        • Doos says:

          Don’t Make assumptions do you have proof that silva uses roids, we all know chael does and he definitely needs it.
          Sonnen winning by TKO is a joke. Hes a decision guy and if your analytical skills are based on what sonnen did to silva theres no way he will tko silva. Sonnen will most likely tap again like he does to most brazilians.

          As you mentioned TRT is legal, but theres a lot of controversy surrounding as it is not natural. Silva will again by TKO or Sub..If chael wins its by decision and TRT

        • Wsheets says:

          Okay so by Wrestlingrules logic, GSP must take steroids as well because he waits so long in between fights?

    • Thom says:

      Mayhem makes way more than Chael, Chael barely gets 50k to show.

  2. m says:

    some people are blessed with the gift of gab.
    they’re sharp. witty. and good at talking $hit.

    not only can chael talk the talk he can outwrestle the entire MW division.

    if you take chael out of the octagon and put him on a basketball court, most likely he would talk a lot of shit even if it he didn’t have skills. he’ll always be a talker. even after he gets submitted. and according to his MMA record, that’s the best way to beat him….dude has zero submission defense.

    • Rodriguez says:

      Amen to that, man!

    • WrestlingRules says:

      @m , man I just WISH i could have said this as well as you just did. All I can say is HooRah!!! Won’t it be great when Chael becomes an announcer for the UFC???!!!

      And Rod, I know you are pretty much a douchebag, but for some reason, I just think your allright too. For some reason I know you are a prick, but then again some of the biggest pricks I know are my best friends!! go figure??? Anyways, stfu..

      • Advent says:

        Speaking of douchebags, you “two” have the same IP address. So you’re arguing with yourself. Same elementary school level writing style, similar grammatical errors… You’re a douche with an unconvincing sock.

  3. Mikey says:

    he was actually complimentary of Chael in that interview, misleading title is misleading!

  4. kevin says:

    this was a pretty misleading article title. sounded like mayhem had some props for chael here….

  5. Nick says:

    Another misleading title. He was saying how good Chael is for the sport. Didn’t say anything bad about him.

  6. DMAC says:

    I didn’t read the article. But just wanted to say Mayhem fucked up by letting Munoz head his camp, Munoz thinks he’s better then what he is IMO and Mayhem trusted him. He looked just as bad as his first fight with Bisping..

  7. rickjamesbitch says:

    roidz roidz roidz trt

  8. Moseswhite says:

    Is this website trying to become the National Enquirer of MMA? Or TMZ? Wtf? The title isn’t anywhere close to the content and as usual ad of late, the content seems somewhat drab and uninteresting. What’s happened to this site? BJ! Pay attention to the people running a site that has your name on it. It’s starting to become a disgrace.

  9. Jpeech says:

    although I think Chael will win I dont think he will finish the fight If he does it will be by arm triangle which is what he had in the first fight but couldnt finish it but i think he has gotten better with his sub off and def

    • WrestlingRules says:

      I think this is really the only way Silva can win and that is to sub him and if Sonnen hasn’t improved then he deserves to lose. Silva could get lucky and tag him like he did to Vitor too. But barring this, Sonnen wins easily by tko r4 or UD

      • Xaninho says:

        It’s not luck bro. Silva finishes fights, 18 of his 31 wins were by KO/TKO. 58% can’t be just luck.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          And Sonnen by far is the Best Fighter out of all those 31 fights…and he got lucky with a stupid Sonnen. (of course Sonnen probably wouldn’t have kept the belt since he didn’t have his trt thing straightened out) But that doesn’t matter this time

  10. Texas11outlaw says:

    Yall are retarded y’all have obviously never seen mayhem fight..mayhem is a beast,by the way the golden boy sonnen is on roids..I called that he was gonna test positive during the first silva fight

  11. Kjtrlt says:

    I agree with some fun in the antics, just as long as it doesnt go too far. They try and add the “grudge match” thing a little fast and loose, like between Mir and Dos Santos, over the whole Minitauro thing. That was a bit thin. But the trash talking can be fun.
