UFC NEWS – Dana White On Mayhem’s Striking: You could see better form in girls' Tae Bo classes
“I still don’t know [about Miller’s future in the UFC]. It was bad. To be honest, believe me, my Twitter has been blowing up with all the Mayhem fans blasting me, but facts are facts. It was the worst standup I’ve ever seen in my life. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen worse standup. The guy’s been in the business for over 10 years. It looked like it was his first fight ever. It was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen. Some of the punches that were thrown by Mayhem Miller in this fight, you could go to a girls’ Tae Bo class and see better form, better stand-up. It was embarrassing,”
Ouch, that has to hurt.
UFC President Dana White recently commented to the guys over at mmafighting.com about last weekend’s main event loser, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, and discussed where he assesses Jason’s skills as a fighter.
Shortly after the loss White was quoted in saying that he was unsure of the middleweight’s future, calling his loss the most one-sided beating in UFC history.
Going against the grain, White is in a small majority of people who did not award “Mayhem” the first round of action despite controlling the pace and obtaining dominant position on the ground for a portion of the first frame of action.
My guess here, perhaps, is that there might be something personal going on behind the scenes between Mayhem and White that the public is unaware of, because to talk so down about a fighter and to threaten termination of such a well-known name after one fight is uncharacteristic, even for the brash and sometimes controversial Dana White.
But who really knows…
