UFC NEWS – "Mayhem" Miller Admits To Being A Nervous Wreck Heading Into Bisping Fight
“I went out there and took my ass-whipping like a man. I wore it like an Armani suit. I thought, I might have nothing left, but I’m going to go out here and try. I’m going to swing for the fences. And I did, but I came up short. That’s the harsh reality of ultimate fighting… It felt weird walking out there. I didn’t feel like my normal self, and it really showed. I couldn’t get relaxed, couldn’t perform to my potential. And I’m not taking anything from Bisping, but it was definitely not my best performance. I didn’t think that that layoff would do anything to me. But man, it was apparent that it did. I kind of freaked out in there. I’ve got to admit it. I usually sit down on the [stool] and get a burst of energy back. But man, I sat down and I was sucking wind. I didn’t feel like myself. I was like, man, what’s going on with me here? I just couldn’t get back refocused. In the training room, I did it just fine. But inside the Octagon, I didn’t come back like I do. I was going, where am I? Usually, by the end of the 60 seconds I’m recharged. I wasn’t recharged at all. I was more tired than when I sat down.”
“Mayhem” Miller speaks for the first time to the media following his recent loss to Michael Bisping earlier this month.
If you watch the international MMA circuit you have no doubt seen Miller’s performances throughout the years and should be able to identify that he has put on much better performances than he did during his re-introduction to the UFC audience.
However, now an uphill battle, UFC president was so underwhelmed with his performance that he may not get a chance to prove that he is capable of more under the UFC banner.
What do you think Penn Nation, does Jason deserve another shot?
