Jason “Mayhem Miller caused quite a stir on Friday when he stepped on the scale ahead of his scheduled Venator middleweight championship bout.
“Mayhem” looked confused as he weighed in at 209 pounds for his 185-pound title fight with champion Lucas Barnatt. Miller took off his shorts after initially weighing in thinking that perhaps the shorts could shed some extra pounds. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
Venator scrapped the middleweight title bout between Miller and Barnatt and the champion was matched with Stefan Croitoru, another middleweight that was also set to fight on the card.
Miller was given the opportunity to fight Mattia Schivalion at light heavyweight and “Mayhem” made the 205-pound limit on Friday, but also had to weigh in under 207 on Saturday, which according to Ariel Helwani has happened.
"Mayhem" Miller weighed 206.9 lbs at 7 am local Italian time, which means his fight against Mattia Schiavolin is official for later today.
