Jason “Mayhem” Miller was scheduled to come out of retirement to fight for the Venator middleweight title against the champion Luke Barnatt.
That all came to a screeching halt when Miller stepped on the scale for weigh-ins and weighed in at 209 pounds, which puts him in the heavyweight division.
After the weigh-in, Venator worked with Miller and Mattia Schivalion to agree to a 205-pound light heavyweight bout. Miller made 205 pounds but will have to weigh in under 207 pounds tomorrow before the fight.
"Mayhem" Miller weighed in again at 205 pounds, I'm told, so now he'll fight Mattia Schivalion tomorrow at Venator. pic.twitter.com/p1SiI88UML

@mayhemmiller just did the weight at 205. Last check tomorrow morning at 8.00AM to be under 207. The fight vs Schiavolin is on.

Will Miller make the weight tomorrow? Share your thoughts on “Mayhem” and weighing in 24 pounds over the limit, and his new bout against Schivalion.
