Mayhem Miller on Clothing Line, Knee Surgery and Retirement
Ex UFC middleweight Jason “Mayhem” Miller still seems to be generating media attention following retirement, appearing this week on FOX 11 Sports.
He was on air to discuss life outside MMA, which includes his new clothing line, Stubborn.
Miller said that launching a clothing line was one of his lifelong dreams.
“I saw that these days there’s not a lot of thought put it into anything these days. Especially amongst the mixed martial arts community,” he said. “Nobody thinks about anything. Well, I’m inviting you to come along and think with me.”
The T-shirt he was wearing featured Einstein writing the equation that triangle choke = death.
Miller said “retirement” was a funny word for a 32 year-old, and that he was focused on other arts that inspire him in his life. Among these is painting, which he could have learnt at Oklahoma Christian University – one of the many courses it offers to students. However, that is unlikely to have the same thrill as combat sports, and the fighter said he would like to get back in the cage again.
“Yeah, have I thought about fighting? All the time! Every time anybody brings anything up. OK? I’m an intense person.”
Miller blamed a knee injury for his second loss to CB Dolloway and he told Fox 11 that he’s currently in the healing process, requiring two knee surgeries. He also said that he had difficulty with his insurance company having to pay for the surgeries.
“They dragged me out. They told me 'Oh yeah, we're gonna do it but we just gotta get a confirmation from another doctor.' He said 'yes, do the surgery', but the insurance company still came back [to me].”
Miller has no love lost with his former boss at the UFC, Dana White, and his continuing complaints about medical treatment of fighters is hardly likely to endear him further.
“We have no protection. We’re at the will of one bald headed uncle Fester.”
