TUF 14 Finale: Jason "Mayhem" Miller's 5 Greatest Victories
Jason "Mayhem" Miller is one of MMA's most polarizing figures.
He can be seen as the host of the popular TV show Bully Beatdown, verbally sparring with Michael Bisping on TUF 14, and at one point, he even started a brawl at Strikeforce: Nashville, which basically sealed Strikeforce's fate on network television.
Love him or hate him, no one can deny that Miller is an outstanding middleweight, one who is a 38-fight veteran of the sport.
He holds wins over several notable opponents, and on Saturday, he's looking to add Michael "The Count" Bisping to his already outstanding resume.
These fights are Jason Miller's five greatest MMA victories.
5: Denis Kang
While not the most consistent fighter, Denis Kang is always a tough out for any fighter.
With a 34-14 record, he is clearly one of the better fighters in MMA, and even briefly had a stint in the UFC, exiting with a 1-2 record.
At their fight at Extreme Challenge 50, Jason Miller showed who the better fighter was, winning by rear-naked choke in the second round, showcasing a good ground game that has surely improved since their fight in 2003.
Coincidentally, Denis Kang's last fight in the UFC was against Mayhem's upcoming opponent on Saturday, Michael Bisping. Bisping defeated Kang by TKO in the second round at UFC 105.
4. Toby Imada
Coming in at No. 4 is BJJ phenom Toby Imada, the owner of a wicked submission game and a great fighting resume.
At the time of their fight in 2002, Jason Miller was still a wet-behind-the-ears youngling, sporting a 4-1 record and virtually no claim to fame.
Though the fight was over nine years ago and is virtually unknown to many casual fans, Miller showed his ability to grind out a win, winning by decision after two rounds of fighting.
3. Kazushi Sakuraba
Despite not being the beast that he once was, Kazushi Sakuraba is a legend in the MMA world. He has notable wins over several great fighters, including virtually the whole Gracie clan. That's a lot of Brazilians.
Jason Miller doesn't have as good a resume, but he handily defeated Sakuraba at DREAM 16, winning by arm-triangle in the second round in Miller's most recent fight, back in September 2010.
This was the second of a four-fight losing streak for Sakuraba; this was also Mayhem's last fight before beginning his coaching stint on TUF 14.
2. Robbie Lawler
Robbie Lawler is one of the top middleweights in the sport. He started his career with a terror run in the UFC and has been at or near the top of the MMA rankings for his whole career.
Jason Miller finished him by arm-triangle in a dominant performance in the second round during their fight for the Icon Sport middleweight title in '06.
1. Tim Kennedy
Coming in at No. 1 is Tim Kennedy—Army veteran and consensus No. 3 Strikeforce middleweight.
The two have fought twice, splitting the series at 1-1. Despite losing the first matchup, Mayhem won a unanimous decision, winning handily in '07.
