Jason "Mayhem" Miller simply looked stagnant Saturday night against Michael Bisping at TUF 14 Finale.
The 30-year-old, who was gracing the Octagon for the first time since losing to Georges St. Pierre in 2005, looked out-of-shape, undisciplined on his feet and simply unprepared.
This fight was meant to be Miller's official return to the UFC after dismantling Kazushi Sakuraba last year via first-round submission.
Instead, it was Bisping who looked the part of a contending middleweight.
To this point in his UFC career, Mayhem hasn't done nearly enough to just hang around atop the division.
He needs to get better, train harder and rack-off deciding victories over established fighters, like Bisping.
Here are five ways the TUF 14 coach can improve his in-cage skills and bounce-back from a welcome back loss.
