Appearing on yesterday's The MMA Hour, Jason 'Mayhem' Miller spoke on a myriad of topics, including how the UFC dragged out his knee surgery, and ended up not covering it, and the one fighter he wish he had met in the cage:

They went back and they dragged it out until my insurance coverage expired. So I couldn't get the surgery. ... Same one I hurt in the fight. If you're walking around with no ACL for one year, Kobe Bryant is a p***y.... I'm walking around like the hunchback of Notre Dame over there. That's the problem. I got so used to ignoring pain over the years from doing the job that I did, and that is a bit of genetics because my dad's done the same thing, then, try to work out? Nope.
On the one fight he never got and wish he had: The obvious answer is Nick Diaz, right? I was trying to get that fight a long time ago. And we were all going back and forth and angry at each other. I think I understand Nick Diaz very well. I think I can understand the some of the points he's trying to make. I know what he's saying, he's expressing frustration with his job and with the way the've handled the promotion of him and the way they carted him around to things he didn't want to do. I get it. I get what he's trying to say, how he doesn't feel respected despite how big his accomplishments are. He didn't feel respected, he didn't feel anyone was looking out for him.
