White won't fire Hall over Mayhem fracas

 

Jason "Mayhem" Miller is in trouble. One a tremendous talent in MMA, he may in the end be known more for unfortunate out of cage behavior. Miller has been arrested multiple times for domestic violence, was arrested naked in a church after defacing it, instigated the infamous Strikeforce Brawl that  sent the promotion into a descent it never recovered from, and in the latest incident, taunted UFC fighter and TUF runner up Uriah Hall with a racial epithet, and was swatted for his trouble.

The scuffle took place in front of California's Commerce Casino, following BAMMA USA: Bad Beat, and can be seen in part in the video at bottom.

"Mayhem started leaning in, kind of like flinching with his head, and kept repeating "You're a Bitch Ass Nigga!" at least 6 times, each time with added taunting," said the Clinch Report. "When he leaned in for a 7th, Hall hit him with a right hand! Didnt catch him flush, but left a noticeable welt."

Miller's conduct easily crossed California's legal threshhold for fighting words - there should be no repercussions against Hall for taking a poke at someone who called him a "Nigga" seven times. However, many fans though Hall might face sanction from the UFC.

In the only good news to come out of this, UFC president Dana White addressed the incident, via Twitter.

dylan warden @dylanwardenn
@danawhite will Uriah Hall get cut for what happened with mayhem ? Please say no and he will be able to fight dec.28 ??

Dana White @danawhite
f--- no!!! I'm gonna give him a bonus!!!

Hall fights Chris Leben at UFC 168 in December, with his contract on the line.

Jason Miller was long a valued and lively if eccentric presence in the sport. In recent years he has slipped into a darker state, and plainly has medical issues that need to be addressed professionally.
