Mayhem: I’ll quit UFC if Dollaway beats me
On Dec. 3, 2011 at TUF 14 Finale, Michael Bisping beat up Jason Miller so thoroughly that UFC President Dana White speculated about releasing Mayhem. On May 26, 2012 at UFC 146, Miller fights C.B. Dollaway, and in an interview on Spike TV’s “MMA Uncensored Live” Mayhem says Dana doesn’t have to worry about any firing, if he loses, he quits.
“I’m on my own chopping block. If I lose to him, I’m quitting! I don’t even deserve to be in there! There’s not an easy fight. In the UFC, there’s no easy fight. He doesn’t deserve to be in there with me, and I’ll prove it. I’ll prove it in under a round, because, we see…I tend to get tired in the second round (laughs). We’re both in a similar spot in our career I guess. We’re both on the chopping block. That’s fine. I’m really happy with that.”
“I don’t get my ass kicked by sucky guys. I beat the Hell out of ’em. I just came up short that night. I’m not gonna make excuses for it. There’s no point to doin’ it. You know what I mean?”
“You know what? I have a new rule. I don’t make excuses for fights until eight months after. So, I still have like five more months. I’ll come back on here in five months and tell you guys what happened. There’s no way to explain a fight you lost without going, ‘Well, it was ‘cuz of this,’ or ‘It was ‘cuz of that.’ There’s no way. And I’m not that kinda guy. That’s not what I do.”
“(Fighting is) something that I’ve had a close, intimate relationship with since I was 16 years old. So, there’s something there that … it’s my wife. you know what I mean? I don’t have a wife. That’s my wife, and, ya know, someday she’ll give me some kids.”
