While most pundits professed the obvious answer was written all over the ‘Strikeforce: Nashville’ brawl wall, White confirmed last year’s rumble did in fact lead to Miller’s exile from the San Jose, California based company.

“Mayhem Miller had a contract with those guys,” White told a group of reporters following today’s UFC 129 press conference. “Mayhem, he’s banished from CBS for life. He wasn’t being fought because he couldn’t fight on Showtime, he couldn’t fight on CBS, so he was in a bad position.

“So that’s why [we signed him to the UFC].

Why not ban the thugs who jumped him?

I mean, he was being a dick, but like 5 people were hitting him.

For the record, 'all he did' was interrupt a live broadcast without any sort of permission and put pressure on a champion who had just busted his ass defending his belt to defend it against him for no real reason whatsoever other than Mayhem wanted a big fight and decided he was going to go take one by force.

Alas, I'm guessing networks don't like people dictating their broadcasts on their own terms. Especially when you go and pull an antic like that in a cage full of testosterone-fueled alpha-males and act shocked and surprised that such a reaction MIGHT just happen.

 He got banned because a bunch of dudes (Diaz, Diaz, Melendez) and some nerd (Shields) jumped him on tv?  That's different.

I dont get why he was the only one banned if they decided to ban, but it worked out for the best. He will fight more and become more popular in the UFC, providing he smashes some faces.

When Flair wins and the rest of the Horsemen enter the ring it's their ring.

If Magnum TA enters their ring after a title match then all bets are off mate -

If a drunk jumps into a tiger pit at the zoo and gets mauled are you going to blame the human or the killing machine?

So if Mayhem was banned from fighting in Strikeforce then what was the point of the whole Diaz vs. Mayhem/catchweight vs. 185lbs debate. Lame.

 hypocrisy, imo.

showtime wouldn't ban a fighter if they punched during the press conference (all too common in boxing).

but doing basically the same thing after a fight is an offense worth banning?

hypocrites.

Look at the the situation from CBS/Showtime perspective. Non-elite pseudo-celebrity from MTV (the competition) jumps into the cage without permission and causes a post-fight confrontation with four clearly more talented (but smaller) fighters on one of the first MMA shows in network television history.


IMO Miller > Barnett in terms of detriment to MMA.
