One of mixed martial arts’ most colorful characters, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, is talking about a return to fighting. Miller retired from MMA in 2012 but made a brief comeback last May at Venator FC 3 from Milan, Italy, where he suffered a 2nd-round submission loss after missing weight by 24 pounds.
Since his retirement in 2012, Miller has run into numerous legal problems. One of his many outstanding issues, however, has just been put behind him.
He was arrested on charges of felony domestic violence in 2013 and this past week was found not guilty on two counts of felony domestic violence and one misdemeanor count of violating a restraining order.
While he has put this one case behind him, he is by no means in the clear. He is still facing other felony charges from a 2016 incident where he allegedly spat on a police officer; in addition to the 2014 incident in which he barricaded himself in his house and engaged in a four-hour standoff with police, which he live tweeted.
During his mixed martial arts career, Miller (28-10, 1NC) has wins over Robbie Lawler, Tim Kennedy, and Kazushi Sakuraba. So now that he has at least one legal hurdle behind him, might a return to the cage be in the cards?
TMZ Sports caught up with Mayhem and asked that very question:
“There’s a few different things [in the works], but I don’t want to talk about it too much until contracts are signed because I think that’s bad business.”
We will keep our ear to the streets as it relates to who is looking to sign Miller. But in the meantime, check out the full interview below where he also discusses his chances of appearing in porn.
