In the aftermath of Uriah Hall and Jason Miller’s confrontation,
the question arose, would Hall get punished by the UFC for turning
the confrontation physical and throwing a punch at Miller?
UFC President Dana White chimed in on the topic and made it
clear that the answer is a resounding NO.

Video from the Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller and Uriah Hall
confrontation has been released by MMAInterviews
Spencer Lazara, who added backstory to the altercation that
describes Miller’s inflammatory and provocative actions towards
The scene begins with Jason “Mayhem” Miller being
aggressive to a woman who is apparently his ex girlfriend who he
has allegedly assaulted in the recent past. This was told to me by
a source close to Miller who added that he is currently out on bail
in fact for allegedly assaulting her. She was visibly emotional and
upset and he continued to yell at her as her friend shielded her
from Miller. Uriah Hall poked his head in the situation and
instantly Miller turned his aggression to him. He began with
continuous rants of, “N**** please.” You can then hear
Uriah saying to those holding him, “I’m good, I’m
good,” to which Miller replies, “Oh I know you’re
good.” Mayhem is constantly looking to get Hall upset, and
accomplishes his goal.

This is another unfortunate incident for Miller, whose drastic
turn from affable fan-favorite to troubled outcast has left him alienated from
the MMA community that once embraced him.
Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller may be retired from MMA but that doesn’t
stop him from finding new and inventive ways to land his name in
the headlines. The latest instance involved a reported scuffle with
Fighter 17 finalist Uriah Hall at a regional MMA fight card in
California on Friday night.
The event called BAMMA USA/Bad Beat 11 featured several fighters
from the local California area and both Miller and Hall were in
attendance watching the card unfold.
According to MMA
reporter Erik Fontanez, who was attending the event and spoke
to FOX Sports just after the altercation unfolded, a large group of
people began gathering just before the co-main event of the
The group was surrounding Miller, who was getting heated with
another person and that person just happened to be Hall, who was
standing just a few feet away from the former Ultimate Fighter
Out of nowhere, Miller apparently flipped off Hall, taunting him
and shouted a racial slur at Hall along the way. Hall reacted and
threw a punch at Miller before security intervened and broke up the
The two fighters were escorted from the building, although Hall
was allowed to re-enter after Miller left the area.

There was no word on what caused Miller and Hall to end up in a
heated argument, although the two fighters did both train at the
Reign Training Center under the tutelage of UFC Fight Night main
event competitor Mark Munoz.
Miller recently left the gym and had some very unkind words for
Munoz upon his exit, and Hall still trains there for his fights.
It’s unknown if that component played a part in the scuffle or if
it was an entirely different scenario all together.
Miller has already been in legal troubles lately with pending
charges still looming overhead for several
domestic violence arrests that took place over the summer. The
police did not get involved during the scuffle with Miller and
Hall, however, as security just broke up the melee and sent the
fighters packing from the event.
