'Mayhem' says Dana White killed MMA
Jason "Mayhem" Miller, whose feats outside of The Octagon now outnumber what he's done inside, is back in full-blown troll mode.
The ex-UFC, Strikeforce, WEC and Dream middleweight fighter took to the popular MMA Underground forums after the FOX UFC Saturday: Johnson vs Moraga event to unleash his latest diatribe upon UFC President Dana White.
Mayhem's open letter to DW ignited a thread now 18-pages long (epic for even theUG's standards), and asserted that the UFC President "killed the sport" and bored FOX executives with last night's card.
So far, Mayhem has not followed up his UG post. Here is the full message:
Dana White has killed the sport that you and i love. The refusal to build stars. The reward for standing and wanging. THE UNIFIED RULES, have all killed the sport of mixed martial arts. I come to you humbly, as a student and teacher of the mixed martial arts. A man that has never tapped out, or been knocked out in mixed martial arts competition and ask that you do not support a corporate monarchy that favors a mark in the Win column, over showcasing the ART of MMA.
Obviously, it behooves those with an interest in gambling on Ultimate Fighting to know who will most likely win and most likely lose a UFC match, so the current structure will remain until YOU, the Fan demand that these forces stop controlling Mixed Martial Arts.
I am Mayhem Miller, so i am well aware of what it is like to live on the opposite end of the coorporate power structure, with a lifetime record of 52-8-1 and a UFC record of 0-3. The men in UFC were never stronger than men i fought around the World, just the circumstances in which i fought them were more Extreme.
As a fan. I urge you...
When the next Big Thing hits, jump aboard-because with PPV sales slipping since 2009, and the executives at Fox watching these boring fights, if you are still a Dana shill, you are polishing the brass on the Cubicle Captain's Titanic. Don't let him kill our sport. I love it too much.

Despite nearly 30,000 views on the thread, Dana White doesn't appear to be one of them. As of this posting, he has yet to reply (yes, he has an account), which may have gotten under Mayhem's skin: he followed up via Twitter with two additional jabs.
BOOOORING. STOP BEING A TERRIBLE PROMOTER AND THIS WON'T HAPPEN, YOU CUBICLE GUY. @DANAWHITE— Mayhem Miller (@mayhemmiller) July 28, 2013
Hey @danawhite keep ducking my comments. You replied 13 mins ago. Duck more.— Mayhem Miller (@mayhemmiller) July 28, 2013
So, did things just get even realer? Actually, is Mayhem even aware of reality? Whatever the case, the man knows how to make good Internet.
