Quote UFC president Dana White is done with Jason "Mayhem" Miller. After losing to C.B. Dollaway in a bout that was booed for being less than thrilling and an unknown backstage incident, White said Miller is no longer with the UFC.
 
White wouldn't say what the incident was except to say it was nothing physical.
 
"Mayhem's done. He's gone," White said, adding that the incident was "just some bulls--t that I don't want to talk about. We're on a crazy string here of dumb bulls--t."
 
Miller fought in the UFC early in his career but then moved to Japanese promotions and to Strikeforce. He returned to the UFC with a coaching stint on "The Ultimate Fighter" that was followed by a bad loss to Michael Bisping.
 
White also was not happy with Miller's playful entrances for the weigh-in and his fight. Miller brought a pink boa and boom box to the weigh-in, and he wore a paper bag out to the Octagon on Saturday.
 
"When you get embarrassed the way he did against Michael Bisping, then you show up in that pink whatever that thing was, I'm not into that stuff," said White. "It's not my thing. I guess I don't really care if guys do it because you see it at weigh-ins all the time. Just take this thing serious. If you want to be a clown do that stuff on your reality show."

 
For me, this just reinforces my belief that Dana White doesn't want fighters that have any personality.  White only wants guys to come to the weigh-in acting all mean and badass.  And White certainly doesn't want guys' entrance to be more than walking out to the octagon to heavy metal or hip-hip.

Its simple Dana White doesn't like Mayhem Miller. Dana was considering axeing him after his lost to Bisping. There is plenty of guys that act like dicks at the weigh ins. James Irvine ate a packet of potato chips while on the scales, some where a freaking thong, Anderson Silva wore a goofy shitty mask. 

Terrible move by Dana Mayhem is extremely popular he's like Garcia, he may lose but everyone wants to see him.
All Hail Mitchell Johnson and David Warner.

A pity that Mayhem didn't manage to perform in the UFC. I expected more of him to be honest. I kinda liked his antics and all, but if you can't perform that might not be the thing you want to do..

I'm also curious to what the Backstage altercation was. Too bad no one seems to know what that exactly was.

He's P4P one of the worst fighters ever.

Seeming as he sucks at fighting but good at talking, give him an analyst role on Fox or some shit, just keep him out the cage.

You see I say he was solid a couple guy years ago in Strikeforce during the whole Nick Diaz thing. In the UFC however these days everyone especially in the lighter divisions are so good on the ground its just so hard to get submissions on the top guys besides maybe a rear naked choke after a shit load of ground and pound.

I don't know if Mayhem is past his prime, or it's just UFC's lighter ranks are just stacked.  Maybe it's a combination of both.
 
The lighter ranks got a huge boost with the merge of WEC.  Then there's the addition of Strikeforce talent.  Now UFC had lighter classes filled with talent.
 
Mayhem is now 31, but he's been fighting for 12 years or so.  He's been putting on the wear and tear for a while.  Maybe his body has just had enough.

May 28, 2012 - Jason "Mayhem" Miller said he would retire from mixed martial arts if he lost to C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146. He plans to live up to his word.
 
In his first interview since losing a unanimous decision to Dollaway on Saturday night, the controversial middleweight told MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani on Monday that as of now, he's finished fighting.
 
"I said I would, so I am," said Miller. "I'm done for right now."
 
I like how he included the "right now" at the end.
