Dana White fires Jason “Mayhem” Miller

 

NO HOMO

Yahoo! News reports that Mayhem was cut because of what sounds like homophobia:

“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.”

A little birdy made a good point about this:

“By ‘not your thing’ do you mean ‘I dont take cock up the ass’ not my thing or ‘I hate the color pink because queers use it’ not my thing?”

Fire a guy because he sucks or his junk popped out of his Speedo or he beats the shit out of his wife. Don’t fire a guy for dressing up in a goofy costume to entertain people when you let so many other fighters do the same. I’m pretty sure Dana didn’t actually fire him because he hates the gays but it is a little suspect.

    please dont sue me mr dana

  • Remico

    It’s like Rogan’s comedy at this point, they both keep repeating they don’t have a problem with gays/women but any time they get mad it’s YOU FAGGOT CUNTS.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    If Dana hasn’t fired Lawlor or Dollaway for theatrics and bromosexuality I doubt the boa fed into this as much as the terribly lazy losses and backstage kerfluffle.

  • Reverend Clint

    he probably should have kept his mouth shut then

  • Butthorn

    Well I’m glad that mayhem is fired, but I’m not sure what it has to do with homo’s?

    So he didn’t get in a fight backstage?

    he probably should have kept his mouth shut then

    Didn’t he say that part on friday at said weigh-ins?  I don’t remember that during the press conference.

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    Dana let a former gay porn star fight on his television series, and although the above comments are suspect – I highly doubt that DW’s homophobia had anything to do with Miller getting cut.

    I’d love to know more about what happened backstage, but the bottom line is he’s had two shit fights back to back.

  • Reverend Clint

    yeah its just another stupid thing dana said that muddies up the waters. I was trying to make the point that dana shoot himself in the foot over and over again when it comes to what he says vs what he does

  • ThrowinBombsAllDay

    Oh, FFS, stop insinuating this is more than it is. Mayhem got cut because he SUCKED and LOST and simply put on shitty performances. Dana’s happy to let you goof off if you go out there and PERORM and WIN. But if you’re acting like a clown, instead of concentrating on being a fighter, GTFO and it has ZERO to do with whether someone is or is “acting” gay. Playing the “Gay Card” (and especially with that “little birdie” ploy) just lost you tons of credibility points.

  • ThrowinBombsAllDay

    PERFORM. Sorry about that.

  • ButtHorn

    “I was trying to make the point that dana shoot himself in the foot over
    and over again when it comes to what he says vs what he does.”

    Well thats gonna be an ongoing collumn.

    You could do it on Friday’s just to catch up with everything he said during the week and call it Dana vs. Dana’s comment commode.

  • Reverend Clint

    throwin if that was the case then dana shouldnt have brought up that he was dressing goofy. Yes i do not believe dana fired him for being or lookng gay but he comment made it sound like that.^ i like that butthorn

  • Letibleu

    Dana has made many men loving men sad cry

    Homophobia?! Are you kidding me? Miller got fired because, one, he lost two fights in a row embarrassingly and to a lower tier guy like CB. Two because Dana White wants to put on a professional organization. Keeping a fighter around that puts on a stupid act and then loses fights embarrassingly as he did tarnishes the reputation of the SPORT as a whole. That is why Miller got fired. You guys are over sensitive jackles and you should get a life.

  • Letibleu

    White made it sound like Miller was fired over the “shenanigans”. We know he wasnt but thats how it sounded.

    What’s a jackle?

  • I am the Liquor

    I know this is a huge hangout for queens but give me a break. He got cut because he sucks ass, and no not literally, and even if it was, who the fuck cares? This place used to be the best, full of queers but who cares? Im straight and have no issues with what anyone’s sexual orientation/lifestyle happens to be.

    Get over it. He got cut because he either didnt put the work into preparing for his fights or he just isnt good enough anymore. Either are good reasons to send him packing.

  • Reverend Clint

    the only thing queer around here is frick

  • Night Rider

    Clint that’s not fair…. Ryan is queer and diseased, due to lack of Podcast production. 
    Make a podcast.. Fuck You…

  • Filmdrunk

    Agreed!  Fine to fire Mayhem after those two dogshit performances, but don’t blame it on the entrances, I wish every fighter was half the character Mayhem is. It’s just too bad his intelligence outside the ring doesn’t seem to translate to fight iq. 

  • Giallo

    No homo? It should say very much homo

  • Voice of Reason

    So what DID happen backstage?

  • Blackula Jonez

    I really would like to know what happened backstage.
    I think Mayhem getting cut may have more to how much he is getting paid vs what he brings to the UFC which can’t be much other than people tuning in an getting bored and turning the channel.
    The only exciting part of the Bisping fight was when Mayhem was getting trounced, Millers only significant offense was ironically him holding Bisping down before he gassed.
    Look at this from Dana’s view (minus the assumed homophobia) Mayhem hasn’t won a fight in the UFC. Not only that he doesn’t even put up good performances. What is Mayhems UFC highlight reel moment.
    His entrances? Dana has ALWAYS hated guys who do that shit. Dana is just getting rid of a (possibly) expensive fighter who doesn’t bring that much to the promotion.
    Or he hates gays, that is a much easier way to go about things than thinking logically.

  • Reverend Clint

    finally the intelligent jackals show up in this thread

  • frickshun

    Clint–>not that I consider you smart, insightful or funny but this is some sensationalistic nonsense. Dana is no more homophobic than any of you fucking queers. If you’re basing it on the language he uses, then all of you are equally guilty. Fucking idiots. Take it from a Mayhem fan, if his knee was healthy, he’d probably be a decent mid-tier fighter, but it’s not. So he doesn’t belong in the UFC. And making your self a spectacle when you suck will not help your career in any org.

  • Reverend Clint

    frick is just a big ol sour puss
