Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller: ‘If I Lose to (C.B. Dollaway), I Quit’

Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller makes no excuses for his poor performance against Michael Bisping at the Ultimate Fighter 14 finale, but he’s certainly ratcheting up the pressure for his next fight against C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146.

Miller appeared on Spike TV’s MMA Uncensored Live on Thursday night where he addressed the fight, and it doesn’t sound like he’s giving Dollaway much of a chance when they square off in May.

“No, he doesn’t deserve to be in there with me, and I’ll prove it,” Miller said about Dollaway. “I’ll prove it in under a round cause we see I tend to get tired in the second round.”

Following the loss to Bisping in December, there was speculation that the UFC may not even keep the colorful and brash former host of MTV’s Bully Beatdown for another fight, but the powers that be opted to give him at least one more shot in the Octagon.

That shot comes against former Ultimate Fighter finalist C.B. Dollaway, who returns to action after having hip surgery to close out 2011.

It would seem that both fighters are in do or die situations with Dollaway coming back from two straight losses, while Miller needs to rebound from his abhorrent performance against Bisping last year.

“We’re both in a similar spot in our career I guess. We’re on the chopping block, and that’s fine, I’m really happy with that,” Miller stated.

Miller’s feelings about facing a fighter the caliber of Dollaway appear pretty clear, but if he should lose to the former Arizona State wrestler, he’s ready to call for the end of his own UFC career.

“I feel like it, I’m on my own chopping block. If I lose to him, I’m quitting. I quit. I don’t deserve to be in there,” said Miller.

His opinion is strong and his belief in his ability to beat Dollaway seems even stronger, but Miller knows beyond any boastful statement that any middleweight that’s in the UFC is going to be no easy test.

“There’s not a easy fight, there’s no easy fights whatsoever,” Miller stated.

With such a strong statement, Miller will now get the chance to back those words up when he faces Dollaway in May at UFC 146. The fight between the two middleweights will likely air on the UFC 146 prelims on FX.

Jason Parillo says he's not the one to blame for "The Prodigy's" revamped stance and fight strategy against Frankie Edgar. After B.J.

The upright and rigid striking stance was terribly new for the 35-year-old mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran. Many questioned the strategy b more

B.J. Penn ended up debuting more than a new trimmer frame for his retirement fight against Frankie Edgar at Sunday's night The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale. The 35-year-old legend also attempted to showcase a new, somewhat bizarre stand-up style to largely unsuccessful results, as Penn's upright stance failed to provide him any offensive benefits and left him wide open for all three of Edgar's takedown attempts. In the time since Penn's loss, the lion's share of the criticism in regards to his dis more

Nobody ever wants to lose, but sometimes it's good to make the most of a bad situation. A few fighters who tasted defeat at UFC 175 should still be somewhat encouraged with how well they fought. Not all losses are created equally. It's one thing to get completely dominated in every round. It's something different to go down fighting until the end and make a strong case that you were the deserving winner. Even a knockout/submission result can be deceiving because all it takes is one split-second more
