Kingdom MMA: Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller vs. Kala ‘Kolohe’ Hose


Kingdom MMA, the creation of former SuperBrawl and Icon Sport president T. Jay Thompson, has announced that Jason Miller (21-6) will come out of his self-imposed retirement to face fellow Icon middleweight Kala Hose (7-2) at the Blaisdell Center Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii according to the Honolulu Advertiser.

"Mayhem" became the Icon Sport middleweight world champion back in 2006 by defeating former EliteXC champ Robbie Lawler. In addition to going the distance against George St. Pierre on the UFC 52 card, Miller competed in the 2008 DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix in Japan where he lost his most recent fight to "Jacare" Souza in the quarterfinals.

He also holds notable wins over Denis Kang and Falaniko Vitale.

Miller has almost a cult-like following of fans that he often refers to as the "Mayhem Monkeys" who support his bizarre and often hilarious persona. Despite his tenure in the sport, he may have to leave the "Monkey Business" outside the cage when he faces the hard-hitting Hose - who's had all seven of his wins come via (T)KO.

"Kolohe" won the Icon 185-pound strap last March after a thrilling fifth round knockout of Phil "The New York Badass" Baroni. The title was vacant after Robbie Lawler was unable to defend it on two separate occasions because of injuries.

The possibilities seemed endless for Hose after being crowned the champion of the Hawaii-based mixed martial arts promotion, but he lost some of his momentum when he was defeated by Robert "Bubba" McDaniel on June 14 just 41 seconds into the first round of their non-title tilt.

Hose rebounded with a TKO over Rolondo Dominique at 'Hard Times' in August and now hopes to upend Miller for the biggest win of his career.

Kingdom MMA will hold its inaugural event on either March 28 or 29, depending on arena availability.
