UFC boss: Uriah Hall deserves bonus for punching 'Mayhem' Miller


By now you’ve probably heard about a weekend scuffle between UFC fighter Uriah Hall and former UFC middleweight Jason Miller. Just don’t expect Hall to receive any type of UFC-mandated punishment.

In fact, Hall, a runner-up on “The Ultimate Fighter 17,” is deserving of a bonus, according to UFC President Dana White.

The situation occurred this past Saturday at “BAMMA USA: Bad Beat 11? in Commerce, Calif. In the video above, “Mayhem,” who’s dealt with legal issues since his May 2012 UFC release, can be heard repeatedly calling Hall a “bitch n—-” in a video posted to YouTube. Hall eventually throws a punch, and the fighters were quickly separated.

Miller later continued the name-calling on Twitter, where he also said he planned to return to fighting (and said he isn’t a racist).

So what did White think?

Hall (7-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) returns to action on Dec. 28, when he meets Chris Leben (22-10 MMA, 12-9 UFC) at UFC 168 in Las Vegas. After losses in his first two official UFC bouts, the striker finds himself in a must-win situation.
