The always colorful and outspoken former host of MTV’s Bully Beatdown has been released from the UFC following a loss to C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146.
UFC President Dana White confirmed the news on Saturday night when speaking to reporters after the post fight press conference.
Miller’s time in the UFC could only be described as an experiment gone wrong.
The one time Strikeforce fighter was brought over to the UFC after essentially being banned from television following an incident in which Miller was involved in a post fight melee following Jake Shields win over Dan Henderson in 2010.
Miller was basically banished from television after the occurrence, but found new life when the UFC signed him to a new deal and decided to put him on the Ultimate Fighter as a coach opposite Michael Bisping.
While the show was a success for Miller, the fight with Bisping after the season ended was anything but a rousing affair. Bisping soundly beat Miller and finished the former MTV host with strikes, and following the fight UFC President Dana White contemplated releasing him after is cardio failed him early on and his performance could only be described as abhorrent.
White decided to give Miller one more chance, and in the early going of his fight against former Ultimate Fighter runner-up C.B. Dollaway it looked like he might find success.
Unfortunately, Dollaway wasn’t going to go away that fast and he ended up winning a unanimous decision over Miller.
Then according to White there was an ‘incident’ backstage involving Miller, and while he wouldn’t elaborate it didn’t help his cause at all because he was then cut from the roster of the UFC.
White stated that the backstage incident didn’t play into his decision to cut Miller because he has already made up his mind to release the middleweight competitor, but it certainly didn’t help his cause.
Miller has now competed in the UFC a total of three times and ended his career there with an 0-3 record overall.
