That’s how “Mayhem” Miller describes himself. Or just Jason, if you’re his mom.
Miller’s getting some ink for his MySpace efforts over at foxsports.com:
The 26-year old has made as much a name for himself on MySpace.com as he has with his considerable submission skills.
“Seriously man, if I wasn’t talking to you right now I’d probably be on my MySpace page,” says Miller, who lives in Hollywood. “I’m a geek with too much energy.”
Scott featured The Mayhem Show, Episode 2 in yesterday’s Coffee and Kick Ass.
Miller’s going to try and put some nerdslap on Hiromitsu Miura tomorrow night in Vegas.
“I’m going to pummel this guy. I’m going to turn up the heat and go mayhem on this guy as soon as they say go. I’m ready to go 100 miles an hour.”
But he won’t do that until after an elaborate entrance that he said might include Chinese dancers and fire eating girls “depending upon the local fire ordinances.” He plans to come to the cage wearing a mask, as he frequently does.
“The only thing better than getting all the chicks is scaring all the chicks away,” he said. “I’m the ugliest man in MMA, but it doesn’t pay to be beautiful in this sport. In this case, ugly is good, so I’m happy.”

UFC, Pride and WFA veteran and current Pride commentator Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg will make his return to MMA December 1st at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii after a short lived retirement.
Frank Trigg has had an illustrious career in which fans saw him earn the welterweight title in the WFA and number one contender status in the UFC. Trigg has participated in mixed martial arts competition all over the world and he is also a decorated wrestler. Trigg’s resume is host to some impressive names such as Matt Hughes x2, Georges St. Pierre, Dennis Hallman x2, Renato Verissimo, among others. Trigg’s brash personality makes him a hit among MMA fans.
Trigg kicked off his MMA career back in 1997 when he fought in the Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation 7. Trigg was forced to fight three fights in one night but showing true fighting spirit, Trigg finished every one of his opponents in the first round.
Trigg’s first big break came in November of 1999 when Pride Fighting Championships decided to sign him. Trigg was given the chance to fight Fabiano Iha at PRIDE 8 and he made easy work of the Huntington Beach native TKO’ing him late in the first round.
Trigg had a few more fights before the newly formed World Fighting Alliance contacted him in regards to fighting for their welterweight title. Trigg spent a year with the organization where he fought three times holding the welterweight title during that stint.
Trigg’s strong performance ended up being enough as he finally received the call from the UFC to fight Matt Hughes for the welterweight championship. Trigg ended up getting two shots at Hughes for the title but unfortunately for him he came up short both times and that ended up being the beginning of the end for Mr. Trigg in the UFC.
Things went bad for Trigg after the UFC took action and released him from their roster. After losing two straight fights to the best fighters the UFC had to offer Trigg was visibly shook and he was forced to sit back and re-evaluate his stance on fighting.
About five months are being released from the UFC, Trigg signed to participate in the Rumble on the Rock welterweight tournament.
Trigg was able to put his career back on track during his quarter-final match as he disposed of the very tough Ronald Jhun winning via a judge’s decision. With the win Trigg earned the right to return to Hawaii three months later for the semi-finals of the tournament.
Trigg’s opponent was the young but very tough Carlos Condit. Trigg was forced to tap out early in the first round of his semi-final battle as the younger mixed martial artist locked on a triangle choke that put an end to the fight, Trigg’s tournament hopes, and his career for the time being.
After nearly seven month’s off, Trigg is ready for a fresh start. That fresh start will come December 1st as Trigg will be making the jump up to 185 lbs to fight Jason “Mayhem” Miller for the ICON Sport world middleweight title.
Frank Trigg is back! Icon Sport has announced that they have signed UFC veteran Frank Trigg.
Trigg’s first fight will be against Jason “Mayhem” Miller December 1st for the Icon Sport Middleweight Championship. Trigg will be moving up from welterweight (170 lbs) to middleweight (185 lbs) to fight Miller.
“Trigg has all the tools to become the next Icon Sport Middleweight Champion. He excels at doing damage from the top position. And we saw what happened when Lawler got on top of Mayhem in that now-infamous second round of their bout…Lawler nearly finished the fight right there. Mayhem will be in real trouble if he finds himself under someone who has the wrestling and ground-and-pound skills of Trigg. Trigg vs. Mayhem will be an absolute war.”
The December 1st card will also feature UFC veterans Robbie Lawler and Falaniko Vitale fighting in their respective weight classes.
Icon Sport has announced the full card for their September 2nd event titled “Mayhem vs. Lawler”.
