“Mayhem” Miller: “If I lose to (C.B. Dollaway), I’m quitting!”

The sting of a loss to Michael Bisping seemed to light a fire under Jason “Mayhem” Miller. The former coach on The Ultimate Fighter has been traveling the globe to improve his overall skills and cardio since the loss late in 2011 to “The Count.” Now, with a match against C.B. Dollaway signed for UFC 146 on May 26, Miller knows he is in a win-or-go-home situation.

His current run is Miller’s second stint with the UFC. His first was a one-and-done appearance, as the host of MTV’s Bully Beatdown was defeated by Georges St. Pierre and sent packing. With so much riding on this fight, Miller has put as much pressure on himself as any fan or Zuffa executive, a point he made clear on MMA Uncensored Live this past week.

“I’m on my own chopping block,” explained Miller when asked if he felt his job was at stake in the bout. “If I lose to him, I’m quitting! I don’t even deserve to be in there! There’s not an easy fight. In the UFC, there’s no easy fight (but) he doesn’t deserve to be in there with me, and I’ll prove it.”

Miller has gone 2-2 in his last four fights, though the UFC was very close to cutting him after the defeat against Bisping based on how lackluster his showing was. Dollaway, meanwhile, also enters the bout following a rough patch, dropping two straight since racking up a three-fight winning streak.

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

Miller-Dollaway will be part of the prelims for the PPV event. The entire main card is made up of heavyweight fights including a headlining tilt between champ Junior dos Santos and #1 contender Alistair Overeem.

    At least he’s admitted that cardio is his one of his problems. But admitting won’t fix it. Get on the treadmill, fatty.

    I agree with hindsight, I don’t remember him gassing before the Bisping fight, and I think a lot of that had to do with emotion and adrenaline, and then having it all taken out of him when in the middle of the fight they had to break because of an accidental eyepoke or low blow, I can’t remember which it was.
