“Mayhem” Miller’s strange antics were always part of his charm, giving way to playful entrances and silly soundbytes. However, the Ultimate Fighter 14 coach’s behavior took a turn towards the dark side in 2013 including a number of bizarre interviews and, even worse, arrests for domestic violence. In the most recent instance of his incarceration Miller is alleged to have attacked his girlfriend and urinated on her.
The sport of MMA is an up-and-down endeavor with competitors typically being defined by their recent runs rather than overall contributions in the cage. A Mixed Martial Artist can be a breakout star one year and looking for employment the next; a potential-laden prospect one year and yesterday’s news the next. It’s a harsh business and, for more than a few fighters, 2013 has been a period of time many would like to forget. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
