If colorful middleweight Jason Miller comes up short in his May 26 match-up against Ultimate Fighter finalist C.B. Dollaway he plans on doing both fans and his Zuffa employers a favor by saving them some time. Instead of seeing any energy wasted calling for or issuing his release from the UFC, “Mayhem” is ready to turn in his walking papers, acknowledging he doesn’t deserve the honor of competing inside the Octagon.
“If I lose to him, I’m quitting! I don’t even deserve to be in there,” an animated Miller exclaimed while stopping by the set of MMA Uncensored Live. “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.”
“We’re both in a similar spot in our career I guess. We’re both on the chopping block. That’s fine. I’m really happy with that,” he confessed.
Miller’s abilities came into question this past December after suffering a one-sided beating from Michael Bisping after the two had faced off as rival coaches on the Ultimate Fighter. The 31-year old had won two in a row prior to the defeat but hasn’t beaten a ranked opponent in years.
Dollaway and Miller meet on the UFC 146 undercard. The event is headlined by Junior dos Santos putting his strap up for grabs against Alistair Overeem with the entire PPV comprised of heavyweight bouts.

MMATraining Take: I appreciate Miller’s honesty on the matter and agree a loss to Dollaway, who is tough but hasn’t developed much since first showing up on the scene, would definitely indicate that, though Miller is a showman and scrapper, he’s not an elite Mixed Martial Artist.
