Although not specified, Dana said it was due to his "antics" while referencing the pink wear that Mayhem wore.

That didn't give much of any new info. Hate it when something happens and when don't get all the info right away.

Pretty sure it had nothing to do with the weigh-in stuff.

He was going to get cut after losing to CB anyway and then whatever incident backstage just moved up the firing to that same night.

According to Middleeasy (so take it for what it's worth)



Apparently when Mayhem walked backstage after the bout, he sat down against a wall, probably reflecting on his fight with CB Dollaway. Someone backstage (not sure if it was MGM or UFC staff) asked Mayhem to 'clear the path' and get out of the corridor. Mayhem either didn't hear him or simply was wrapped-up in his own thoughts to care. The staff member then tried to pat him on the back in order to encourage him to move. It's rumored Mayhem Miller quickly got up, yelled at the staff member and then kicked over a table. A few UFC employees questioned why he did it, and apparently he got in a verbal altercation with them. At the post-fight screening, Mayhem starting yelling at CB regarding the decision and threw an object at him. Dollaway continued to sit down and get checked out by the doctor. Mayhem then went into the locker room, gathered his belongings and left the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The UFC couldn't even contact him for his post-fight quote. Nothing physical happened, just mayhem. It's also apparent that Mayhem Miller was on his way out of the UFC if he lost at UFC 146, this incident didn't cause him being cut from the promotion. We also talked with CB Dollaway after the fight, and he still seemed pretty heated after the backstage verbal exchange. We'll post the entire interview later today on MiddleEasy.

Watching a fighter lose by LNP is bad enough, can't imagine losing that way. Still a completely piss poor reaction, strong wrestler's have been Millers nemesis so he should either figure out how to defeat it or how to avoid it.

I didn't even get to watch the fight.

But I picked CB based soley on how Miller always gases

Mayhem is going to be on Ariel's show today at 3:20 EST, so we should get the real skinny on what went down...or at least Mayhem's version of it. I've read so many different things about what happened that I'm pretty interested to see exactly what went down.
