One of the most charasmatic and popular figures in the sport of mixed martial arts today — Jason “Mayhem” Miller (21-6) — announced that he was retiring from the sport during an interview with FightHype.com earlier today.

Here’s a snip:

“I got plenty of money. I don’t even care. I just do it for fun. I love fighting, but I’m just doing it for fun. I don’t feel like doing it right now, so I’m not going to do it. There’s no need. There’s no need for me to fight, so I’m just happy to have lived such a fun career inside of MMA, so if it ends now, it was fun.”

yeah this kind of sucks but he sounds like he'll be back. he's only 27 years old he can't possibly be done competing yet.

Mayhem has a ton of potential but not mindset IMO. He's too goofy and doesn't take the sport seriously enough. I know that sounds bashing- but in reality Mayhem is one of my favorite fighters. I know he always brings 100% of a fight to the table every time he fights, but I just feel like he's in it to have fun and kick some ass. I firmly believe people have to have the mindset of "I'm a champion" if they want to be a champion.

I hope we get to see more of Mayhem, though. He's a respecftul, skilled, and entertaining fighter.

I wonder if he's being serious, the timing is kind of odd with Anderson Silva talking about retiring so early.
