The bad decisions surrounding the Strikeforce brawl in April may affect a UFC fighter's upcoming bout in August depending on what the Tennessee Athletic Commission ultimately decides. Nate Diaz, who was in the corner of his friend and teammate Jake Shields, was also a part of the melee that broke out between the Cesar Gracie team and Jason Miller in April when a fight erupted after Shields' victory over Dan Henderson. Diaz is expected to be disciplined along with Miller, Shields and others involved in the brawl, according to a report by Sherdog.com earlier this week. If Diaz lands a suspension, it could affect his scheduled fight against Marcus Davis in August. While the suspensions could range anywhere from three to nine months, if that timeline falls in with Diaz's fight, the UFC will honor the suspension and he would have to be replaced. "If he gets suspended we're going to honor it," said UFC president Dana White on Saturday following UFC 114.

This is what should be. Diaz was clearly way out of line and needed to be delt with. As well as Nick and Gilbert. I wonder if they got the same punishment??

I dont think miller should be punished at all.
I agree that they need to set an example, but dicipline Strikefore reps for sending him in,those bunch of dicks are going to let him take the fall for their actions?

It depends on whether or not Tennessee has rules regarding who is and how many people are let in a cage after a fight. If Miller violated one of those rules, he should be suspended.

If they don't have them, they should.

Its still a short suspension had he not had this fight coming up I would think it would have been longer, seems a little stiff to fine a guy and take a payday away but maybe he'll learn from it.

i really don't think it a "stiff" punishment. Too bad he misses a payday. What if any of his umpteen SHOED KICKS landed on Mayhem's temple over and over. He might have missed a lot more than a payday!
