Jason "Mayhem" Miller is going back to the UFC.

The popular middleweight has signed a new multi-fight agreement with the organization, Miller's manager Ryan Parsons confirmed with MMA Fighting.

The 30-year-old Miller (24-7, 1 NC) was able to sign with the UFC due to the fact that his contract with Strikeforce had expired. No word just yet on when his first fight back inside the Octagon will take place.

"Mayhem" had not competed for Strikeforce since last April when he defeated Tim Stout on the undercard of Strikeforce: Nashville. He went on to defeat one of his MMA idols, Kazushi Sakuraba, at DREAM.16 in September, which stands as his last fight to date.

He was close to returning to action against the likes of Nick Diaz and Tim Kennedy, but for various reasons, some even still unknown, those fights never materialized.

The star of MTV's Bully Beatdown last fought for the UFC in 2005 when he dropped a unanimous decision to Georges St-Pierre. Two years later, Miller returned to Zuffa, defeating Hiromitsu Miura via unanimous decision at WEC 27.

Miller was a guest on a recent episode of The MMA Hour, and he appeared excited at the prospect of facing some of the UFC's best middleweights.

"I will beat the brakes off most of the guys in the middleweight divisions in the UFC," he said. "I guaran-damn-tee it."

Mayhem might never be a champion but he's a high caliber gate keeper and I'm glad to see him in the UFC again.

Anyone reckon they'll allow him to do his elaborate entrances? Doubtful.

Good to see him back.

If he's on the main card of a ppv, then yes. Any other situation, No.

If there's a chance it'll turn up on tv at all then yes. Guy is very marketable. They will market him and make money off of him - his entrances are a big part of that.

The problem with Spike TV and Spike TV prelims are they dont show entrances, no matter how marketable thats why I was thinking it would only be for PPV only. However I think ION television showed entrances and breaks in between rounds.

Yes!! Great pickup

Mayhem hasn't fought in like forever. I bet the ufc puts him on a card for the summer. Can't wait to see his entrance, him vs tom lawler would be cool

Good for him

I hope he does well in the UFC, he is a tuf fighter with great sub defense and GG and he brings it.


The ufc should give Mayhem a mid level fighter like

CB dollawy aaron simpson kendall grove
if he wins he should fight
leben or akiyama after Vitor does

I dont think they should put him up against anyone top 5 right away

I say Nate Diaz move up to fight him with Nick coaching at ringside. Id love to hear the banter back and forth.
