Just last week, Jason Miller got into a Twitter spat with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White. During the course of their exchange, "Mayhem" told White to "kill yourself" while the Octagon boss returned fire.
White would later say he regretted getting into it with his former employee like that because he was worried about Miller, who is "depressed" and "on pills." Apparently, the leader of his so-called Monkeys wasn't dealing too well with his career spiraling out of control after two losses and a backstage skirmish that led to his release from the UFC.
Just days later, Miller was arrested in Orange County for breaking into a church and trashing the place by spraying a fire extinguisher everywhere. When he was detained by police, he was also wearing his birthday suit.
Naturally, this led to a great deal of worry around the mixed martial arts (MMA) community but "Mayhem" took to Facebook to assuage those fears.
"I know you all are probably very confused about me right now and concerned for my well being. I thank you for that, and please unnastand [sic] that everything is fine, and will probably make a lot more sense as time passes. Love you all."
Despite this, Miller has been ranting on his Twitter account and saying a lot of worrisome things. Read his tweets after the jump.
"'WE are all very concerned about you Jason-unless it interferes with MY schedule.' ... I did some socially unacceptable things last Sunday, that, for some reason has got some of you to hate me, even though at one time you loved ... I am caring for myself-if everyone turns their back on me, and you never see me on tv again, that is fine with me-I like living in the woods ... But while working with those less fortunate than myself, I have come to realize, WE are all crazy. America is crazy. I just want to shift it ... Not a cry for attention, personal glory, or monetary Gain. I did that in my time fighting for the @UFC and Have come to see I was wrong. ... I am safe, with people that love me, and hope that you will join me. If I ever hurt anyone, I am sorry."
This all may have started as an entertaining Twitter beef but it's gone far past that now with an arrest and a now a series of tweets that are worrisome to say the least. They sound good on the surface, sure, but considering the source and all that's happened, one can only hope Miller is truly okay.
We here at MMAmania.com certainly wish him the best.
