Jason 'Mayhem' Miller Signs With UFC

4/22/2011 2:44 PM ET By Ariel Helwani
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."

Jose Aldo: ‘I will Definitely Beat Mark Hominick’


(Video courtesy of YouTube/MMATrailers)
The UFC 129 hype machine is starting to rev up with the first episode of UFC Primetime: GSP vs. Shields slated for Wednesday. Until then, some of the card’s other main card bouts are getting some play.
In the clip above from the UFC 129 countdown show, WEC featherweight champion-turned UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo expounds on his opponent Mark Hominick.
Surprisingly Aldo doesn’t give the Canadian striker much respect.
“I will definitely beat Mark Hominick. If I didn’t think I could, then I wouldn’t be here now; it’s what I’m focused on — going in there, defending my title and winning. I don’t pay too much attention to what his strengths and weaknesses are,” Aldo said. “I try to pay attention to all aspects of his game and focus on his movements. What he does, how he does it. I don’t pay attention to how technical or emotional he is. I just pay attention to what he does and prepare accordingly.”
As to being a part of the biggest event in UFC history, which will happen to take place in Hominick’s backyard in Toronto, Aldo is nonplussed by the notion of his opponent being the crowd favorite and says he’s just excited to make his UFC debut.
“I’m very focused on my mission but I’m also very excited. I’m very excited to be fighting in the UFC for the first time and being able to defend my title. This is a dream come true. I’m going to be defending my UFC title in front of 55,000 people. I can’t wait. I don’t care where I’m fighting. If I’m fighting in someone’s backyard or not,” he explained. “At the end of the day, when they close the Octagon door, it’s he and I in there. I don’t hear the 55,000 people screaming. I’ve said it before, I don’t know what the hell they’re saying anyway, so it doesn’t bother me. The most important thing to me is to stay focused, the only thing I’m listening to is my corners. As long as I go in there well organized and focused I’ll be able to stay on top and defend my title.”
UFC 129 is set to take place on April 30 at Rogers Centre in Toronto and will feature a strong contingent of Hominicks fellow patriots including Georges St-Pierre, Mark Bocek, Claude Patrick, Rory MacDonald, Jason MacDonald, Sean Pierson, John Makdessi, Ivan Menjivar and Yves Jabouin.

Brenton Robinson has just put out his latest article: Glycemic Index, Glycemic Load, and Energy Metabolism!! everyone should check it out!!

Glycemic Index, Glycemic Load,, and Energy Metabolism





You always hear people talking about “good carbs” and “bad carbs”. It can be confusing to eat the right foods with so many catch 22’s and conflicting information. Glycemic Index refers to the number a particular carbohydrate is assigned based on how fast your body converts it to glucose. The higher the number the faster your body breaks it down. When you eat high glycemic carbohydrates it spikes your insulin level and your body converts the carbs to body fat. Low glycemic carbohydrates (55 and below) break down slowly and help keep blood sugar and insulin level from spiking. These carbohydrates are stored as glycogen that you need for energy. Glycemic load refers to the effect of a “meal” on your blood sugar and insulin levels vs. a particular carbohydrate. When you eat protein and carbohydrates together the protein slows down the effect the carbohydrates have on insulin levels. During anaerobic exercise your body is using ATP (adenosine triphosphate) as a fuel source. Every 5-10 seconds your body must create more ATP. The first source that your body creates ATP from is creatine phosphate. This is why people supplement with creatine for strength and endurance. Creatine is produced naturally in your body and you can find it in foods such as red meat. Creatine is made up of three amino acids - Arginine, Glycine and Methionine. Our liver has the ability to combine these three amino acids and make creatine. The next step in ATP production is glycogen that is stored in the muscle. When you are grappling, sparring, weight training or engaging in activity where short burst of energy are used this is the energy system your body is using. When you engage in long duration low impact exercise such as running, swimming, cycling etc. your body is in the aerobic pathway. Aerobic exercise needs oxygen for fuel and burns body fat. Understanding your body’s energy systems allows you to train specifically for your goals and adjust your nutrition properly to increase performance. Mixed Martial Artist should train specifically for the demands they will face. The S.A.I.D. Principle (Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands) is very important to follow for athletes. Running 10 miles does not translate well to intense 3-5 minute rounds. MMA Fighters should perform plyometrics, sprints, and intense circuits with short rest in between. Flipping tires, slamming Kamagon Balls, running sprints, and performing plyometrics improves your anaerobic system and transfers over to your specific goals. Nutrient timing for performance is equally important. Eating the right types of carbohydrates at the right times will fuel your body while allowing you to stay lean and near the weight that you fight or compete at. In my next article I’ll go into detail about nutrient timing. I’m starting to see cross eyed because I’m so tired. With all the media that Kamagon Fitness has seen lately between the Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, Jake Shields, New Group X Classes and our Certification Program I’m staying busy. Add to that kids and some personal training clients in the evenings and you’ve got my 2a.m. rants about nutrition, exercise and Emil’s sexy new pink cast :) Stay Classy

Here is the TUF recap and another funny pic!!!

Search Amazon.com for ultimate fighter stuff

Ultimate Fighter 13: Episode three recap and discussion for 'Lesnar vs Dos Santos'

    Episode three of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13: "Team Lesnar vs. Team Dos Santos" gets underway with Brock and his boys celebrating their first win of the season.
    Team Lesnar kicks things off in the gym and most of the guys are wondering why they have to be labeled "chicken shit" by their coach - - especially after a win. Brock rallies the troops to try and explain what he means and does a pretty awful job of making them feel better but I guess it's the thought that counts.
    Justin Edwards joins the show to replace Keon Caldwell and Team Dos Santos is worried about an incoming "knucklehead" changing the dynamic of the group but so far Edwards looks to be a good fit.
    Meanwhile, assistant coach Lew Polley is clomping around the gym, still brooding about last week's loss to Chris Cope. He's also frustrated that Junior and coach Billy are treating the team like kids and not gladiators going into battle.
    Has "Cigano" gone soft?!?
    Star-divide
    Polley starts pushing the guys hard during practice, shouting at them and calling them names. He keeps pushing until whoops! Shamar Bailey gets cut from all the intensity. Of course that just further infuriates Lew who orders him to tape it up and get back to work.
    Junior calls a pow-wow after the fact and tells the team he takes the Dalton approach to kicking ass: Do it, but remember to be nice!
    Time for the fight announcement and with Team Lesnar finally in control, they emulate Team Dos Santos and try to match up the strongest fighter versus the weakest. That means Len Bentley will try to pack the bags of Ryan McGillivray.
    Lesnar also wants to get Len some action as he feels his top pick is getting a little restless waiting on the sidelines.
    Will the strategy work?
    Back at the house, Team Lesnar identifies Chris Cope as this season's Benedict Arnold, which seems to be a strange way of showing thanks for getting his team back in control of the picks.
    Bentley runs to Brock to tell him that Cope is watching him train, perhaps a little too closely, and is afraid he might share some pivotal information with the other team. Lesnar tells him not to get "caught up in the bullshit" and to worry about his fight.
    Speaking of Team Dos Santos, taskmaster Lew is cracking the whip again and Junior has to pull him aside and remind him it's Cigano's world -- he just lives in it. Polley takes it like a man and admits he got "out of his lane" and it all ends happily after a fist bump.
    McGillivray is about ten pounds overweight which means it's time to break out the rubber ducky and a box of Epsom salt. No sweat! (har har) as he gets the weight off and hits his mark.
    Brock has to break the bad news to Len Bentley that he has a personal issue to attend to and can't be there for his fight. Not surprisingly, Bentley doesn't seem that broken up about it.
    It's fight day and above the locker room doors it says "Never leave it in the hands of the judges." An ominous sign if there ever was one. It's soon forgotten as "Shogun" Rua stops by to wish the contestants good luck.
    Elimination bout #3: Team Lesnar's Len Bentley (9-4) vs. Team Dos Santos' Ryan McGillivray (11-4-1)
    Round 1: Chandella makes the rounds to the sound of crickets and dry coughing. Bentley opens up aggressive, walking McGillivray (McG) down and throwing crisp strikes. Ryan is game and counter-punches but Bentley walks right through it and floors him with a left to the kisser. Bentley swarms and McG squirms, clearly in survival mode. He tangles him up long enough to recover and works his way into full guard. Bentley resets and lets McG back to his feet but perhaps feeling a bit overconfident waddles in with little-to-no-defense. McG makes him pay with three clean shots to the dome, each one landing harder than the last. Bentley stumbles back and McG lets one go that puts his confused foe right on his keister. Now it's Ryan's turn to swarm and finish and uses Bentley's guard to muscle him to the cage. "Poosh!" screams coach Dos Santos. McG leaves an arm exposed and Bentley cranks it but rolls over into a crucifix. He lunges and turns over and McG greets him with a guillotine, tries for the gator roll and squeezes. Lenny turns bright red but gets saved by the bell. Awesome first round of action. Finally! 10-9 McGillivray on the unofficial Nostradumbass scorecard.
    Round 2: Chandella is back and to her credit, has a pretty nice ass. The fighters open with simultaneous jabs to the face. Bentley stalking and tags him hard but McG returns fire. Both guys eat shots again proving that striking defense is truly a lost art. Body kick finds its mark for Bentley then a right. Bentley with a fight-ender from four feet away that gets nothing but air followed by a spinning back fist that is so off-center it hits McG in the shoulder blades. McG tags him and uses the opening to rush in with fists of fury. He backs Bentley into the cage who grabs a hold of the neck. McG muscles out a takedown but Bentley pops right back up. McG eats a few knees and backs off. To the center of the Octagon they go and sloppy strikes are flying. Like round one, Bentley started off hot but McG is stealing it from him. Bentley misses with two spinning back fists and McG lights him up with ten seconds left. Damn that round was close but again I go with McGillivray 10-9 by the narrowest of margins. I'm apparently not alone.
    Result: Ryan McGillivray defeats Len Bentley via majority decision
    Back in the locker room McGillivray buries his head in his towel and lets it all go. He's emotional after the big win and based on the expectations going into the fight, I'd say he has every right to be.
    Team Dos Santos takes a 2-1 lead.
    Stay tuned next week for a look at some digitized cock, Coach Dos Santos tosses one of his students in the air like a newborn baby and two more welterweights go to war.
    Hey look, there's Matt Hughes!
    See you right here next Wednesday night. Same TUF-time, same TUF-station.

    Training for Performance vs. Appearance


    Training for performance is much different than simply training for appearance. I started competing in bodybuilding a couple of years after high school. After a few years of training for bodybuilding I was competing at the national level winning state and regional shows and walking around at 220 lbs at five foot five. I could bench press over 400 lbs. deadlift and squat over 500 for reps and then I walked into North Dallas Mixed Martial Arts one day.




    I had trained a little bit in Kali and Muay Thai but not very seriously. J.D. Shelly was my first grappling or MMA coach. I remember my first day looking around thinking look at these little guys I'm going to throw them around. Then I woke up in the bathroom next to a toilet! I was sold. I just had my ass handed to me by a bunch of guys half my size and I wanted to know what they knew and train like they trained!


    There's a reason the lion is the king of the jungle and not the elephant. Training for purely bodybuilding had served it's purpose. I learned a lot about nutrition and the human body. I built a lot of strength that would transfer over, but I had no endurance and was in no condition to fight in mixed martial arts.


    When you train for appearance you are not concerned with performance. Bodybuilders are commonly seen backstage with oxygen mask or curled up in the fetal position because they are so dehydrated.You can't really fight an elite athlete that happens to be an extremely skilled fighter in that condition! Bodybuilding requires a lot of mental toughness and you learn how to deal with a very regimented lifestyle. Lots of discipline and dedication are required. I was drawn to bodybuilding because I am competitive and the fact that that it requires you to put in the work yourself.


    With MMA you are definitely the only man that steps into the cage across from your opponent. You might walk out with your corner but once you step in that cage it's up to you to win. Training to fight completely changed the way that I train. It was no longer about pushing some heavy weights or eating 400g of protein a day. You now have an All American wrestler that just happens to be a Golden Gloves boxer and oh yeah solid purple belt in BJJ coming at you. It's the third round of shark tank drills and this guy is well rested coming at you. Even better it's the fifth round of a championship bout that is even 2 rounds a piece with a minute left.


    You can see where agility, endurance, strength, balance, neuromuscular coordination, proprioceptive awareness, nutrient timing, performance nutrition and more "functional" types of training come into play. If you're not familiar with all of these topics you will be if you read my column on Emil's page. I'm going to cover everything from performance nutrition to strength and conditioning.



    I started training with J.D. in Dallas and then soon moved to Florida where I discovered Sambo under the beatings of Carlos Cummings: www.cummingcombatsambo.com I Had to give Carlos a shout in my first column since I vomited more in my life between Carlos and G in the first couple months I walked through the doors of CCS. Flipping tires, swinging sledge hammers, doing plyometrics, running sprints, shark tank drills etc.


    I prefer to train with things now like a Kamagon Ball which can be used like a hybrid kettle bell, medicine ball, tornado ball and more. www.kamagonball.com I like to use TRX Trainers, BOSU Balls, Weighted Vest and I do a lot of plyometrics. My nutrition is more complete focusing on micronutrients and macronutrients. I eat to stay lean and strong but not bulky or depleted. Over the past decade exercise and nutrition have been my life from personal training and running gyms to fitness equipment and training methods.



    I'll be updating this about once a week with new training techniques, nutrition tips, keys to cutting or making weight the right way as well as gossip about Emil's secret life as a ninja that you won't catch on TMZ!

    Sounds Like a Case of the Mondays!!!

    Did you all enjoy the weekend?  How many people checked out the strikeforce show and what did you think?  I read something interesting today, it said that Diego Sanchez wants to coach the next Ultimate Fighter against Nick Diaz which would make for an interesting show!  However, he is not the only one who wants to land a coaching spot on the show.  Others, such as Urijah Faber vs. Dominick Cruz, Micheal Bisping vs. Chael Sonnen, and Jason “Mayhem” Miller vs. anyone are all names that have been thrown out there over the past few weeks.  Personally I would love to see Mayhem vs. Sonnen, what would y’all like to see?  Anyways, happy Monday, have a good rest of the day!!!

    SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!!! HAHA 2:00 AM TIME FOR BEDDY BYE

    Had  a great night with great friends celebrating my wife Heather's 22nd birthday I can't wait till my bday so we can do it again we had to break out the ol jiu jitsu mats and thai pads around midnight :)  it got a little crazy!   Hope you all are having an amazing weekend and I hope the next weekend treats you just as good!! 

    Now for my review of the Strikeforce fights......  Aoki locked up a great rear naked choke to secure his victory he is an excellent fighter.  Gegard Mousassi and Keith Jardine go the distance and end up getting a draw or as Chavous put it they drew haha....  Gill Melendez dominated in his fight to get yet another victory he is definitely top 5 for his division and needs to be put up against some UFC guys.....  and finally, Diaz out boxes semtex (Paul Daley) and defeats him by referee stoppage, however Daley did win something.... He is the new raining champion of the Stinky Leg after his sketchy fall before the end of the fight....  Rashad Evans held this title before this fight but Semtex has definitely secured a firm victory!!! 

    What do you think about the fights?  Please comment below and let me know !!!! (did not try to rhyme on purpose)  If you didn't have a chance to watch the fights leave me a comment anyways and let me know how I'm doing with this blog (suggestions are welcome and will be taken into consideration!!) 

    Thanks again for tuning in to my blog stay tuned for more exciting posts and interesting stuff!!!!

    Technique of the Month and Eddie Bravo = Awesome!

    The technique of the month is all over the news  be sure to check it out, click here ~~~>>  TECHNIQUEoftheMonth


    Eddie Bravo basking in glow of UFC's first-ever "twister," set for DVD release

    History was made recently when "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung forced Leonard Garcia to tap to the first-ever twister submission in the UFC history, which came this past month at UFC Fight Night 24.

    Jung stated in his post-fight interview with UFC commentator Joe Rogan he had learned the technique by watching online instructional videos of 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu's Eddie Bravo.

    Along with the Internet postings, Bravo already has a book on the market entitled "Mastering the Twister," and he currently is in the process of finalizing a DVD on the subject set for release in June or July.

    In other words, the timing could not have been better.

    Although Bravo did not invent the twister, a move that originates in wrestling (in which it is known as the guillotine), he is credited with successfully adapting and popularizing the move in the world of jiu jitsu.

    "It was pretty amazing, pretty surreal," Bravo recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) after seeing his baby hatch for the first time inside the octagon. "It was actually not the first twister in MMA. It was the first twister in the UFC, but there have been four or five other ones in smaller shows."

    Shayna Baszler, Jason Day, Jason Chambers and Nick Thompson all have successfully executed the technique on the regional circuit in recent years, but none executed on a significant platform like Jung did.

    "I'm shocked we haven't seen the twister more in MMA," Bravo said. "In my schools, it's normal. It's not that crazy. When people saw the twister in the UFC, that was the whole world watching. People freaked out. They didn't know what the hell that was."

    You have to go all the way back to 1985 to trace the metamorphosis of the wrestling guillotine to the jiu-jitsu twister. It began on the wrestling mats in California at Santa Ana High School, where Bravo was a member of the school's wrestling team competing in the 119-pound weight division.

    It would be two upperclassmen, one junior and one senior, who pulled him aside and taught him the move. They both thought it would be ideal for the small-framed Bravo, who lacked a bit in the strength department.

    "Us weak wrestlers were forced to use our legs in unorthodox ways," Bravo said. "In wrestling they're called 'leg riders.' Leg riders are usually the ones that are good with the guillotine."

    In his 20s, Bravo began to train in Brazilian jiu jitsu and find his calling. He brought the guillotine along with him.

    "It was always the guillotine to me," he said. "My instructor Jean-Jacques Machado changed the name to the twister, him and his brother. They didn't know what it was. I told them it was a wrestling move I learned in the ninth grade called the guillotine. And there was already a guillotine in jiu jitsu, so they didn't call it the guillotine. They kept calling it the twister.

    "Finally, they started calling me the twister, and I hated that. I thought that was the weakest nickname ever. It just reminder me of yellow, green and blue dots with kids playing the twister game."

    While it initially may have been rather silly and turned off Bravo, he slowly warmed up to the idea once he started competing and finding success in jiu-jitsu tournaments.

    "When people started calling me twister at school, I wanted to put a stop to it," he said. "It became cool in tournaments when I would compete. People in the audience would start calling out the twister. Then all the sudden it was cool. The nickname just stuck. People started calling me 'Twister Eddie' or just 'The Twister.'"

    In time, "The Twister" would go on to teach the move to his students while he blossomed into one of the most respected jiu-jitsu instructors in the world.

    Now that the aforementioned Jung has brought the twister to the forefront, Bravo fully expects to see the frequency of the maneuver to increase in MMA.

    "That's usually the way MMA works," he said. "No one wants to add a new technique into their system until they see someone do it first. Now people are going to start to do it."

    While he does expect the sheer volume of twister submission attempts to increase, he does not forecast it ever being prevalent. Fighters are often hesitant to expand their jiu-jitsu skill set, for whatever reason.

    "It's very hard to add new weapons to your jiu-jitsu game when you're just sparring," Bravo said. "It's a very slow pace. You have to spend time just drilling without 100 percent resistance and keep drilling that move that is foreign to your game until it is in your DNA.

    "We might see their positioning and submission defense evolve, but in order to add new weapons to your game, you have to spend time practicing and drilling them. Very few MMA fighters do that. There's just too much to train, and they're just too tired."

    For those who do implement the twister, variations such as the banana split and the crotch ripper could eventually be on the way to the cage as the technique progresses.

    Make sure you keep your eyes peeled. "The Twister" most certainly will be doing so.

    Thiago Silva Gets One-Year Suspension and $33,750 Fine For Trying to Cheat UFC 125 Drug Test Using Synthetic Urine

    (“I’m pissed. That son of a bitch sold me a six pack of that shit and said it was the good stuff.”)
    UFC light heavyweight Thiago Silva won’t be able to fight again until at least January 1, 2012, and he will be $33,750 lighter in the wallet and will have one less win on his record when he finally returns to competition.
    Silva was handed the hefty suspension and fine and had the result of his UFC 125 win over Brandon Vera changed to a “no-contest”after admitting in a hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission today that he used steroids and tried to mask his wrongdoing by providing a synthetic urine sample he purchased online for his pre-fight drug screen.
    According to MMAJunkie’s John Morgan who was present at the hearing,
    Silva waived his right for an attorney and additional time to prepare a defense and instead admitted what he took and explained the method he used to try to fool the lab.
    “I’m here just to tell the truth,” Silva said.
    He detailed how he received two epidural injections — 45 and 30 days out from the bout with Vera — of an unnamed steroid by his doctor to help speed recovery from a back injury and that he purchased the synthetic urine he used for his drug screening test online from cleartest.com. He likely would have gotten away with it had the lab used by NSAC not been a World Anti-Doping Agency-approved test center that utilized hormone-screening processes to determine if test samples are both human and from the same sex as the provider of the specimen (insert Cyborg joke here).
    Silva explained that he knew using the drug was against NSAC rules, but said he felt pressured to compete in spite of being hurt because he had not fought in a year due to the same injury and his family’s livelihood depended on him being paid for the bout.
    “I just want to apologize for what I did. I did what I did because my back was very, very bad a couple months (before the fight). I had not fought for one year. I was completely broke. I have a family. People depend on my money. I was desperate to do something.I know what I did is wrong. Like I said, I’m so sorry. I had my reasons. People depend on my money, and I had to give them support.”
    He detailed how he simply turned his back on the commission rep assigned to oversee the drug tests administered two weeks prior to the New Year’s Day event in Las Vegas and opened the container containing the fake urine and dumped it into a sample cup without the commissioner noticing.
    NSAC executive director Keith Kizer tried to make an example of Silva for not admitting any wrongdoing until caught by requesting that his suspension start today, rather than retroactive to the date of UFC 125. However, when put to a vote, the other members of the commission voted in favor of allowing the days since the bout to count against the suspension due in part to Silva’s “candor” and also because the commission dropped the for not watching the sample collection more closely.
    Originally, the commission wanted to take Silva’s entire $55,000 win bonus and 1/3 of his $55,000 purse, but decided instead to hold back 1/4 of his purse and $20,000 of his win bonus for a total of $33,750.
    The UFC has yet to comment on the situation.
    Two important questions now arise from the hearing:
    Should commissions be required to test fighters year-round for PEDs using sport-wide WADA approved methods like NSAC employs to ensure a level playing field?
    and
    Do fighters need a union to negotiate minimum salaries for fighters rather than simply “pay-to-play” and performance bonus-based incentives promotions currently dole out that include a living wage so competitors don’t ever have to feel that they need to cheat to compete?

    TUF 13 episode 2 recap and funny pic of day

    TUF 13 episode 2
    All in all I would have to say it was another boring fight on TUF last night I would have subbed both of those clowns in the first round!!!  Chris Cope and Javier Torres spent three rounds putting on a hugging clinic for all of the viewers and neither fighter seemed to immpressive except for Javier's taunting methods which only actually work if you are returning fire after getting hit (probably why he lost).  If your would like to know how it all went down CLICK HERE for a recap of the episode.  Hoping next week we have some good action to liven this season up!
