Jason “Mayhem” Miller will be fighting on the WFA’s “King of the Streets” card on July 22nd. His opponent will be former Ultimate Fighter contestant Lodune Sincaid, who is on a winning streak that includes wins over James Irvin and Alex Schoenauer. When asked about his fight against Sincaid, Mayhem said, “I’m looking to get elected as the a##-kicking president.”

Mayhem has recently been from one side of the spectrum to the other when it comes to fighting in different weight classes. His UFC debut was against Georges St. Pierre in the 170-pound division, and St. Pierre defeated Miller in a one-sided unanimous decision. On the subject of fighting at 170 pounds, Miller said, “Do you know how a teenage girl goes through that awkward phase… that’s what 170 was for me.” Mayhem said he walked “around like Skeletor” and added, “Maybe I shouldn’t have starved myself for three months.”

This past March, Mayhem fought a giant of a man, Stefan Gamlin, who weighs over 300 pounds. Regarding the Gamlin fight, Miller said, “I tried to get heavy. I was eating everything I could, and I was still 211 [or] 213.” Miller submitted Gamlin in 46 seconds, and as Miller put it, Gamlin was like an “oil tanker and then I dismantled him piece by piece in 46 seconds.”

Miller’s next fight will be in the light heavyweight division against Lodune Sincaid. Mayhem feels that his movement and speed are both good for the 205-pound weight class, and he won’t really have to worry about cutting weight because he currently weighs about 207 pounds. Mayhem smiled as he said, “The awkward phase is over. I’m good, my braces are off…”
