    Mayhem signs with the UFC

    From mmafighting.com:

    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."

    Two words. FUCK YEAH

    I haven't seen a Mayhem fight yet. Hopefully I get the chance because I have heard he's pretty damn good.

    I haven't seen him fight either but I have seen him on Bully Beatdown and he is pretty funny.

    With Strikeforce being owned by the UFC, what happens when other Strikeforce contracts expire? Do they become UFC contracts or are they still treated as a separate entity?

    That's exactly how it works, for the moment. If the UFC decides to cut someone, Strikeforce can then choose to sign that individual. I believe we won't see anything really change until the Showtime contracts expire. They'll just end up absorbing Strikeforce into the UFC the way they did to Pride & the WEC.

    Congrats to Mayhem for getting picked up by the UFC. He may not be the best, but he's very entertaining.

    The thing about the best Rev, is that even they can sometimes get beaten. Doesn't stop them from being the best though

    he is already lined up to fight at ufc 132 with Aaron Simpson. This fight is really a toss up with Mayhem's weakness being high level wrestlers.

    My money is on Mayhem.
