Mayhem Miller has kept a low profile since losing to Michael Bisping a few weeks ago, but now he's out of hiding and has posted his thoughts on the fight on his blog. Here's what he has to say:
"As someone who goes to my website, you are well aware that I lost my recent
fight. I am very disappointed about it, but have used the past couple weeks to reflect on everything and have come to some conclusions.
"Dana White was right. He made some disparaging comments about my performance, and I agree with him. I displayed the worst of everything that night in the octagon. I was tense in round one and I locked up after that. I didn’t perform to my potential, and I take full responsibility for it. That wasn’t a UFC caliber performance, and I’m not happy about it- I won’t, however, write a worthless diatribe on myself, because that is not constructive. I elect instead to take this misstep and make something positive out of it.
"We are all the custodians of our own destinies, and we must all try to do the absolute best with what we have to work with- sometimes you will have great successes and other times colossal failure, but if you don’t try time and time again, you will be left on your couch with nothing but a bucket of “What-ifs.” You have no choice in this life but to push forward and try to do the best you can."
Mayhem goes on to say that he's currently in Holland, working on his kickboxing. This is a good move, because he was clearly outclassed on the feet against Bisping. Mayhem is a talented fighter and I'm sure we'll see him back in the UFC again.
