Jason 'Mayhem' Miller walks out on The MMA Hour after bizarre behavior on set

MMA Fighting

Jason "Mayhem" Miller flew from Southern California to New York City to make an appearance on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour.

The planned one-hour segment was Miller's first interview in months, but it turned into something entirely different than anyone expected.

Miller showed up as his character Lucky Patrick from the upcoming movie "Here Comes the Boom," and never dropped the schtick. In a poorly acted farce, Miller stayed in character, was belligerent to host Ariel Helwani, and refused several attempts to change the subject before finally leaving the set less than 20 minutes into the show.

The show switched to a pre-taped Pat Barry video, then went off the air for several minutes, before Helwani returned and addressed the situation.

"That was interesting, and also a little bit frightening, and a little bit sad." Helwani said.

The incident was the latest in a string of bizarre behavior exhibited by the Orange County, Calif. resident since being cut by the UFC after his UFC 146 loss to CB Dollaway.

The 31-year-old Miller was arrested on Aug. 13 after being found naked in a church in Mission Viejo, Calif. Last month he appeared before an Orange County Superior Court judge and was charged with one count of misdemeanor vandalism, which carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail if convicted. He'll appear in court again Nov. 21.

Helwani saw Miller's actions as a missed opportunity to explain his recent behavior.

"I thought he was going come and use that platform to discuss what was going on over the past couple months," Helwani said. "I didn't think he'd come all the way from California to do that. And that's unfortunate because I think this could have been a good platform for him."
