Dream 16 | Mayhem Chokes The Gracie HunterCategory: MMA
In one of the most infamous incident in mixed-martial arts history, Jason Miller caused the “Strikeforce brawl” when he confronted Strikeforce Middleweight champion Jake Shields in the center of the ring after Shields’ win over Tim Stout at Strikeforce: Nashville. A mayhem immediately ensued.
Fined and given suspension for three months, Miller returned to fight in Japan for Dream 16 last September 25, 2010.
He faced one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, Kazushi Sakuraba.
Known as the The Gracie Hunter for his wins over four members of the famed Gracie family (Royler Gracie, Renzo Gracie, Ryan Gracie, and Royce Gracie), the Japanese Sakuraba (26 wins – 13 losses) also holds memorable matches over great names like Kimo, Carlos Newton, Vito Belfort, Guy Mezger, Wanderlei Silva, Rampage Jackson, Kevin Randleman, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ken Shamrock.
Meanwhile, American Jason Miller (23 wins – 7 losses) aside from fighting is a host of several MMA shows. He regularly co-hosts “Mayhem Mondays” on The Jason Ellis Show on Sirius satellite radio, a reality show called Bully Beatdown, which airs on MTV and MTV2 and he also announces for King of the Cage alongside Michael Schiavello.
He was defeated by Jake Shields for the vacant Strikeforce Middleweight title at Strikeforce: Fedor vs Rogers.
Dream 16 results: Miller defeated Sakuraba via submission (arm-triangle choke) at 2:09 of round 1.
