Jason “Mayhem” Miller has apologized on his official website for his actions following Jake Shields’ victory over Dan Henderson in the main event of Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Nashville” on CBS, which set off a much talked about post-fight brawl between Miller and Shields and his team.
Here’s what “Mayhem” wrote:
I would like to formally apologize to CBS, Strikeforce, and all fans of mixed martial arts for my role in the events following the Strikeforce: Nashville event. In retrospect, my timing could not have been worse to ask for my rematch with Jake Sheilds, and I take full responsibility for entering the cage and setting off a chain of events that cast a dark shadow on the sport. I’ve been a fighter and a fan of MMA for over 12 years, and would never do anything to intentionally tarnish the sport I’ve given my life to. In the excitement of the moment I let my emotions run high and made a bad choice that resulted in a debacle, for that, I sincerely apologize.
