Video: ‘Mayhem’ Miller Misses Weight by 24 Pounds for Venator FC 3 Bout
Troubled former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Jason Miller
missed weight by 24 pounds for scheduled middleweight title fight
against fellow Octagon veteran Luke
Venator FC 3.
“Mayhem” initially checked in at 209 pounds for the bout, which was
then scrapped. Instead, Barnatt will defend his belt against
Croitoru, who was supposed to fight earlier on the card,
according to multiple reports.
MMAFighting.com, Venator FC reportedly offered Barnatt 30
percent of Miller’s purse and an additional five thousand euros to
remain in the fight against “Mayhem”, but the British fighter
declined the offer. Instead, Miller, who weighed in at 205 pounds
five hours after his first try, will lock horns with Mattia
Schiavolin in a light heavyweight contest. Miller will weigh-in
again on Saturday, at which time he cannot tip the scales heavier
than 207 pounds.
Venator FC 3 takes place in Milan, Italy, and is headlined by a
welterweight showdown between Rousimar
Palhares and Emil Weber
Meek. Matt Hamill
will square off with Rameau
Thierry Sokoudjou in another featured contest, while familiar
names such as Igor Araujo,
McKenzie and Che Mills are
also scheduled to compete.
Video footage of Friday’s weigh-in fiasco was captured by MMA Latest News.
