Specific charges on Miller
The fighter has been reportedly charged with one felony count each pertaining to first-degree burglary, unlawful taking of a vehicle and grand theft auto. According to court records, a felony count of attempted grand theft was dismissed as part of the plea deal.
Miller has been involved in several legal wars after he stepped down from MMA. He was charged with a felony count of vandalism and a misdemeanor count of violating a protective stay-away order in 2019. This landed him a year in jail.
As per reports by the CBS Los Angeles, the fighter had faced charges of domestic violence in 2017. The report said, “Guilty to beating that same girlfriend and was sentenced to 124 days in jail. He was released with credit for time served, according to court records..”
Miller has been a successful MMA fighter and holds a record of 28-10-1. The fighter has worked with several top promotions like Strikeforce, Dream and UFC in his fighting career. The ‘Mayhem’ was also a coach on the 14th season of UFC, alongside Michael Bisping.
His rivalry with Bisping made the season quite interesting for the fans. However, Bisping defeated Miller in their last bout with a KO at the TUF 14 finals.
High-profile fighters like Kazushia Sakuraba, Tim Kennedy and Robbie Lawler have tasted defeat at the hands of Miller.
After several losses in 2011, he decided to take a break. However, he made a return against Mattia Schiavolin for Venator FC3. Miller was forced to submit in the fight and has not entered the Octagon since then.
