Jason “Mayhem” Miller vs. Kala “Kolohe” Hose rescheduled for April 18th

Kingdom MMA’s inaugural event featuring Mayhem Miller vs. Kala ‘Kalohe’ Hose, has been postponed until April 18th due to a little known licensing rule in Hawaii. It seems the Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs (DCCA), the people who regulate all MMA events in Hawaii, have a new rule that all pro fighters must get HEP/HIV testing and physical clearance by a HAWAIIAN doctor.

Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, who lives on the mainland (continental United States), has already been cleared by a doctor in the ‘lower 48’, which the DCCA says they will not accept. So, Miller is currently being evaluated and tested by a Hawaiian physician, which pushes the fight card back to the nearest available date at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, April 18th.

Could Robbie Lawler be headed to the UFC?

by: Jack Bratcher

Robbie Lawler left the UFC in 2004 after two straight losses, first to Nick Diaz at UFC 47 by KO and then to Evan Tanner (R.I.P.) at UFC 50 by Triangle Choke. At the time he was still fairly young and brash.

Now think about this for a moment, since Robbie Lawler left the UFC in 2004 he has lost, count em’…one fight, that’s right, to Jason “Mayhem” Miller (where the hell is he?). And even that was two years ago.
