    I remember coming across a video of Mayhem grappling Vinny when they were both training with laimon, who was scoring the match in the video. This was before Vinny was on tuf and they were grappling in gi, which miller mentioned in the video he hadn't trained with in a long time. Nothing really special about the video, mayhem gets completely dominated on points if i remember right, which really isn't saying much since he's facing one of the best grapplers in the world).

    Is Mayhem's BJJ blackbelt level? He did hold his own against Jacare at Dream

    He is a wrestler but just from his sub defense I would say IMO he is at least on a purple belt level in BJJ....

    FWIW, Wikipedia lists him as a brown belt.

    When he fought GSP he was a purple belt I think.

    Miller has been a brown forever, he quit training Gi at brown. He is easily at least a run of the mill blackbelt....

    mayhem has been a brown belt since 2002 i believe. And he trains with high level guys every day, hes a good black belt level now. take my word for it, regardless of what he "Officially" is.

    Well we all saw him almost choke Jake Shields unconscious before Jake got saved by the bell, right?

    He's not a wrestler. And he was a purple belt when he fought GSP in '05. Training as a pro for 5 years since, I'm sure he's at black belt level.

    I've known a few dudes that rolled with Mayhem and I've heard nothing but good things about him. Also heard he's excellent at teaching people stuff as well.

    Mayhem has a clip on youtube teaching the Canadian Darce. While it is hard to tell from just one clip, it seems that he would be a pretty good instructor. There is plenty of technical knowledge/breakdown and comedy helps people remember some of the smaller parts.

    i wonder if mayhem miller told them to add the part at the end of the vid that says he tapped out vinny the next day. it'd be interesting to see that vid if they had one.

    Hmm, I thought that was his base... I wasn't saying he wasn't at a BB level I was just saying that he had to AT LEAST be a purple belt.... Shit I am glad he is a BB. Big Mayhem fan here...

    Have a good weekend Rambo..
