Huzzah! We’re done with Part Two of our web series on the inimitable Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Kingdom of Mayhem: Road to DREAM Middleweight Championship. As mentioned in the earlier post with photos from the shoot, Jason boarded a plane for Tokyo today (the fight is in Yokohama) to fight Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza for the DREAM Middleweight title next Tuesday on May 26th (televised at 12 am here on the left coast). We didn’t get to follow our subject to Japan this time but perhaps next time.
In this episode we followed Mayhem to the Jason Ellis Show for “Mayhem Mondays” and then we’re off to Mayhem’s last hard training session at Gracie Barra Cerritos with Renato “Babalu” Sobral, kickboxing legend Rob Kaman, wrestler David Bertolini who is currently at the Olympic Training Center, and skilled jiu jitsu practioner, Bruno Paulista.
Also, the second half of the video features the gorgeously intense song “Flight” by the Brooklyn-based Spaces, whom I stumbled on over at Waxin’ & Milkin’. They were kind enough to let us use their music, so check them out at spacescold.com, and listen to their music here.
Here’s part one if you missed it, part two below, and check back later this week for part three.
