UFC middleweight Uriah Hall entered the UFC with plenty of hype following his incredible run on season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter. Hall stumbled in his first two appearances and he’s now preparing for a do or die fight at UFC 168 against Chris Leben.

Before his fight, however, Hall was in the center of controversy after getting in to a heated altercation with former UFC fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller.

Mayhem came at Hall and threw racial slurs in his direction, which initially set Hall over the edge and caused him to punch Mayhem in a crowded room. Video of the incident surfaced, and since then people have been wondering what the future will hold for Hall since the UFC has generally had a zero tolerance level for shenanigans outside of the cage.

Fans have been asking UFC president Dana White if Hall would be punished because of the incident, but he chimed back in with an entertaining response that everyone can appreciate:

Mayhem is a guy that continues to burn bridges outside of mixed martial arts, so it is no surprise that there isn’t a person out there feeling sorry for him.

The only thing feel sorry about is the fact that Mayhem is losing control of his life and that he hasn’t received the medical attention that he needs to get better.
