Pat Miletich vs. Mike Jackson – How Did We Get Here?

“However, the aftermath of that fight took an unexpected turn after Miletich attended the Trump rally in Washington DC on January 6th, 2021, in which Jackson wrote a contentious article accusing Miletich of racism due to his attendance and controversial photos that emerged from this event. The ensuing allegations led to Miletich’s departure from Legacy Fighting Championship (LFA) and a purported blacklisting from MMA commentating, fueling Miletich’s desire for payback.”— Nolan King (@mma_kings) July 24, 2023

A press release was issued detailing the history between Miletich and Jackson, as well as what led to this fight scheduled for the fall.
At one point, Mike Jackson linked up with Miletich to help him prepare for a UFC bout against CM Punk. The relationship between Jackson and Miletich soured after the UFC Hall of Famer was called out by Jackson for attending the Capitol Hill protests, which ended up being a riot. Miletich has insisted he wasn’t involved in nefarious activities, but he was fired from his commentary position with LFA over his presence.
