A middleweight matchup between alums from The Ultimate Fighter reality television series has been added to the undercard for UFC 100, set to take place on July 11 and emanate from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

According to a report first seen on MMAjunkie.com, former NCAA amateur wrestling standout C.B. Dollaway, 8-1, and former professional wrestler Tom Lawlor, 5-1, have signed to face each other during the historic event.

Dollaway was a replacement middleweight finalist during the seventh season of TUF. Despite being considered one of the favorites to win the show, Dollaway was upset in the semifinals after being submitted by Amir Sadollah.

Dollaway was given a second chance at Sadollah during the final at the live season finale this past June. Jesse Taylor had been set to face Sadollah in the finals but was dismissed from the show due to unprofessional conduct. A new semifinal matchup between Dollaway and and Tim Credeur was scheduled.

Despite beating Credeur and earning a rematch against Sadollah in the finals, Dollaway was once again submitted in almost the exact same fashion he had been during the semifinals.

Since his disappointing run on TUF, the Arizona Combat Sports product has rebounded to win back-to-back fights at UFC Fight Night 14 and UFC 92 against Taylor and Mike Massenzio, respectively.

Lawlor just recently competed during the eighth season of TUF and was victorious in a light heavyweight bout during the live season finale this past December, defeating Kyle Kingsbury via unanimous decision.

The bout vs. Dollaway will mark Lawlor’s first at middleweight.

In addition to Dollaway vs. Lawlor, main card bouts for UFC 100 will include Georges St. Pierre vs. Thiago Alves for the UFC welterweight title along with rival TUF 9 coaches Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson going head-to-head in a middleweight bout.

Also, a heavyweight title unfication bout between UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and interim UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir could headline the event, pending the condition of Mir’s surgically repaired knee.
