The coach of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 14 and the runner-up of “TUF 7” will lock horns at UFC 146.

UFC officials confirmed Sunday that middleweights Jason “Mayhem” Miller and C.B. Dollaway have verbally agreed to a bout on the May 26 card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The Memorial Day weekend pay-per-view event is expected to be topped by a heavyweight title tilt between Brazilian champ Junior dos Santos and Dutch challenger Alistair Overeem.

Miller, 31, comes off a December loss to rival “TUF” coach Michael Bisping which saw the “Bully Beatdown” host halted by knees and punches in the third round. The defeat snapped a two-fight winning streak for the former Strikeforce and Dream contender, who has never lost back-to-back bouts in more than 10 years as a pro.

His opponent, the 28-year-old “Doberman,” will look to halt the first losing skid of his career, having been punched out by Mark Munoz and Jared Hamman in 2011. Dollaway holds a 5-4 UFC record and last tasted victory in the Octagon when he submitted Joe Doerksen in September 2010.
