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