We reported yesterday that the Jason “Mayhem” Miller vs. C.B. Dollaway bout was in the works, but that was prior to the UFC making it official. Now the UFC has announced the bout and the Miller vs. Dollaway scrap is on.
UFC officials announced the bout late yesterday evening.
UFC 146 is set to take place on in May’s UFC 146 event set to take place in Las Vegas Nevada’s MGM Grand Garden Arena. In the main event UFC heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos will attempt to defend his title against Alistair Overeem.
After a successful international run, Jason “Mayhem” Miller graced television audiences with his loud and boisterous personality on “The Bully Beatdown” reality show on MTV. Now a household name he re-entered the UFC after a lengthy absence that saw him compete across the globe for the liked of DREAM and Strikeforce.
Upon his return he would be selected as “The Ultimate Fighter” coach opposite Michael Bisping but he fell short in his finale bout with his coaching counterpart and put his job on the line in the process. He now gets a second chance to prove he belongs.
Dollaway on the other hand will return after nearly a nine-month absence. The “Ultimate Fighter 7” runner up entered the UFC winning five of six fights but has since fallen short to the likes of Jared Hamman and Mark Munoz. (Continue to page 2 for the “Editors Breakdown”)
