TKO (Retirement)

      These guys traded a few strikes, Dollaway was moving forward, and then he clinched and threw Murtazaliev down a minute into the round, but Murtazaliev quickly scrambled around to show that his wrestling skills are similar to Dollaway's, so they reset 2 minutes into the round, and then Murtazaliev hurt Dollaway with a hard kick to the body. He then took down Dollaway, and pinned him against the fence, where Dollaway tried to catch him in a guillotine choke. Murtazaliev popped his head free with 2 minutes left in the round, and quickly passed to side control. Murtazaliev finished the round pinning Dollaway against the fence, where he beat him down with some heavy punches. Round one goes to Murtazaliev.
     Murtazaliev blasted Dollaway with a brutal spinning back kick early in the second round, and then Dollaway grabbed him and threw him to the ground. Dollaway tried to setup a slick choke, but Murtazaliev was able to roll out of it, and he ended up on top, pinning Dollaway against the fence halfway through the round. Dollaway tried to roll out of the bottom, but Murtazaliev grabbed the fence to stay in full mount (which the referee warned him for). Dollaway almost scrambled back to his feet with 90 seconds left in the round, but Murtazaliev was able to bully him back to the ground, where he beat the shit out of him with big punches & elbows. The fight should have been stopped several times, but Herb Dean just stood there and watched Murtazaliev as he tried to murder Dollaway. The fight 100% should have been stopped, but he let it go until the end of the round, at which point, Dollaway said he didn't want to continue. That was a really strong performance by Khalid Murtazaliev in his UFC debut.

DQ (Late KO Punch)
5:00
      The first round was pretty slow paced, with Dollaway circling around Lombard, while picking him apart with a lot of kicks. Lombard had a few moments where he threw some big combinations, but for the most part, Dollaway seemed to be in control, and he was picking apart Lombard with his boxing, as well as all of those leg kicks to keep Lombard at distance. The buzzer sounded, Lombard blasted him with a couple of massive punches, and basically knocked Dollaway the fuck out after the buzzer sounded. C.B. Dollaway wins, by getting knocked the fuck out, via disqualification. That's pretty much the worst way to win a fight, and it's also another "weird fluke" situation, involving C.B. Dollaway, as he returns from a back injury caused by a hotel elevator collapsing. He has to be one of the unluckiest fighters I've ever seen.

      Herman started this fight with a massive right hand that rocked Dollaway, but then he clinched, and Dollaway beat him up with some big knees to the body, and then Dollaway threw Herman to the ground, and worked some ground & pound, while Herman tried to find an armbar from his guard. Dollaway continued to grind all over Herman, while Herman tried to figure out a way to get back to his feet. Dollaway cranked on a Kimura while sitting on Herman's face with around 90 seconds left in the round, but that didn't work out, so Herman was able to use that moment to sort of scramble to his knees, but Dollaway did a good job keeping top control, while pressing Herman against the fence. Herman stood up with 30 seconds left in the round, but Dollaway just took him back down again. Round one clearly goes to Dollaway.
     Dollaway threw an early head kick to start the second round, and then Herman dropped him with a big right hand, but Dollaway stood back up and they reset one minute into the round. They traded a few more sloppy strikes, and then Herman dropped Dollaway again with some wild punches. He then jumped down into half mount, and continued to grind on Dollaway for a while. Dollaway cranked on a random heel hook, but Herman was somehow able to scramble free, and then he pinned Dollaway again, for some more ground & pound. Herman finished the round by chopping up Dollaway's face with some hard elbows. Round two clearly goes to Herman, and I have this fight all tied up going into the final round.
     Dollaway started the final round with a quick takedown, and Herman caught him in a loose guillotine choke. Herman cranked on a Kimura, and used that to sweep Dollaway, but Dollaway somehow held onto top position, resecuring half mount after basically doing a flip. Dollaway then tried to setup a Kimura of his own, but gave up on that, in favor of dropping some elbows on Herman's jaw. Dollaway spent the rest of the round beating the shit out of Herman with brutal elbows. Herman dropped back with one final submission attempt (kneebar) with 30 seconds left in the fight, but that didn't work out, so Dollaway should coast on to a solid 29-28 decision. All 3 judges agreed, giving Dollaway his first win in 3 years.

KO (Punch)
5:28
      Marquardt was chopping away at Dollaway's legs in the first round, until Dollaway rocked Marquardt with a big punch, but he wasn't able to follow it up with much. Marquardt rocked Dollaway later in the round. That round was kind of slow paced, but had a few decent exchanges, and could have probably been scored for either fighter. The second round started up with some decent striking exchanges, and then Dollaway moved in, and Marquardt knocked him the fuck out with a slick right hand counter. Really important win for Nate Marquardt who lost his previous 2 fights, and now he put Dollaway in a position where he's on a 3 fight losing streak. Decent fight overall, and GREAT win for Marquardt.

Decision

      This was the first REALLY significant fight on the card in my opinion. The first round was close, until near the end, when Dollaway knocked Bisping on his ass, and almost finished him with ground & pound, but Bisping somehow survived, and then made a comeback at the end of the round, beating up Dollaway. Really, I thought it was a close round, so I scored that one a draw. The second round I gave to Bisping, even though it wasn't an ultra exciting round, there were a few moments where Bisping put a hurtin' on Dollaway with punches while standing. The third round also goes to Bisping, for beating up Dollaway on the feet, almost finishing him a few times, and near the end of the fight, Bisping was on top beating up Dollaway on the ground. So yeah, I'd definitely give this fight to Bisping, maybe 30-28. All 3 judges scored it 29-28, giving Bisping the win via unanimous decision.

TKO (Kick to the Body & Punches)

      OH SHIT! That was fucking brutal. This fight started out decent, some sharp kicks by both guys, but once Machida REALLY unloaded, he launched an INSANE kick to the stomach, causing Dollaway to collapse by the cage, where Machida was able to rip his head off with brutal punches, until the referee was forced to stop the fight. That was fucking insane. Lyoto Machida is scary as fuck.

Decision
15:00
      This was a VERY close fight, between a couple of top contenders at 185, so awesome matchup. I thought overall, Francis Carmont landed more HARD strikes, and left Dollaway looking pretty bloody (not 100% sure where that cut came from though). Dollaway on the other hand, almost knocked out Carmont in the first round, by clipping him with a nice punch, so I gave the first round SLIGHTLY to Dollaway. The second round I gave to Carmont, even though Dollaway controlled the wrestling, Carmont did more "damage" with his submission attempts, going for a couple of kimuras. The third round was 100% Dollaway, wrestling Carmont to the ground, and eventually getting full mount and dropping some hard elbows. Great fight, both guys looked tough, I gave it SLIGHTLY to Dollaway, all 3 judges agreed. Really good performance by both fighters.

      BANG BANG! These guys both came out swinging, Ferreira threw a nice kick towards Dollaway's head, and after they got up against the cage for a second, Dollaway launched a hook that knocked Ferreira to the ground, Dollaway jumped on him, unleashed some brutal ground & pound, and the referee stopped the fight. Great win for Dollaway against a guy that was climbing the ranks pretty quickly at 185.

Decision (Split)
15:00
      This was one hell of a brawl! To be honest, starting out, I had C.B. Dollaway winning the first two rounds, his striking looked crisp, he was aggressive, and he showed good grappling too. After two BRUTAL eye pokes in the third round though, a point was taken away from C.B. Dollaway due to the fouls, and Boetsch proceeded to kick Dollaway's ass for the entire third round. In the end, I believe this fight was PROBABLY a draw due to the way the UFC scores things, but I wanted Boetsch to win, and he did, so I'm 100% happy. I can't help but feel weird about the judge that tried to give all 3 rounds to Dollaway though.

Decision (Split)
15:00
      Yikes! The Brazilian fans are brutal. I had mixed feelings about the decision results on this fight, since I technically gave Dollaway 2 of the 3 rounds, but I thought that Sarafian's dominance in the first round, was noteworthy enough to give him the win, especially considering how close the third round was. Still, pretty good fight overall, both guys literally gave it their all, and I look forward to seeing them both fight again in the future.

Decision

      Fuck, I really don't like C.B. Dollaway. I was pushing for Miller HARDCORE in this fight, and he almost knocked out Dollaway a couple of times, but it looked like Miller's knee was jacked, and he wasn't able to defend very well against Dollaway's defensive wrestling, so in the end, Dollaway held Miller down on the ground for the majority of the fight, and kind of kicked his ass, but Dollaways' strikes (both standing & on the ground) looked pretty weak. Miller looked solid! He just, needs to learn to defend the takedown. Dollaway wins via unanimous decision.

      OH MAN! This fight was fucking awesome. Dollaway fought his ass off, taking Hamman to the ground in the first round, and beating him up pretty badly, even locking on an arm-triangle choke, that I was shocked Hamman was able to escape. The second round was 100% Hamman though, as he FUCKING DESTROYED Dollaway on the feet, with wild Wanderlei Silva style punches, followed by some BRUTAL ground & pound, for almost the entire round, until eventually the referee had seen enough, as Dollaway was beaten half to death by Hamman's brutality. This had to be the best performance of Hamman's career.

      That was quick! I had both of these guys ranked pretty highly going into this fight, but Munoz beat Dollaway's ass in under a minute. This fight basically consisted of Dollaway going for a choke, Munoz escaped, Munoz punched him, and punched him again, Dollaway was rocked, went to the ground, Munoz continued to hammerfist him, until the referee stopped the fight. The crowd clearly thought it was an early stoppage, and it might have been? But still, Munoz looked solid here, and definitely would have done some damage if the fight would have continued.

Submission (Guillotine Choke)
2:13
      This was a pretty badass submission win for C.B. Dollaway. The fight started with both guys throwing some basic strikes, Doerksen caught a kick, and tried to take Dollaway to the ground, Dollaway transitioned into a guillotine choke, after they rolled around like wild animals for a minute or so (Dollaway never letting go of the choke), he eventually locked it on so tight that I thought Doerksen's head was going to pop off. C.B. Dollaway is a bad bad man!

Decision
15:00
      This was a pretty great fight. Goran Reljic looked awesome in the first round, kicking the living shit out of Dollaway, and it looked like her hurt his legs pretty badly, so Reljic won that round. The second round, Dollaway took the fight to the ground, beat up Reljic, and won the round. The third round was very close, and Reljic went for a couple of submission attempts, but Dollaway did a good job defending them (including escape a Kimura by blatantly grabbing the cage, which was kind of fucked up). But yeah, overall, great fight. I gave the fight to Dollaway, 29-28, and all 3 judges agreed.

Decision
15:00
      Jay Silva looked pretty awesome in this fight, attacking Dollaway like a bat out of hell, throwing fast & hard punches, kicks, flying knees, all kinds of crazy shit, BUT... Dollaway was able to take him to the ground and control him for the first two rounds, winning both of those rounds, even though technically, Silva did WAY more damage. The third round, Silva looked like a fucking BEAST, and Dollaway looked like he was unconscious for most of the third round, so under Pride rules, Silva definitely would have dominated this fight, but under UFC rules, Dollaway was able to steal the decision, by staying in top position for most of the fight, and slowing down the pace enough to survive for 15 minutes. Jay Silva was a blast to watch though. Once the fight was over, Dollaway was laying on the ground, a bloody mess, and Silva looked like he was ready to fight another round, but Dollaway still got the decision, which makes me hate their scoring system. It's also worth noting, Dollaway's left eye had the entire top eyebrow hanging off his face, it was fucking disgusting. Silva nearly killed him.

Technical Submission (Guillotine Choke)
0:55
      This really wasn't a very "good" fight at all. C.B. Dollaway (who I happen to not like) started the fight with a failed takedown attempt, hurdling his neck directly into the arms of Tom Lawlor. Lawlor of course did what any sane human being would do, he locked on a tight guillotine choke, Dollaway fell asleep, and BAM... Fight is over in 55 seconds of the first round. Awesome result, but similar to the first fight of the night, not much to really say about it.

      This was another grudge match, between two guys that I don't really care about. Mike Massenzio seemed like an interesting fighter from the submission perspective, but CB Dollaway defeated him in college, and he defeated him in the octagon again. CB Dollaway wins by mounting Massenzio's back, and punching him in the head, ending the fight via TKO.

Submission (Peruvian Necktie)
3:58
      Well then, two guys that I really dislike, got in the ring, and put on a pretty good fight to start off the live broadcast... The fight started with both guys swinging with some decent punch combos, both guys displayed pretty solid wrestling skills, Dollaway seemed to have the upperhand with the submissions for the most part, but Taylor didn't seem too worried about that... Well, he should have been more concerned, because out of nowhere, CB Dollaway locked on the Peruvian Neck-Tie (first time I've ever seen the movie) and it was pretty aweesome, almost ripping Taylor's head off... Good show by Dollaway, and Taylor looked alright too for the most part...

Submission (Armbar)
3:02
      AW YEAH!!! I really disliked CB Dollaway during the season, and I was blown away when Sadollah finished him with an armbar during the season... Well, since Jesse Taylor got kicked off the show, CB Dollaway took his place in the finals, to get a quick rematch with Sadollah, AND LOST AGAIN DUE TO THE EXACT SAME ARMBAR!!! Amir Sadollah is the man, CB Dollaway still gets on my nerves, and I'm extremely happy that Amir Sadollah is this season's Ultimate Fighter... AWESOME!!!

Decision

      These guys both spent the first round trading some really hard punches & leg kicks. Credeur dropped Dollaway with a minute left in the round, but when he jumped on him, Dollaway quickly wrestled his way into top position, and landed some big punches. Credeur scrambled around, and stood up with 30 seconds left. Dollaway landed a big punch, and then took down Credeur to finish the round. That round could go either way.
      These guys traded some strikes to start the second round, and then Credeur slipped, as Dollaway punched him, so it LOOKED like a knockdown, but I don't think it was. Credeur laid down for a few, while Dollaway stood above him, throwing some leg kicks. They eventually stood up, and Dollaway unloaded on Credeur, rocking the shit out of him, and nearly getting the TKO stoppage, while punishing Credeur with some wild punches, as Credeur just turtled up against the fence. The referee let them continue though, so Credeur stood back up, and Dollaway was a bit winded. Credeur then unloaded with some big punches as Dollaway tried to catch his breath, and then Dollaway fired back with some bombs. That was a pretty crazy back & forth round, but I scored it for Dollaway, since he nearly finished Credeur.
      Dollaway rocked Credeur early in the final round with some big punches, and then he took him down 20 seconds into the round, but quickly let him back up. They traded a few more tired strikes, and then Dollaway scored another takedown halfway through the round. They stood back up 30 seconds later. Credeur laid down for a while, and Dollaway stood above him while throwing kicks, while they both mostly just rested. Credeur popped back up with a minute left in the fight, only to get taken down again. I scored this fight 30-28 for C.B. Dollaway. All 3 judges basically agreed, giving him the unanimous decision victory.

Submission (Armbar)
12:52
     These guys traded a few random strikes, they traded some knees from the clinch, and then Dollaway slammed Sadollah 30 seconds into the opening round, landing inside his guard. Dollaway spent most of the round beating up Sadollah on the ground, but Sadollah was finally able to stand back up with 2 minutes left in the round. He landed some solid strikes, and then Dollaway took him down again. Dollaway spent the final 10 seconds or so on top, in full mount, beating up Sadollah. Round one should go to Dollaway.
     Sadollah started the second round by beating up Dollaway on the feet with some punches, and then he dropped him with a front kick to the body, but Dollaway quickly turned that into another takedown, allowing Dollaway to secure half mount, where he worked some more ground & pound. Dollaway threw some big elbows, and cut Sadollah's left eye. Sadollah then threw up an armbar, but Dollaway was able to roll out of it, so he continued to work some more ground & pound. The referee stood them up with a minute left in the round, Sadollah landed some solid strikes, and then Dollaway took him down again. I have Dollaway ahead 20-18 going into the third round.
     The final round started with Dollaway taking Sadollah to the ground again, one minute into the round, and this time he landed in full mount. Sadollah gave up his back, and Dollaway started to setup a rear-naked choke. Sadollah was able to scramble out of that, he rolled around for a few seconds, and locked on an inverted triangle choke. Dollaway tried to pass that, so Sadollah tried to setup an ankle lock. Dollaway continued to hold a variety of top positions, while Sadollah was attempting all kinds of submissions from his guard. Sadollah slapped on an armbar seemingly out of nowhere with around 2 minutes left in the round, and Dollaway was forced to submit. That was a great fight overall, and a fantastic comeback for Sadollah in those last few seconds of scrambling.

TKO (Punches)

      Dollaway scored a takedown 30 seconds into the first round, and smothered Yarbrough against the fence, where he worked some ground & pound. He dropped some heavy elbows from the mounted crucifix, and the referee warned him for hitting Yarbrough in the back of the head. Dollaway took back control, and continued to pound on Yarbrough with big punches & elbows, while trying to find a rear-naked choke. Dollaway unloaded with a series of big right hands, and the referee warned Yarbrough that he had to defend himself, so Dollaway continued to unload, and the referee stopped the fight. That was another solid win for C.B. Dollaway.

Submission (Guillotine Choke)
7:44
      Dollaway threw a kick early, Klein caught it, and took him to the ground. Dollaway quickly scrambled to top position, and sort of took Klein's back as he turtled up, and Dollaway punched him in the head a lot, while they both scrambled around. Klein grabbed a kneebar, but Dollaway was able to scramble out of that, as he continued to punch Klein in the head, while Klein continued to turtle up. Klein spun around and quickly pulled guard, and slapped on an armbar from his back, but Dollaway was able to pound his way out of it. Dollaway continued to smother & beat up Klein from a variety of top positions for the rest of the round, leading to a clear round in the books for C.B. Dollaway, maybe even a 10-8 round, if it wasn't for Klein throwing up another armbar in the final seconds of the round.
     The second round started with both guys trading some leg kicks, and then Klein tried to pull guard for some ridiculous reason. They quickly went back to the position where Klein was turtling, and Dollaway was riding his back, while pounding his head with punches. Around the halfway mark, Klein rolled for another kneebar, failed miserably, Dollaway caught him in a guillotine choke, and finished the fight by submission. That was a fantastic one-sided performance by C.B. Dollaway.

      Dolloway started this fight with some leg kicks, some knees from the clinch, and then he flipped Baggett to the ground, where he unloaded with some big punches while pinning Baggett against the fence, and the referee was forced to stop the fight 90 seconds into the opening round. That was a solid debut for C.B. Dollaway.
