Jared Hamman was winning Fight of the Night bonuses at light heavyweight, but he wasn't always winning the fight itself. A 1-2 record in his first three fights at 205 led to a change in divisions for Hamman, who will be moving down to middleweight for the first time in his career at UFC on Versus 5 on August 11th in Milwaukee. And his opponent will be TUF veteran and UFC mainstay C.B. Dollaway. From UFC.com:
After back-to-back Fight of the Night awards, Jared Hamman will test the waters at 185 pounds this August 14th against former Ultimate Fighter finalist CB Dollaway.
"Two time Fight of the Night winner Jared ‘The Messenger’ Hamman has verbally agreed to face two time Submission of the Night winner CB ‘The Doberman’ Dollaway in his middleweight debut August 14 in Milwaukee," said UFC President Dana White.
Hamman, who trains with Vladimir Matyushenko at his VMAT gym, has never been submitted in his career while his opponent has picked up two Submission of the Night bonuses in his UFC career.
Jared "The Messenger" Hamman (11-3)
Loss Kyle Kingsbury - Decision (Unanimous) UFC Fight Night 22
Win Rodney Wallace - Decision (Unanimous) UFC 111
Loss Alexander Gustafsson - KO (Punches) UFC 105
CB via murder. No offence to Hamman, but he has nothing and I mean NOTHING to offer CB in this fight. Plus he will be cutting to middleweight for the first time so is likely to be more fatigued than he'd want, which is just suicide against somebody with CB's skillset. The Doberman will tear chunks out of this lad's neck this august, watch. Come on, CB. End this one quickly and lets erase memories of that so called 'ko' Munoz gave you.
Hope Mario doesn't ref this one too.
