Dollaway vs Rivera @ UFC 92

"The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rampage vs. Team Forrest" runner-up C.B. Dollaway (7-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will likely return to action at UFC 92, an event that takes place Dec. 27 in Las Vegas.

A source close to the fighter told ( of the return date and that, though not signed, Dollaway could face veteran fighter Jorge Rivera (15-7 MMA, 4-5 UFC) at the year-end event.

Dollaway, who suffered his first professional loss to show winner Amir Sadollah at the show's live finale in June, returned to competition less than a month later to defeat Jesse Taylor at UFC Fight Night 14.

It was Dollaway's first official pro win in the UFC, and it also earned him a $25,000 Submission of the Night bonus for the tap-out (via Peruvian necktie).

Dollaway was actually a replacement for Taylor in the show's finale. Dollaway suffered a third-round submission loss to Sadollah in a semifinal fight and was knocked out of the competition. However, after Taylor (who had already secured his spot in the finale) was kicked off the show for a drunken Las Vegas rampage after the show wrapped, two fighters were given a second shot to take his place. Dollaway then defeated Tim Credeur for the spot.

Dollaway, a former All-American wrestler at Arizona State University (and "TUF" blogger for, has earned stoppage victories in six of his seven pro wins.

The 25-year-old could now meet Rivera, who's 11 years his elder. The 36-year-old turned pro in 2001, appeared on a special "comeback" season of "TUF" in 2006, and since then, he's 2-2 with a notable victory over Kendall Grove via first-round knockout.

Rivera, a devoted father of four who most recently suffered a submission loss to Martin Kampmann in June, hasn't fought since the death of his oldest daughter last month.
So who ya got

I have a feeling CB will take this fight. Rivera is way too unconsistent and I dont think he would be able to stop CB taking him down or submitting CB off his back. CB by decision.

CB by sub in the 2nd. If by chance CB does lose I can bet he won't be fighting for UFC again. Rivera will be overcome by CB.

Dollaway should take it.

On a side note, I still really appreciate the peruvian neck tie he put to Taylor.

I'm taking CB on this one. Yes he was a little to hyped up, but with more time.. i see him being really really good.

Peruvian Neck Tie for the win.

Damn dude, I really have no idea what happenend in that season of TUF. I thought Dollaway was the guy that won! I was thinking, why would they put the winner of TUF against Jorge?

I love Jorge Rivera. The guy is one of those loveable journeyman that you just want to see succeed. Seeing him put a one man gang **** on Kendall Grove was great. As Cabby put it, Jorge for the ****in' win.
