CB Dollaway talks TUF, Rampage and more

CB Dollaway talks about his TUF experience, working with Rampage and more...


On working with Rampage...

"Rampage as a fighter is basically 100% excitement. You watch that guyís fight and you never know whatís going to happen. You donít know if heís going to pick some guy up and slam them off of their head or knock them out. Heís for sure a game dog and he puts on a show for the fans. Itís a little crazy working side by side with the 205 pound champ. Actually, getting in there rolling around with him and getting to spar with him was a great opportunity."

Hardest part about being on the show...

"The 6 weeks away and really just not talking to anybody. Youíre living with 16 strangers to where youíre used to your teammates, who youíve known for awhile, and working with your own trainers. Itís like a new experience and you have to deal with guys that, per say, outside of the house, you may not hang out with them if you get my drift. You have to keep a cool head because obviously any fights will get you thrown out. You just have to get along with people the best you can."

On having to fight his way on the show...

"Yeah, that was pretty weird. I showed up there hoping that I would be one of the first fights so I came ready to fight, but I was thinking I would have a little bit more time, like possibly 3 or 4 days in the house, before anything major would take place. I get there and you see 32 guys walk in and you know something is up. Then Dana White walks in and tells you, ďyouíre fighting in 48 hours, get ready.Ē The thought of going home was the worst possible scenario and I wasnít going to let that happen."

"They told us to show up there at 190. Right when we flew in, they took us right to the scales and that kind of had me concerned that something was possibly going on so I didnít go out and eat a whole bunch or gorge myself. I kind of played it cool until I knew what was going on and that was a smart move obviously. One guy was 17 pounds over. He obviously wasnít thinking and went out and chowed down. I had the feeling something was up."

Here's the rest:
