CB Dolloway = Over-hyped

C.B was supposed to be this "wrecking machine", and it turns out that he ain't really all that good. His Lay-and-Pray style is boring as hell to watch, and to make matters worse, he thinks that in every fight he takes, his opponent is the "under-dog".

I hope Amir smashes him good this coming Saturday.
Who's with me!?!

Anyone with half a jitz game would submit him. And please no one bring up Tim Crueder, he as well as CB didn't live up to his hype.

You're just a cook...

I could tell he overhyped after his first fight. No doubt he is a decent fighter but there is a lot of room for improvement.

C.B. Showed Great wrestling and some real solid stand up at times.
He needs a gas tank obviously but he has a very bright future.

I'm not sure why you are calling what he was doing LnP but w/e.

For me it was when he fought Cale. I was like really man? They said he was the best on Rampages team and he looked more than half shitty against Cale who was on the lower tier of Forrests team IMO and i was like if he is really having issues with Cale then I don't think he is all that he's cracked up to be.

I do however think its absolute BS that Amir should have to fight him again. But like Dana said I can only see Amir getting better and sharpening his game we arn't going to see any major changes in CB though because he is a wrestler through and through. IMO Amir takes the Finale by KO or CB blankets his way to a decision.

Im just praying Amir works on the sprawl though he is great at maintaining guard once on the ground.

Two fighters exposed CB for three things, first his chin is not granite more like pine, possibly cottonwood. Second, his cardio could use some work. Third, he kicks like an effin mule.

I mean, coming into this show, CB was known for his wrestling, and he proved how good is wrestling was. He was able to take Amir down with little-to-no gas left in the tank. Everyone expected CB to come in and GnP his way to the finale, which he almost did flawlessly, had it not been for that swank armbar Amir pulled off!!

I never realized how bad CB's standup was until the fight with Amir, and then his fight with Tim C. He sort of ducks his head and swings, and the guy has a glass jaw, big time. It's obvious his cardio wasn't where it should've been, and I really hope that he worked on it between the finishing of the show and the finale.

I think this is a difficult fight to judge CB's abilities. They both came in not knowing they were supposed to fight. There was no weigh in or weight cutting so its possible there could have been a 10lb advantage for one of them, either one of them could have been up late the night before, etc......
