Mixed Martial Arts Career
The Ultimate Fighter
C.B. Dollaway appeared on the seventh season of the reality television series, The Ultimate Fighter, titled The Ultimate Fighter 7: Team Jackson vs. Team Griffin. He earned a spot on the show when he defeated David Baggett by TKO.
Quinton Jackson won the initial coin toss and decided to pick the first fighter, which ended up being Dollaway. Dollaway did not have his first fight until the last preliminary fight, going up against Nick Klein. Dollaway defeated Klein by Guillotine Choke in the second round.
Dollaway then went on to fight Cale Yarbrough in the quarter-finals. Dollaway won the fight by TKO in the first round. C.B.'s next opponent was the future winner of the show Amir Sadollah, where Sadollah won by an Armbar submission in the third round.
After Jesse Taylor was forced out of the show, Dana White needed someone to fight Sadollah in the finale. Dollaway and Tim Credeur fought to see who would be in the finale. After three rounds, Dollaway won by unanimous decision. Sadollah defeated C.B. for the second time by Armbar to win the show.
Dollaway was on the show The Ultimate Fighter 7: Team Jackson vs. Team Griffin where he got runner-up, losing to Amir Sadollah at the The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale. He was offered a fight against fighter Jesse Taylor at UFC: Silva vs. Irvin where he won by Peruvian Necktie in the first round. This was the first time in UFC history this submission was successfully used, and earned Dollaway the Submission of the Night Honors.
At UFC 92, Dollaway returned to action against Mike Massenzio, a fighter who he had formerly defeated in his Junior College wrestling career. Dollaway defeated Massenzio by TKO due to punches at 3:01 of the first round. After being stunned by Massenzio's punch and nearly being caught in a Guillotine Choke, Dollaway secured top position, took Massenzio's back and punished his opponent with punches until the referee halted the bout.
Dollaway returned to the UFC on September 16, 2009 at UFC Fight Night 19 against UFC newcomer Jay Silva, and training parter of Quinton Jackson. He was first supposed to fight Ed Herman, but Herman was injured and replaced by Dan Miller, then Miller was forced off the card due to infection, so he was replaced by Silva. Dollaway showed an impressive chin, taking shots from Silva, but ultimately using his superior wrestling to earn himself a unanimous decision victory.
Dollaway next faced off against Goran Reljic on February 20, 2010 at UFC 110: Nogueira vs. Velasquez. Reljic was making his middleweight debut, and hadn't fought since a light heavyweight bout in 2008. Dollaway was able to work the fight to the floor multiple times throughout the 15-minute affair. And while both had their moments in the standup game, it was Dollaway's control of the positioning that scores points as the bout carried on. With the bout close heading into the third frame, Dollaway again flexed his wrestling advantage. Reljic briefly reversed the position and attacked from the top, but Dollaway quickly re-established himself in a dominant position and took the Decision (Unanimous).
After winning his most high-profile fight to date, it was learned that Dollaway, along with team-mates Ryan Bader and Aaron Simpson left Arizona Combat Sports. The reasoning at the time was unkonwn, but former team-mate Jamie Varner had this to say:
- "I've been at AZ Combat for 6 years now this gym builds fighters from the ground up! None of those guys would be where they are without their training partners and the Lallys! Some douche bags like to talk shit but our gym is battle tested and proven! When Riggs left he started losing and got cut from the UFC. When Fickett got kicked out he started losing and got kicked out of the UFC! I’m very interested to see what happens with those guys I wish them nothing but the best in there careers, but they made a HUGE mistake!"
In the end it was learned that the trio left Arizona Combat Sports because they felt they had learned all they could, and had moved to Lion's Den in Scottsdale, Arizona, and would be opening their own place in the near future.
His first fight since leaving Arizona Combat Sports took place on September 25, 2010 at UFC 119: Mir vs. Cro Cop, where he faced off against Joe Doerksen. After a patient start from both, Doerksen latched hold of a Dollaway kick and shoved him to the mat. But as Dollaway fell, he grabbed an arm-in guillotine and fell to his back. From there, the action stalled with Doerksen trapped and Dollaway refusing to exert himself any more than necessary. After several tense seconds, it became obvious that the choke was not going to work. As Dollaway looked to adjust, Doerksen alertly rolled to escape. The ensuing scramble saw an intense series of rolls with one fighter looking for freedom and the other hanging onto the neck. When the dust settled, it was Dollaway that was in control. Dollaway kept control of the choke while removing the obstruction of Doerksen's arm, and Doerksen had no choice to tap as his opponent wrenched his neck. The win earned Dollaway the Submission of the Night Honors.
