Jason “Mayhem” Miller is going to get another shot in the UFC.
The UFC announced today that Mayhem will take on CB Dollaway at UFC 146 following what Dana White deemed to be an awful performance against Michael Bisping at the TUF 14 Finale.
UFC president Dana White today confirmed the first fight – one between fan favorites – officially set for UFC 146, set to take place over Memorial Day weekend.
“Ultimate Fighter runner-up C.B. ‘The Doberman’ Dollaway has verbally agreed to face recent Ultimate Fighter coach Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller in a middleweight bout at UFC 146 this May in Las Vegas,” he said.
This could very well be a loser leaves town match. Dollaway is coming off back-to-back losses and well, we all know how Dana felt about Mayhem’s last performance. Mayhem’s overwhelming fan support is probably the only reason he still has a job in the UFC, but that will only take him so far. They both need this win and they both need it pretty bad.
UFC 146 will take place on Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas and is expected to feature a heavyweight championship bout between champion Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem.
