Thread: Lyoto Machida vs. CB Dollaway Likely For Fight Night Brazil Card in December

  1. Default Lyoto Machida vs. CB Dollaway Likely For Fight Night Brazil Card in December

    http://www.cagepotato.com/lyoto-mach...d-in-december/



    Following back-to-back KO losses at the hands of Mark Munoz and Jared Hamman in 2011, it looked as if the book was about to close on the UFC career of TUF 7 finalist CB Dollaway. “The Doberman” had provided fans with some memorable highlights — most notably, his peruvian necktie finish of fellow TUF 7 alum Jesse Taylor — but the pair of losses had dropped his promotional record to just above .500, and lets just say that nobody was talking about “CB Dollaway: Future Champion” around the water cooler*.

    But then, he was booked against Jason Miller in a “loser leaves town” match for both fighters, and whatever pieces of Mayhem’s soul that Michael Bisping *didn’t* steal, Dollaway did. The win kicked off something of a career revitalization for Launchpad Dollaway, who has notched 4 victories alongside just one defeat in the time since, including an impressive first round KO of TUF Brazil winner Cezar Ferreira and a decision over the highly-touted Francis Carmont.

    And now, it looks like Dollaway will be getting the big name he deserves, as UFC Tonight tweeted yesterday that he is being considered for a bout with former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida. The fight would likely serve as the headliner for the UFC’s return to Brazil in December, on a TBD Fight Night card transpiring on the 20th from the Ginásio José Corrêa in Barueri, Brazil.

    Machida, as we all know, last battled Chris Weidman in an uncharacteristically gritty performance at UFC 175 that saw him come up short by way of unanimous decision. While the fight against Weidman has yet to be confirmed, we will keep you updated on this matchup as details are made available.

    This matchup just doesn't even seem fair.

    While I usually want the underdog to win, I want Machida to push him back down the ladder.

    RIP CB. Should be similar to Mendes vs McKenzie.

    Machida by murder. Seriously though can't wait for Machida to beat Dolloway and his stupid face into oblivion.

    Cb is a good fighter and on a good run, but this is not a good fight for him. Don't like them wasting a machida fight.

    Think of it as a showcase fight Miz. It will make a nice addition to machidas highlight reel.
