Hosts Darren McFarland and Chris Pappas returned to the 102.5 FM radio airwaves this week with special guest UFC middleweight C.B. Dollaway (12-4). A finalist on season 7 of The Ultimate Fighter reality show, Dollaway has amassed a 6-4 record inside the Octagon.
Dollaway discussed his upcoming bout with TUF Brazil finalist Daniel Sarafian (7-2) which is scheduled to take place January 19 at UFC on FX 7 in Sao Paulo. Dollaway shared his thoughts on facing another Ultimate Fighter finalist, fighting Sarafian in his home country of Brazil and the difference of competing against someone on The Ultimate Fighter compared to fighting on a pay-per-view card.
Dollaway also talked about his time on The Ultimate Fighter and training under Team Rampage, a potential rematch with Amir Sadollah, why Wanderlei Silva is his favorite fighter to watch and how it felt to be the one to reitre Jason “Mayhem” Miller.
In addition to talking with Dollaway, the guys took phone calls from listeners, discussed Ronda Rousey headlining UFC 157 versus Liz Carmouche, reviewed last week’s TUF 16 Finale card headlined by Roy Nelson vs. Matt Mitrione and much more. The guys also spoke with ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com) Founder/Editor Jack Bratcher about Rousey’s pay-per-view drawing power, what changed Dana White’s mind about women’s MMA, TUF 16 winner Colton Smith and mroe.
