Unranked UFC middleweight CB “The Doberman” Dollaway came into last night’s (Sun., March 23, 2014) UFC Fight Night 38 co-main event bout against TUF: Brazil 1 winner Cezar Ferreira with wins in two out his last three fights. His only loss in that span was a very controversial split decision to Tim Boetsch.
He was still the underdog against “Mutante,” the Vitor Belfort-trained monster who was an undefeated 3-0 in UFC. In the fight video highlights from FOX Sports above, you can see that Ferreira fought like he knew was undefeated, rushing in with wild punches and a lack of respect for Dollaway’s striking power.
“The Doberman” made him pay, knocking out the Brazilian in a mere 39 seconds to pick up even more momentum. All of the sudden, the previously inconsistent Dollaway may be beginning to live up to his lofty potential as a former NCAA Division I All-American wrestler.
In a stacked UFC middleweight division, is Dollaway ready for a huge fight?
