Dollaway Blog: The Ultimate Fighter 7 And More

C.B. Dollaway

If you watched The Ultimate Fighter 7 finale, then you more than likely witnessed the fight between C.B. Dollaway and Amir Sadollah– you know, the one where Dollaway “tapped”.  Thanks to the folks at MMAJunkie.com, there’s a blog written by Dollaway himself which deals with life under the microscope of TUF and a ton of other subject matter.  Below is just a small sampling of his thoughts:

If you have ever experienced shock, you likely understand how I was feeling post fight and continue to feel.

While I know I lost and have come to grips with how I lost, I am still struggling with my post-fight reaction. I have watched great fighters like Phil Baroni punch the referee for a bad stoppage, and I sat on my couch and asked myself what was he thinking. I now understand exactly what he was thinking — or should I say, not thinking. I can also now understand my teammate Gerald Harris’s (now at Arizona Combat Sports) post-fight meltdown.

You are immediately faced with all the people that supported you and your fans, and in your heart, you know you just let them all down. The crowd has gone blurry, and you can’t remember the sequence of events that just transpired, but you can clearly see all the sacrifices you made and how they were all for nothing.

The hard work, time away from family and friends, and the six-figure contract are all gone. Dana White, the second chance, my trainers, teammates all either let down or squandered. All of these thoughts from the second Herb Dean stepped in until probably when Herb raised Amir’s hand.
