Jason “Mayhem” Miller (24-8 MMA, 0-2 UFC) has been given a second chance in the UFC as he will now look to fight C.B. Dollaway (11-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC) at UFC 146. The card will take place MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 26 with headliners Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem according to sources close to the card.
Following a layoff in MMA due to Strikeforce promotions inactivity for ‘Mayhem,’ Jason sat on the shelf even longer as he opted to replace Chael Sonnen on “The Ultimate Fighter 14” as a coach against Michael Bisping. With 15 months of ring rust, Miller looked weary early in his UFC return against Bisping. Following the bout UFC president Dana White had said that he was unsure that they would have the Strikeforce import back against.
C.B. Dollaway, the “TUF” season 7 runner-up has had an up and down career as of late. After peeling off three straight victories, the Arizona wrestler fell short with back-to-back losses to Mark Munoz and Jared Hamman in 2011.
