C.B. Dollaway picked up his second consecutive victory Saturday night, stunning the Brazilian faithful by earning a decision over Daniel Sarafian at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping. Now, the former Ultimate Fighter finalist is hoping 2013 brings him plenty more success.
“I’m just going to get back in the gym and get another fight,” said Dollaway, during the post-fight show on Fuel TV. “I want to get three-or-four fights this year and get my way into the Top-10.”
Dollaway (13-4) scored a decision victory over Jason “Mayhem” Miller in 2012, snapping a two-fight losing skid. The former Arizona State University wrestler has competed inside the Octagon since appearing on TUF in 2008, going 7-4.
After having trouble dealing with Sarafian’s power in the opening round, Dollaway closed the second with a flurry that had the Brazilian stunned. He went for the finish, but was unable to put Sarafian away.
“I wish I did,” Dollaway said. “I thought I had him in the second. He was so strong. I’ve trained with strong wrestlers – Ryan Bader and national wrestlers. I usually have no problem taking guys down. He was strong.”
