After a action-packed 90-minute final episode of “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” the final bout of the middleweight tournament is finally set. In a semifinals rematch, CB Dollaway will take on Amir Sadollah at “The Ultimate Fighter 7″ Finale on Saturday, June 21st at The Pearl in Las Vegas, Nevada for The Ultimate Fighter 7 title.
The event will air live on Spike TV beginning at 9pm ET.
In the second semi-final bout of the tourney, Dollaway dominated Sadollah over the opening two frames with a series of takedowns, control, and strikes. In the third round it appeared to be more of the same as Dollaway again took Sadollah to the ground early but in a frantic scramble midway through the round Sadollah quickly secured a fight-ending armbar that forced Dollaway to tap out.
With both semifinals completed and Jesse Taylor and Amir Sadollah having secured their places in the final bout we witness an “Ultimate Fighter” first as Taylor is removed from the bout and released by the promotion for kicking out the window of a limousine, “terrorizing” female hotel guests, and yelling at hotel security.
With a spot in the finals again up for grabs semifinals losers Tim Credeur and CB Dollaway are invited back to the UFC complex where thay are informed that they will square off against one-another in a second-chance semifinal to fill Taylor’s now-vacant finals spot against Amir.
It’s a back-and-forth battle between Dollaway and Credur that goes to decision. Despite displaying significantly improved standup, Credeur comes out on the losing end of the unanimous decision decided in large part by Dollaway’s ability to take his opponent down.
On Saturday in Las Vegas, Dollaway will look to avenge his upset semifinals loss to Sadollah on the main card of “The Ultimate Fighter 7″ Finale.
As always, MMAFrenzy.com will have live coverage of the event this Saturday, June 21st, beginning at 7pm ET.
