    C.B. DOLLAWAY COMMENTS ON "THE TAP"
    Monday, June 23, 2008 - by Jeff Cain - MMAWeekly.com


    C.B. Dollaway got a second chance at becoming "The Ultimate Fighter," and a second chance to defeat Amir Sadollah, who eliminated him from The Ultimate Fighter 7 competition. Dollaway was then brought back when finalist Jesse Taylor was kicked off the show for his conduct only days after filming concluded.

    Dollaway lost to Sadollah by arm bar, again, and spoke with the media about the tap that he wishes he could take back.

    "With the tap, I didn't fully commit to the tap, but I did hit him once," said the Tempe, Ariz. native. "I guess they ruled that a tap. I thought you had to go on and start tapping out. I did hit him once. Right as I did that, I felt my arm get into a position where I could get out. At that point Herb (Dean) ruled it as a tap out."

    The disappointed Dollaway reflected on The Ultimate Fighter 7 Live Finale loss to Sadollah. "It's kind of a crappy way for it to end for me after putting in all the hard work, training and everything for this fight," said the 24-year-old fighter. "I would have at least liked to have went a few more rounds. Having it end so quick is just a disappointment."

    IMO, he was in deep trouble and he tapped. Regardless of what he says.

    I agree. He tapped. He says after the first tap that he felt his arm get into a better position. Maybe Amir instinctively let up on the arm when he felt the tap/saw Dean coming to stop the fight. No controversy at all, IMO. If you don't want to tap, don't tap, but don't say, I only started to tap, yada, yada, yada.

    Only UFC sensation Brock Lesnar gets to tap once and have the fight go on.

    CB is my friend, but I think he tapped too. He said that he heard his arm popping and started to tap, but then thought he could wiggle out (like he said in the article), but it was too late. I can't believe he got armbarred again, you'd think that is all that he would be working on after losing to Amir that way on the show.

    Homer tell CB I'm not a fan of the white sunglasses.LOL

    Kind of reminds me of Elvis.(Presley)


    I was rooting for him to win. However, how can you not like a guy like Amir?

    CB doesn't wear them nearly as much as Riddle does.

    Yeah, it's impossible to not like Amir. I'm a fan of his for sure and hope that he has a good career.

    Since the white sunglasses have become part of his villain persona to some people based off this season, I had thought it would have been funny had he worn them when he walked out.

    Speaking of his walk out, coming out to Till I Collapse was bad ass.
