Jason “Mayhem” Miller has been granted another chance to showcase his skills inside the Octagon, as the UFC announced this past weekend Miller will face C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146.
Miller (24-8) was defeated in his most recent fight by Michael Bisping after the two were coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 14. Miller started fast in the five-round fight but tired quickly and Bisping took over, securing himself a decision victory UFC President Dana White labeled as “lopsided”.
Dollaway (11-4) is a former finalist on TUF and is 5-4 in his nine UFC fights. He won five of his first six bouts inside the Octagon after falling at the TUF 7 Finale but has been in a slump since.
While no main event has been solidified for the May 26 card a heavyweight championship match between Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem is expected to be featured in the headlining slot.

MMATraining Take: This is a perfect match up for Miller to regain confidence and get back on track. He is more experienced and should be able to showcase his skills much better against Dollaway than he did vs. Bisping. However, Dollaway has strong wrestling and will be just as hungry as Miller to earn a win.
