Glad they made this match up... I was a firm believer that Tim vs Amir in the finale would have been a more entertaining fight than CB vs Amir

I think people dislike CB Dolloway so much that people are going to root for a guy that pisses himself, kicks out limo windows, and harrasess woman at the bar. Smash em' JT.

Good we will def. see CB's endurance put to the test in this fight. I really don't think this is a good match up for Jesse. His strength is wrestling and CB is a better wrestler and has better stand up so for CB I think the game plan should be defend the take down and brawl.


If he does take Taylor down though Jesse looked bad off his back against Tim and Tim should have subbed him a number of times but he was way too tired. I think if CB puts him on his back the fight will be over in that round but I see CB winning a UD if he just wants to defend the takedown and bang with Jess too perhaps hitting a big shot leading to a TKO but I'd lean on the side of him out striking him.

This is a tough one to pick. Two strong wrestlers. I would say JT has better cardio and sub defense. My issue comes from the rest of JT's skills. Simply put we havent see them. Im still not sure how good his stand up is or how he reacts when he is faced with a better wrestler.

And for the record im not sure how much better of a wrestler CB is. JT has great power and relentless takedowns. Wrestling in college is one thing, wrestling in MMA is something else entirely. Wrestling doesnt focus on control from within guard and i think JT may have the advantage there.

In the process of composing this post ive convinced myself that JT Money is going to eek out a decision by securing a takedown eventually and maintaining top control while doing just enough damage to win.

I like both of these guys. They are fighters. JT is not well rounded enough for CB. Where JT has a strength, so does CB. But CB has strengths in other places too. Should be a close fight. And I dont neccarrily think loser has to leave ufc. If they both fight skilled they can stay.

This is a good move by the UFC. The fact that Jesse was kicked off the show is still fresh in peoples mind, and I think a lot will be rooting for him.

Kevietre's prediction is...



If JT is sober for this fight he has a really good chance of winning.

This is awesome. I would rather pick a pants peeing, window kicking, meathead over that cocky ass CB. I thought I hated this guy when he referred to himself in the 3rd person on the show and was convinced when he acted like a spoiled brat at the end of his fight with Amir. Anyway I think Jesse will win this one by a decision, most likely a split.
