(mmajunkie.com)
Amateur wrestling standout C.B. Dollaway (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will be a cast member on the “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” the latest installment of the UFC and Spike TV’s reality series. Sources close to the fighter tell MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the former Arizona State Sun Devil learned he had been selected for the show last month. “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” which debuts April 2 on Spike TV, features UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and season-one winner Forrest Griffin as coaches. Sixteen middleweight fighters vie for a UFC contract in a tournament-style competition. Dollaway is a former high school state champion, a junior college national champion, and a 2005 collegiate All-American while at ASU. His transition into MMA has been a smooth one. Despite his wrestling background, he’s posted five stoppages — four by way of knockout.

Randy Couture Picks Tim Sylvia Over Antonio Noguiera
(mmafightline.com)
Randy Couture is, legally speaking, the UFC heavyweight champion. He recently declined an invitation to fight Antonio Noguiera however, stating that he has resigned from the UFC and wished to pursue a fight with consensus number one heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko. He has since battled UFC management in an intense, and very public war of words; and now faces a potential legal battle as well. The latest spat between Couture and the UFC has to do with Couture's work as a cornerman at events held by organizations such as the IFL and HCF. Couture has appearently recieved word from UFC officials that making appearences at such organizations is a breach of contract. Couture sat down with The Calgary Sun to discuss the situation in more detail and also weighted in on the upcoming battle between Noguiera and his replacement at UFC 81, Tim Sylvia.

Bisping Addresses Move To Middleweight
(mmaweekly.com)
U.K. fan favorite Michael Bisping addressed the UFC Fight Club recently in England and gave some insights into his fight with Matt Hamill and his move from light heavyweight down to the middleweight division. “I feel like I should have pushed the pace a lot more, but I am not going to sit here and whine about it like some other people” said Bisping of his fight with Hamill. Talking of losses to highly regarded American wrestlers in the 205-pound division, he was considerably more vocal about the prospect of a rematch with Hamill. “I have moved to middleweight, so for the time being, that fight is out of the window, it was my 15th pro fight and I realized then that you can’t always go out and have the best performance,” he stated. “However, he knows I can K.O. him and as long as he continues to whine and bitch about it, it may be sooner rather than later.”

Second-Fiddle Tim Sylvia Aims for History
(mmajunkie.com)
Tim Sylvia may be the world’s largest Rodney Dangerfield. The 6-foot-8, two-time former UFC heavyweight champion simply can’t get respect. On Feb. 2 in Las Vegas, Sylvia will attempt to become only the second man in MMA history to win three major league world championships. Sylvia is attempting to go into the record book behind only Randy Couture, who won his fifth championship when beating Sylvia via decision last year. His opponent in an interim title match, Brazil’s Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, can make a legitimate claim for being the second best heavyweight in the sport’s history. But for all the hype UFC 81 is getting, you’d likely never know either of those things. It certainly never came up at Thursday’s UFC press conference for UFC 81.

Tanner vs. Okami Official; Koscheck vs. Hazelett Un-Televised at UFC 82
(mmajunkie.com)
After weeks of speculation, a UFC 82 middleweight bout between Evan Tanner and Yushin Okami is now official. Additionally, the UFC today revealed that a welterweight bout between “The Ultimate Fighter 1” standout Josh Koscheck (9-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and Cincinnati-based fighter Dustin Hazelett (10-3 MMA, 3-1 UFC) will appear on the event’s un-televised preliminary card. News of the Tanner vs. Okami has been reported — and re-reported — for the past month. However, Tanner’s camp couldn’t confirm the bout to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), and a source close to the UFC told us that UFC executives were “extremely pissed” that news of the fight got out in the first place. In the interview, Tanner also revealed that the UFC had an extremely difficult time finding him an opponent. The bout was offered to four fighters — all of whom turned it down. The UFC eventually booked Okami, a middleweight contender who’s 5-1 in the UFC. He signed a new contract with the UFC after his most recent fight: a UFC 77 unanimous-decision victory over Jason MacDonald.
