- CB Dollaway recently spoke about returning to Brazil for another fight. Here are the highlights…
On Fighting in Brazil Again: "I didn't hesitate when they asked me to come back. It is tough, but if you can come down here and fight and win, you can fight and win anywhere. It's a tough atmosphere and puts you in a rough position, but you deal with it like a professional. "You never know when an opportunity will come, and it may be tough circumstances, but I've dealt with them."
On His UFC 166 Loss to Tim Boetsch: "I took that fight on four-weeks' notice coming off an ankle reconstruction," Dollaway said. "I went out, and I thought I put on a performance that should have gotten me the victory. The judges didn't see it that way, but personally, in my head, I didn't lose that fight, and I'm riding a three-fight win streak. "I'm coming in, and I'm ready to rock and roll. I feel like I'm the best I've been in three years. I'm trying to move into the top-10 and start becoming a real contender."
On Enjoying Fighting in Brazil: "It doesn't get any tougher than coming to Brazil and fighting in someone's backyard," Dollaway said. "But on that note, I really enjoyed the crowd last time I was here, even though everyone was against me. There was a lot of energy in that building. It made for a great fight. It gave you that energy to keep fighting. I didn't want to lose in front of all those guys and let them have their way. Neither did Daniel, so it turned out to be a great fight, and I think that's what we're going to have again on Sunday night."
