The co-main event of today's (Sat., May 31, 2014) UFC Fight Night 41: "Munoz vs. Mousasi" event at O2 World in Berlin, Germany, featured French striker Francis Carmont allowing the world to live vicariously through him in his quest to punch CB Dollaway in the face a lot of times.
The two engaged in a stand up battle of wills that played itself out like a Nick Diaz fight in the sense that, well, they were taunting each other early, hoping to force the other to engage.
It wasn't working for the most part. Then, Dollaway fired off a hard left hand and dropped Carmont. He couldn't secure the finish, however, and once Carmont got back to his feet, he went right back to taunting his opponent, the man who, mind you, had just planted him.
After eating some kicks and a few more punches, "Limitless" decided he does indeed have a limit and took "The Doberman" down. He did nothing with his positioning, however, and actually closed the round on his back.
The action was far slower in the second round notable only for a late submission attempt from Carmont that never really had a chance of being completed. Dollaway continued his slow but methodical march to victory. The third and final frame played out exactly like the second save for any real threat from the Frenchman.
The judges awarded the decision to Dolloway on scores of 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28.
After, Dollaway breathlessly told Dan Hardy in the post-fight interview that he's excited about being a top 10 middleweight now. Also, he was really tired, so much so that he couldn't call anyone out. UFC President Dana White quickly tweeted:
CB is awesome on the mic. DYNAMIC!!!!!— Dana White (@danawhite) May 31, 2014
