"The Count" is looking for a quick win in Canada.

C.B. Dollaway will have two minutes to make something happen to tilt the fight in his favor when he goes toe-to-toe against Michael Bisping at UFC 186 on April 25, 2015, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

If he fails to do so, then it will be all downhill from there for "The Doberman," because he will realize shortly thereafter that it was a mistake to accept a fight against "The Count."

That's according to Bisping, who (via The MMA Hour) claimed that it will take 120 seconds for Dollaway to begin looking for a way out of their middleweight showdown.

"My training situation has been the best its ever been. He will not be able to take me down and I am going to systematically tear this guy apart. I respect him as an opponent, but listen, he's going to face the best version of myself that's ever been. As I've gotten older I am training smarter, I'm not over training. I'm strong, I'm faster and my technique is better. CB Dollaway will pay the price on April 25. Two minutes in he is going to realize and say, 'shit, I can't win this fight, I can't beat this guy."

This is a pivotal fight for Bisping, who will look show the mixed martial arts (MMA) world that he is far from done in the sport after going even (4-4) in his last eight bouts, including his most recent submission loss to Luke Rockhold at UFC Fight Night 58 in Nov. 2014.

And, according to the brash Brit, it will come at the expense of Dollaway, who with a loss would suffer his second straight quick defeat after getting outclassed by Lyoto Machida in a little more than one minute a few short months ago.

Apparently, Dollaway's foes want to give him very little run time inside the Octagon.
