Reports are surfacing that former “The Ultimate Fighter Season 7” contestant CB  Dollaway will be taking on Mike Massenzio at UFC 92 on January 27th at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Both fighters are coming off Octagon wins in their last UFC outings.

Dollaway was an early favorite to win his season of TUF, however was defeated on two separate occasions via arm bar by the season’s champ, Amir Sadollah.

Dollaway went on to defeat Jesse Taylor, whom he had replaced in the TUF finals against Sadollah, by a rare Peruvian Choke in the 1stRound at UFC Fight Night 14.

Massenzio holds an 11-2 professional record, and was victorious in his only UFC bout against Drew McFedries at UFC Fight Night 15 just last month.

FiveOuncesOfPain was the first to report that both fighters have verbally agreed to the bout, and that the contracts should be signed by week’s end.

As usual, the UFC ends their year with a bang and UFC 92 will be no different. The event will feature two title bouts, as Forrest Griffin will be making his first-ever light heavyweight defense against Rashad Evans, and Frank Mir will be challenging Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for his interim heavyweight title. In addition, former 205-pound champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will be taking on Wanderlei Silva.
