C.B. Dollaway Admits To Tapping Out…Sort Of

C.B. Dollaway tapped out in his fight with Amir Sadollah. That seemed clear to everyone but Dollaway following the bout. His vague protest of the stoppage seemed to be rooted in the belief that just tapping once wasn’t really a tap. That’s basically the MMA equivalent of trying to tell your girlfriend that it wasn’t cheating because it was with a prostitute. In other words, it’s an argument that’s doomed from the start.

In an interview with MMA Weekly, Dollaway kind of owns up to it:

“With the tap, I didn’t fully commit to the tap, but I did hit him once. I guess they ruled that a tap. I thought you had to go on and start tapping out. I did hit him once. Right as I did that, I felt my arm get into a position where I could get out. At that point Herb (Dean) ruled it as a tap out.”

Maybe the reason he felt his arm get into a better position after the initial tap was because Herb Dean stepped in and Amir began to let him go? You know, since by tapping his leg Dollaway indicated that he wanted to stop fighting. That’s usually how it works.

Whether he fully committed to the tap or not, tapping once is the same as tapping a dozen times. It’s a signal that you want to quit, which is why you probably shouldn’t tap at all if you don’t want to quit.

Good for him for sort of owning up to it in a very oblique way though. That’s kind of dignified almost.

wow, arron shaw, you should've put your comment right under CB's Penis', 'cause that's where you are. brown-noser. you'd really start a fight with someone who doesn't like another dude? just make sure to tap more than once when you're about to be broken. ho'.
Arron Shaw- June 25, 2008 at 6:59 pm
ok now you all are talking shit about cb right ok ok but how many of you would get your ass kicked if you all were fighting him??? in a octagon no where to run wow he got beat so has every good fighter. but guess what its really fun to say he sucks maybe all of you should train like he does and go on the ultimate fighter and beat 4 guys in a row then fight on the finale and we'll see whos talking shit then.

YES cb did tap it may have been only once but he did tap now had the ref been BIG JOHN McCarthy bet amir would have been knocked out. cause heres the thing Amir will not make it in UFC, Why well here's why and it's real simple. no stand-up his stand up sux. his ground sux. take downs sux the ONLY thing he's got going for him is the armbar. Fuck Gerald would have won the figh against amir but amir got a LUCKY knee that's it however the fact. bet matt brown could beat amir if they fought again.

But all this being said I have all the respect in the world for these guys they train hard fight hard and if you give it 110% and you lose then theres nothing else you can do.
Everyone has there good and bad days.

i just hope i catch someone at the bar or streets talking trash bout cb and how he sux and how they could beat his ass cause ill just bvreak their fucking jaw and be like "c'mon let's here you talk shit now BITCH"

so there it is im sticking up for cb cause hes god go look at his previous fight where he knocked a guy out in 17 seconds.
cecil peoples- June 24, 2008 at 5:30 pm
cb had a good start to the round, he landed some big shots and got the slam on amir.

i score the round 10-6 cb dollaway. considering he only tapped once...

Honestly I think it should be required that the tap-out be more than a single tap. That is something that could easily be mistaken in any given fight. Hell, I always thought that a tap-out was like three taps.

you guys are missing one -- CB "Cunt Burger" Dollaway.
cbtapalways dollaway- June 23, 2008 at 7:54 am
This has got to be some of the funniest stuff, I've ever read.
CB Dolloway- June 23, 2008 at 2:44 am
You fucking people are morons- That Launchpad shit was funny when I was a kid, come up with some new shit. CB doesnt like internet shit talkers, because I can kill all of you with my upper lip. CB is a better fighter than you. CB likes chocolate and sour patch kids. CB tired and must go to bed.

btw, Launchpad frequented Darkwing Duck as Duck Tales was coming to an end.
In that show there was a character named Nega-Duck. No relation to CB but I thought it was funny.
C.B.'s Penis- June 22, 2008 at 11:38 pm
I have to agree. As C.B.'s penis, I have also tapped a vagina once, hoping to get into a better position. Only the girl saw that I was in a bad spot and completely stopped the session. I should have learned from that mistake.
Myles Kilometers is my hero- June 22, 2008 at 11:17 pm
Myles Kilometers - that is some funny shit.

Those tricky producers ONCE AGAIN tricked CB into referring to himself in third person at the start of the fight night! See guys, he really isn't cocky, it's those damn producers steady trickin' his ass.

I was just praying for a post fight interview with CB. I took the Vegas over/under line of +/-3.5 third person references in the interview. Of course I took the over...that shit would have been money.

Charles Bryant Dollaway- June 22, 2008 at 10:45 pm
Fuck All of you, you internet nerds, step in the ocatagon with me for one minute with me and ill personally transform your faces into launchpad McQuack.

-P.S. I tapped once hoping amir would let go and I could get in a better position, I obviously failed due to the fact that Herb Dean saw it and stopped the fight.

Launchpad McQuack haha

maybe CB should change his nickname to "Douchebag McTap"
Dr.- June 22, 2008 at 5:09 pm
CB probably believes it when girls tell him they're half-pregnant.
Dr.- June 22, 2008 at 5:08 pm

You tell us how it is, CB "Tapsalot" Dollaway. And WTF was up with your perceived-obligatory nickname? Pitbull? Really? It's like shitface Kendall Grove and differentiating from Anderson Silva by having "DA' in there. Arlovski should kick your ass. I didn't know CB had a nickname on the TUF show. Maybe he thought now that he's big-time, he needs a kickass, intimidating moniker.

I was hoping Amir was going to give him a fat lower-lip to match the upper. Spot on with the "fool me once..." bit.
