Update: An official with Spike TV has confirmed that the Taylor vs. Dalloway match will indeed be televised on July 19.
A middleweight matchup between alumni from the seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter” between Jesse Taylor and C.B. Dalloway is planned for UFC Fight Night 14 on July 19.
The news comes courtesy of a report on MMAJunkie.com, which is citing sources within the camps of both fighters.
While it’s unknown for sure at this time whether the Taylor vs. Dalloway bout will be televised, it would be a surprise if it didn’t make the Spike TV telecast based on all the television time the two received on TUF 7.
Taylor was headed to the finals of the TUF 7 finale against Amir Sadollah until he was removed by UFC President Dana White for disciplinary reasons stemming from an incident that occurred in Las Vegas in the days after the show had originally wrapped.
Dalloway had been eliminated in the semifinals but was giving a second chance to make the finals after he defeated Tim Credeur in a bout to determine who would replace Taylor.
The former Arizona State University wrestling standout rematched Sadollah in the TUF 7 finals during the live finale on June 21 but lost when he submitted to an armbar in the first round.
UFN 14 is scheduled to be headlined by the UFC light heavyweight debut of Anderson Silva, as he takes on James Irvin. Featured bouts between Brandon Vera vs. Reese Andy and Frankie Edgar vs. Hermes Franca are planned as well.
