A source close to the fighter told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the return date and that, though not signed, Dollaway could face veteran fighter Jorge Rivera (15-7 MMA, 4-5 UFC) at the year-end event.

After losing his second strait loss to The Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah at the Finale of TUF 7, Dolloway came back at UFC Fight Night 14 and submitted Jesse Taylor with an impressive Peruvian Necktie submission.

Rivera, 36, dropped a disappointing fight to Martin Kampmann in June at UFC 85. Following the loss to Kampmann, a personal tragedy struck when Rivera’s eldest daughter passed away in August.

Dana White has announced that kicked off TUF 7 fighter Jesse Taylor will return to take on runner up CB Dolloway at UFC Fight Night 14 on July 19 from the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Jesse Taylor was set to take on Amir Sadollah in the TUF 7 Finale, before being kicked off the show for going on a little rampage in a Las Vegas casino.

Hers a clip of UFC president Dana Whites talking about the issue:

“Whoever told you we encouraged them to tear up the house is (an expletive) liar….Nobody ever told them what to do on the show. A lot of guys, they get off the show and they’re embarrassed by what they’ve done. And think about this: I’ve faced a lot of challenges since we’ve had the UFC, but I have a kid (Taylor) who pissed his pants on television and now I have to turn him into a star.”

White said he used to drink and act rowdy when he was in his early 20s and doesn’t want to imagine what he might have done had he been on a television show. But he called the destruction of the house “retarded….there was no sense or purpose to what they did.”

“Without a doubt, the kid deserves another chance….He made himself look like a fool, and he’s aware of that, but everyone deserves another opportunity and we’re going to give it to him. He acted like a moron. He’s embarrassed by it, which he should be, but what he did doesn’t amount to enough to ban him forever. Come on. He was just young and stupid, but at least he seems to have learned from what he did.”
