In just a few short hours, UFC 146 will be live on FX with four free fights for the fans to see.

One of those fights, and perhaps the most anticipated FX fight, is a middleweight matchup between Jason "Mayhem" Miller and C.B. Dollaway.

Mayhem comes into the fight coming off a devastating loss to Michael Bisping, where he was outclassed throughout the entire fight before finally succumbing to strikes in the third round.

Dollaway also comes in off a loss—two losses, actually—having been TKO'd by Mark Munoz and then Jared Hamman.

Both fighters desperately need a win, as the loser's job could very well be on the line in the UFC.

Miller comes in having released a video blog detailing how hard he trained for this fight, and how it is the most important fight of his career.

Miller has also said that Dollaway doesn't belong in the cage with him, and many fans are in agreement, saying that these two fighters are in totally different leagues.

Expect Mayhem to come flying out of the gates, looking to get Dollaway to the ground and choke him out. Dollaway has been submitted in the past by Amir Sadollah and Tom Lawlor.

In addition to that, Dollaway was knocked out in 54 seconds by the training partner and friend of Miller, Mark Munoz.

Combine the help of Munoz and the new-found drive of Mayhem, and you have all the makings of a first-round submission for Jason "Mayhem" Miller.
