Dollaway needed just 2 minutes and 13 seconds to submit Canadian veteran Joe Doerksen in the final preliminary bout of "UFC 119: Mir vs. Cro Cop," which took place at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
The six-bout preliminary card, a portion of which was featured on Spike TV, preceded the evening's pay-per-view-broadcast main card.
After a patient start from both, Doerksen latched hold of a Dollaway kick and shoved him to the mat. But as Dollaway fell, he grabbed an arm-in guillotine and fell to his back. From there, the action stalled with "El Dirte" trapped and Dollaway refusing to exert himself any more than necessary.
After several tense seconds, it became obvious that the choke was not going to work. As Dollaway looked to adjust, Doerksen alertly rolled to escape. The ensuing scramble saw an intense series of rolls with one fighter looking for freedom and the other hanging onto the neck.

Dollaway kept control of the choke while removing the obstruction of Doerksen's arm, and the Canadian had no choice to tap as his opponent wrenched his neck.
By tapping an opponent with 33 submission wins to credit, Dollaway proved his grappling game is progressing nicely. It was a thrill even to the fighter, himself.
"I can't believe I even got that," Dollaway admitted. "I was worried about his submission game and avoiding it.
"I can't believe I caught that."
