I actually remember going on a website that announced fighters,, where Amir was ridiculed anywhere from being inexperienced, to having a middle-eastern name, to looking like an american idol contestant. Almost everyone said he was going to be a horrible fighter and was just their for entertainment purposes. I tried telling them to not judge him so quickly and that he would due really good on the show, but noone believed me. I guess the jokes on them. BTW I'm also now officially on the Amir Sadollah BandWagon.
Damn they were really ragging on him on mmajunkie. I bet they all feel pretty stupid now. I knew he would do well because I have sparred with him. He has really good Muay Thai. He generates a lot of force in his kicks. They were all calling him like the next Bowman, Im thinking he is going to be more like the next Forrest.
