After the disappointing cancellation of the fight between Amir Sadollah and Nick Catone for UFC 91 due to a leg infection suffered by Sadollah just prior to the bout, MMAWeekly.com has confirmed that the two will now meet on Feb. 7 at UFC Fight Night 17 instead.
The bout was confirmed by Nick Catone to IGuillotine.com, as well as independently by other sources to MMAWeekly.com on Sunday.
The match-up was supposed to be on the main card of UFC 91, but after Sadollah came down with an unexpected leg infection the fight was cancelled. Dustin Hazelett versus Tamdan McCrory got the bump to the main card instead.
Now out of the hospital and back to training, Sadollah will get back in fight shape to face Catone, the same person he was originally slated to fight in his first appearance since winning the seventh season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality show some months ago.
The Feb. 7 UFC Fight Night 17 event has not yet been officially announced by the UFC, but Sadollah versus Catone is expected to be a featured bout on the card expected to take place at The Palms in Las Vegas.
Sweet should be free, I had Catone winning the first one and still think he is going to win this one.
