I'm glad to see Amir get the win. I was reading this fights breakdown article from a blogger and it was sort of irritating to see how they gave Amir a very low chance of winning. They were basically saying Brad Blackburn was very well rounded and it would be a big upset if Sadollah actually came out with the win. I was like "wow, really?" I know Sadollah is very inexperienced, but Brad Blackburn hasn't exactly shown he is a contender yet either. He was previously 3-0 in the UFC with a notable win over Ryo Chonan. Chonan isn't a bad fighter, but he hasn't been relevant in a while in my opinion. Blackburn still has a lot to prove just like Sadollah does.
I don't think there was a favorite to win in this fight, but I was picking Sadollah from the beginning and I'm glad I kept him as my pick regardless of how the odds of him winning were. He schooled Blackburn in this fight.
