The UFC will offer up a clash between TUF season 7 winner Amir Sadollah (1-0 UFC) and newcomer Nick Catone (5-0 MMA) in the fairly deep middleweight division. The bout scheduled for UFC 91 on November 15th at the well-known MGM Grand Garden Arena, will provide fans a chance to see the scrappy Sadollah against someone outside of the TUF 7 crowd.
Amir’s muay thai background should prove valuable in potentially neutralizing the Ricardo Almieda-taught jiu jitsu skills that Catone has displayed so dominantly in his past our fights under the Ring of Combat banner. It should be noted that Amir has mentioned a move from Richmond, Virginia to Las Vegas a couple of months ago. We imagine his training partners are sharpening his already lethal stand-up and arming the young gun with superb grappling practice. I for one, and am anxious to see this match-up when 91 rolls around the corner.
