The next event we’ll be attending and reporting from live is UFC 101 in Philly, on August 8. That fight card just received two more boosts by way of scheduled/rumored welterweight bouts.
I first received word last night from contributing writer Tommy, that TUF 7 winner Amir Sadollah will finally get his crack at action inside the Octagon again, against skilled wrestler Johny Hendricks. Injury-plagued since “TUF”, Sadollah suffered both a staph infection (leg) and broken collarbone which forced the cancellation of his matches both times.
Additionally, the always exciting and full-of-personality Tamdan McCrory will take on John Howard. Howard was scheduled to face Anthony Johnson in the near future, but backed out of the fight for unknown reasons. Tamdan aka “The Barn Cat” (how can you not love that nickname!?) has been impressive against tough competition, and we recently witnessed his destruction of Ryan Madigan when live at UFC 96 in Ohio.
Philly’s getting a real treat with their first ever UFC event having a card which defines solid. For the details, check our UFC 101 page.
