Amir Sadollah's (1-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) first opponent at 170 pounds - and first since defeating C.B. Dollaway at the June 2008 "TUF 7" finale - has been set.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that Sadollah will meet undefeated WEC import Johny Hendricks (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC 101. Verbal agreements have been made, and bout agreements are in the process of being finalized.Link
What's the odds on Sadollah pulling out of this fight too?
Two great prospects in that fight. Hendricks probably needed a few more fights before the WEC's 170 pound weight division was cleaned up to be ready for the UFC's welterweight juggernaut..
this fight will probably make the main card i hope amir might fight this time
I hope this fight actually happens,its a pretty interesting matchup.
Hollah for Sadollah! I hope he makes this fight!
ill be rooting for amir but i think hendricks takes this......amir has all the tools, but it will be a year and a half since his last fight by the time this one comes about, thats too much rust for such a green fighter....hendricks is still green, but he is a legit up and comer and the only legit guy coming out of team takedown right now.....good boxing and great wrestling, i think his wrestling is more suited for mma than any other team takedown fighter as well....his last fight agaisnt alex (cant spell his last name) was proof on how fast he is rising cause alex is a well rounded legit vet and hendrix handled him.....i see him winning by decision.....that being said tho, amir made his name by taking out good wrestlers (dolloway twice, gerald harris) and so im not counting him out for sure
I think Hendricks will win a decision.
Cmon Amir...Please make it to the octagon? Please?
