FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned from two independent sources in the last 24 hours that USKBA middleweight champion Nick Catone is expected to face Amir Sadollah at UFC 91 on Nov. 15 in Las Vegas.

Bout agreements between Catone and Sadollah have not been signed but could be finalized by early next week.

Looks like this is can#1 that Amir faces. They feed cans to most of the Tuf winners. Forrest was fed cans until Tito (although not anymore) and Bisping is another example of the UFC feeding cans to the Ultimate Fighter winners. Plus they have to make sure Bisping is on every single card in London. Im sure attendance wouldnt differ much if Bisping wasnt on the card.

You have to look at every individual situation. Forrest Grffin and Diego Sanchez had a load of expierience going into the TUF. Even without the show, they should have started off fighting expierienced guys, and for the most part they did. Amir's situation is totally different. He was the most unlikely winner in the shows history. He simply has to be fighting what you guys say are cans. And even "cans" are not guaranteed wins. He still has to go out there and win. The man is 2 and 0. I would say he needs a minimum of two outstanding performances against unheralded fighters before we even think of putting him in against some of the better middleweights. It would be an injustice to him to have him fight tough compitition when other guys in the ufc where allowed to work there way up. He will win his fights, and he will fight better fighters. Let the process play out.
