A welterweight bout between veteran Duane "Bang" Ludwig (20-11 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and "The Ultimate Fighter 7" winner Amir Sadollah (4-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) has been slotted for March's UFC Fight Night 24 event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the matchup from sources close to the event, who said verbal agreements are in place.

While not yet officially announced by the promotion, UFC Fight Night 24 is expected to take place March 26 in Seattle and features a Spike TV headliner between Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Tito Ortiz.

It's not known if Ludwig vs. Sadollah will be part of the televised main card.

Ludwig recently saved his UFC career with a split-decision win over Nick Osipczak at UFC 122. Prior to the fight, which marked the former lightweight's return to 170 pounds, Ludwig dropped three of four fights, which included UFC losses to Jim Miller (submission) and Darren Elkins (TKO due to an ankle injury).

This fight works. Both seem Fight Night material at the moment and I honestly wouldn't care to see this fight on any PPV main card but it will still be a solid fight and entertaining.

Sodallah seems to have the more well rounded skill set and unless Ludwig somehow catches him right on the chin I don't see how Sodallah could lose. I'm thinking a decision for Sodallah or maybe a late submission if Ludwig runs low on gas.

I guess we'll see how good Amir's Muay Thai really is or isn't.

Should be a great stand up fight but give the advantage to Amir.
