Amir Sadollah Set For Return Against Jorge Lopez At UFC on FUEL TV 3

February 12, 2012 10:52 am by Pedro Carrasco

A welterweight bout has been added the upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 3 card in the form of Amir Sadollah vs. Jorge Lopez.

UFC officials announced the bout via twitter late last night.

With a featherweight headliner in place between the fast rising Dustin Poirier and the equally talented “Korean Zombie”, UFC on FUEL TV 3 is set to go down from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. on May 15.

The bout between Lopez and Sadollah was originally scheduled to go down at last weekend’s UFC 143 event. However both fighters were forced off the card when plagued by injury.

The Wanderlei Silva trained Lopez enters his second UFC bout on the heels of a debut loss to Justin Edwards at UFC Fight Night 25. The loss snapped a 10-fight win streak for the welterweight stand-out who will no doubt be out to prove a point against Sadollah.

Sadollah is probably best known as “The Ultimate Fighter 7” winner. Having mixed results since winning the show, Amir was last seen in a losing effort to Duane Ludwig during the UFC on Versus 5 live card. The loss snapped a two fight win streak.
