TUF Winner Eyes Fall Return Following Elbow Surgery

June 24, 2014 7:53 am by BJPENN.COM News

TUF 7 Winner Amir Sadollah’s manager Brian Butler-Au joined Fox Sports to explain that while his fighter is anxious to return from his 2-year layoff from the sport, he doesn’t want to rush anything. Sadollah suffered an injury nearly two years ago during training camp and underwent a fairly routine medical procedure, however complications from the surgery led to Sadollah having nerve damage.

“That’s specifically the reason you haven’t seen him back in the octagon. The injury was one thing that set him back, then the surgery, and then realizing the surgery caused some additional damage.”

“He’s feeling good now,” Butler-Au said. “He’s getting his training in and getting his timing back. It’s nothing we want to rush into after being gone for so long. We want to get a good camp in, but Amir is anxious to get back in, and he’s motivated.”
