The latest addition to the UFC 143 card is a welterweight bout now official between Amir Sadollah and Jorge Lopez.
UFC officials took to twitter to announce the bout.
UFC 143 is set to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on February 4th. Georges St. Pierre will be the headliner against his newest title challenger Nick Diaz live on pay-per-view.
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.
With the addition to the card, UFC 143 now includes:
Champ Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz (for welterweight title)
Carlos Condit vs. Josh Koscheck
Erik Koch vs. Dustin Poirier
Alex Caceres vs. Edwin Figueroa
Jorge Lopez vs. Amir Sadollah
Rafael Natal vs. Michael Kuiper
