TUF'er Sadollah off UFC 91 card

Publish date:

The Ultimate Fighter Season 7 winner Amir Sadollah has been removed from the UFC 91 fight card. He has a leg infection that has required him to withdraw from Saturday's event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Unfortunately for his opponent, Nick Catone, it does not appear that a replacement will be stepping in at this late hour.

"After an exhaustive search for a replacement, the middleweight matchup will not be replaced on the card," stated a report on UFC.com.

The disappointment for Sadollah and Catone has a bright side for preliminary card fighters Dustin Hazelett and Tamdan McCrory. Their bout will be upgraded to the main card on pay-per-view.

UFC 91 features a championship showdown between returning heavyweight titleholder Randy Couture and rising challenger Brock Lesnar.
