A leg infection has forced The Ultimate Fighter season seven winner Amir Sadollah to withdraw from his UFC 91 bout against Nick Catone this Saturday. After an exhaustive search for a replacement, the middleweight matchup will not be replaced on the card, but the welterweight showdown between rising stars Dustin Hazelett and Tamdan McCrory will be bounced to the pay-per-view portion of Saturday’s event.
I’m not too sure what the UFC means by a leg infection … could it be staph? Whatever the reason, seeing Amir fight was something I was really looking forward to. Ah well … at least they added a decent fight onto the main card as a replacement … Dustin Hazelett is always entertaining to watch and I bet he’s going to tie Tamdan McCrory in knots Saturday night.
