Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Amir Sadollah Forced to Pull Out of UFC Fight Night 17

(At times like these, it’s the simple pleasures that sustain us. Photo courtesy of CombatLifestyle.)

Due to an injury sustained in training, TUF 7 winner Amir Sadollah will not be facing Nick Catone at UFC Fight Night 17 (February 7th; Tampa, Florida). No, he didn’t break his funny-bone. According to MMA Weekly:

[S]ources indicated that the fighter suffered a broken clavicle in training that pushed him out of the fight…
Sadollah and Catone were originally scheduled to meet in November 2007, but a last second leg injury forced the "Ultimate Fighter" winner off the card and instead of finding a replacement, the UFC opted to push their match-up back to February instead. Before his previously scheduled match in Nov, Sadollah had a leg infection that put him in the hospital and out of action for an extended period of time.

This sucks just as bad for Nick Catone, who has been inactive since last June, just waiting for Sadollah to get his shit together. Luckily, the UFC is trying to find a replacement for Amir so that Catone can still compete next month.

As for Sadollah, he’s also been inactive since last June, when he submitted CB Dollaway at the TUF 7 finale. That fight is still the only pro MMA match on Sadollah’s record. There’s no word yet on when he’ll be able to return to competition, though perhaps Amir should take this as a sign that God is very displeased with the idea of him as a cage-fighter.

Amir will be back. I have had the pleasure of working with him before UFC and he's tuff and has determination that makes him one of the best. Getting injuried in trainning happens alot. Just remember trainning is the hardest part of being a fighter.

Dana white just wants to suck CB's cock, he was always complimenting him during the show, and already gave him 2 televised fights in the ufc while Amir doesn't get shit. Amir is 28, he really needs to get his career going, stop fucking chewing tobacco, and get better.

Its kinda sad when the person who finished second on the show already has 2 fights before you even get your first. CB was even on the main card to the biggest card of the year while Amir is getting spots on Fight Nights. I guess we know who the real winner of season 7 was.

They were scheduled to fight in November of 2008. Not 2007.

Hate to say it, but this poser doesnt know how to train. Its always an excuse with him, and he's only messing up his career because of it. He beat Launchpad. Wow. Its gonna suck when he actually has to fight someone that has some dedication and skill to him. If he's messed up now, just wait until he actually has a real fight. He won't last long. Mark my words.

Maybe I'm imagining this, but weren't we looking forward to a Sadollah fight a few months back, and he had to pull out because of an injury? Feels like deja vu.

@ manutdfan

The ironic part of it is that he'll be unable to do his self-deprecating shrugging with a broken clavicle

Feel better Amir "Holla @" Sadollah

All of that 'ironic' shrugging he's done has finally caught up with him. All the more time to brush up those blogging jokes you bless us with...
