An exciting bout between welterweight strikers has just been booked for an unnamed UFC event set to transpire on May 25th, according to MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani. In one corner, TUF 7 winner and self-deprecating muay Thai striker Amir Sadollah, pictured above with Baby Sinclair from the popular 90′s children’s show Dinosaurs. In the other, world renowned kickboxer Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. In short, this fight will basically be leg kick porn.
Both men will be looking to bounce back into the win column with this fight; Thompson most recently dropped his first fight ever (Author’s note: Seriously. Ever.) to Matt Brown back at UFC 145, whereas Sadollah was outstruck by Dan Hardy en route to a unanimous decision loss at UFC on FUEL 5.
The fight is as close as you can get to a must win for Sadollah, who has dropped two of his past three contests and will be staring at the first ever two-fight skid of his career should he come up short against Thompson. Unfortunately for Sadollah, he will likely find himself outmatched in the striking department once again when facing a beast like Thompson. Before making the transition over to MMA, the phenom known as “Wonderboy” compiled an unbelievable 63-0 record in the kickboxing world, not to mention the fact that he nearly kicked the soul out of Dan Stittgen in his octagon debut. Look to see Sadollah try and take this one to the mat, especially when considering that Thompson was dominated by Sodallah’s fellow TUF 7 alum in Brown once the action was taken there.
Although no venue has been named for the Memorial Day card, the general consensus seems to be that the event will go down in Vegas, as is tradition.
