Amir_sadollah_mediumFronted and edited by Chris Nelson. Here's hoping Amir can stay healthy for this fight - he's gonna need to be 100% against the very game wrestler Hendricks. Also: McCrory-Howard is going to be wild, and Jake Rosholt can't catch a break.

UFC 101 has added two more fights according to MMA Junkie:

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that Amir Sadollah will meet undefeated WEC import Johny Hendricks (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC 101. Verbal agreements have been made, and bout agreements are in the process of being finalized.
UFC welterweights Tamdan McCrory (11-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and John Howard (11-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) have agreed to meet in August in the latest addition to the quickly filling UFC 101 card.

So far, the UFC 101 card rumored for August 8th in Philadelphia is looking like this:

UFC Lightweight Championship Bout
B.J. Penn vs. Kenny Florian

Televised Card
Forrest Griffin vs. Thiago Silva
Matt Hamill vs. Brandon Vera
Josh Neer vs. Kurt Pelligrino
Johnny Hendricks vs. Amir Sadollah

Preliminary Card

UFC 102 is also beginning to shape up according to MMA Junkie, with a middleweight matchup just added:

A middleweight bout between veteran UFC middleweight Chris Leben (18-5 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and recent WEC transplant Jake Rosholt (5-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will take place in August at UFC 102.
