Amir Sadollah will try to bounce back from his UFC on Versus 5 loss to Duane Ludwig when he faces Wanderlei Silva protege Jorge Lopez at UFC 143 in February. The bout is expected to take place on the preliminary card. UFC.com has the news:
Verbal agreements are in for a welterweight matchup between two exciting strikers as Wanderlei Silva protégé Jorge Lopez takes on Ultimate Fighter winner Amir Sadollah at UFC 143.
Lopez was a standout in Tachi Palace Fights before earning a shot in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 25. He lost a unanimous decision to Justin Edwards, which snapped a 10-fight win streak. Sadollah had been on a two-fight win streak before the loss to Ludwig, and the former TUF winner will need a win to stay afloat in the competitive welterweight division.
