Amir Sadollah vs Phil Baroni Official For UFC 106

A previously rumored bout between "The Ultimate Fighter 7" champion Amir Sadollah, and "The New York Bad Ass" Phil Baroni has officially been added to the events page at The fight will take place at UFC 106 which airs live on pay-per-view from Las Vegas, Nev.

Sadollah entered the UFC without any professional mixed martial arts experience. In the "Ultimate Fighter" tournament, he made the finals by besting fellow combatants Steve Byrnes, Gerald Harris, Matt Brown, and C.B. Dolloway. He was scheduled to meet Jesse Taylor at the finale event, but Taylor was removed due to behavioral problems.

In a replacement bout, C.B. Dolloway defeated Tim Credeur and earned a rematch with Sadollah at the finale.

In the first contest, Sadollah defeated Dolloway by way of armbar and it did not take long for Amir to once again lock up Dollaway's arm to get his second straight victory over his opponent.

It would be 14 months before Amir would fight again; he suffered several injuries forcing the cancellation of multiple fights. In just his second professional fight, Amir was quickly knocked out by Johny Hendricks and now holds an MMA record of 1-1.

Standing opposite Sadollah in the cage will be Phil Baroni, who looks to return to the organization where he initially made a name for himself. "The New York Bad Ass" began his career with an impressive 5-1 record before he would lose four straight before leaving the UFC.

Since his exodus from the ranks of the UFC, Baroni has fought in PrideFC, Cage Rage, Icon, and Strikeforce. A drop to welterweight has proven successful, as he is 3-1 since the move. Phil looks to put his mark on the UFC's welterweight division and establish himself as a serious contender. His last bout was a uninamous decision loss to Joe Riggs in June, pushing his MMA record to 13-11 (although UFC officials list his record at just 6-5).
