Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah will return to the Octagon on May 15 against Wanderlei Silva student Jorge Lopez as part of the growing list of bouts scheduled for UFC on Fuel 3, a card headlined by featherweight action from Dustin Poirier-Chan Sung Jung.
The UFC announced the fight in addition to two others featuring Aaron Riley vs. Cody McKenzie and Dongi Yang vs. Brad Tavares.
Sadollah will be looking to bounce back from a decision loss to Duane Ludwig after stringing together a pair of victories in his prior bouts. The affable welterweight holds an overall record of 5-3 with all of his fights taking place under the UFC’s banner, as Sadollah is one of the rare competitors to have made his professional debut inside the organization’s infamous eight-sided cage.
The 11-2 Lopez is in a similar position to Sadollah’s after having come up short on the scorecards against Justin Edwards at UFN 25. Only 23, Lopez had won ten straight entering the bout.
