UFC officials have confirmed that The Ultimate Fighter Season 7 winner Amir Sadollah and apt striker Stephen Thompson are set to fight at UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II. While Sadollah is looking to rebound from a loss to Dan Hardy in Nottingham, England at UFC on Fuel 5, Thompson has been out close to year since losing to Matt Brown. Thompson was supposed to fight at UFC 154 but an injury forced him off the card.
UFC 160 is scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 25 and will be headlined by a heavyweight title-fight between current champion Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva. This will be the second time the pair meet. In the first match Velasquez finished the fight in the first round.
