Amir Sadollah issues statement from hospital on UFC 91 withdrawal

Props: Amir.SuckerPunchENT.com

Quoteworthy:

"... I am so sorry I am not able to fight this weekend. I trained harder for this than any other fight in my life and I was looking forward to this more than you know. It started on friday with a small mark on my leg. I immediately went to the doctor and he gave me medication and told me if it got worse to go to the hospital. Well, it got worse and on Sunday I went in and have been here ever since. I am hoping they will discharge me by Thursday. I am very sorry if I disappointed anyone. A lot of work by a lot of people went into this. For it to end with something totally out of my control makes it difficult to swallow. I will be back in the gym as soon as possible and will be ready to fight as soon as Joe Silva can get me back in."

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 season winner Amir Sadollah provides additional details about the injury that forced him out of his middleweight bout against Nick Catone at UFC 91: "Lesnar vs. Couture" on November 15. He was scratched from the card with just four days until fight night, leaving the promotion with no time to find a replacement. The bout has been scrapped and the welterweight match up between Dustin Hazellet and Tamdan McCrory was promoted to the televised portion of the pay-per-view (PPV) card. There is no timetable for Sadollah's return, but the good news is that it appears it will be sooner rather than later.
