Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 winner Amir Sadollah will return to the Spike TV airwaves when he travels abroad to face Peter Sobotta at UFC 122 on Nov. 13 from the Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany, according to GroundandPound.de.

Sadollah (3-2) saw his two-fight winning streak come to an end at UFC 114: "Rampage vs. Evans" back in May courtesy of a lopsided beatdown at the hands of Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim.

Prior to the loss, the part-time TV personality took convincing decision wins over mixed martial arts veterans Brad Blackburn (UFC Fight Night 20) and Phil Baroni (UFC 106).

A win over Sobotta in front of the German's hometown crowd could get Sadollah right back into the welterweight mix.

Sobotta (8-3) is making his third -- and perhaps final -- appearance under the Zuffa banner. Despite a promising career on Germany's regional circuit, the Balingen native has yet to find a win in two appearances inside the Octagon.

After dropping a unanimous decision to Paul Taylor at UFC 99: "The Comeback" in June 2009, Sobotta was outworked by James Wilks at UFC 115: "Liddell vs. Franklin" earlier this year in Vancouver.

UFC 122 is expected to feature a bevy of German born fighters though no official match-ups have been announced at this time. Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more information on this still developing fight card.
