The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 middleweight winner, Amir Sadollah, has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming bout against Nick Catone at UFC 91: "Couture vs. Lesnar" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 15 because of a leg infection.
Unfortunately, the promotion was unable to secure a replacement on such short notice, meaning that Catone will have to wait to make his Octagon debut and the show will go on with nine fights instead on the original 10.
In addition, according to an official announcement on UFC.com, the welterweight match up between Dustin Hazelett and Tamdan McCrory has been promoted to the televised portion of the pay-per-view (PPV) telecast.
Some fans may actually be happy to hear the latter news -- "McLovin" and "Barn Cat" are both bright up-and-coming talents who come to scrap.
UFC 91 features the main event between heavyweight champion Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar. In addition, lightweights Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson will do battle for the right to be considered the top title contender in the 155-pound division in the co-featured fight of the evening.
Remember that MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the main card action on fight night, which is slated to air at 10 p.m. ET on PPV. Of course, the latest quick updates of the prelim bouts will begin to flow earlier than that at around 8:30 p.m. ET.
