Amir Sadollah will not be facing Nick Catone this Saturday night at UFC 91.
UFC.com has reported a leg infection will prevent the TUF 7 champion from fighting on one of the year’s biggest cards.
The fight would have been the second pro bout in Sadollah’s young career.
His opponent, Catone, will also be off the card as well. UFC.com reported “After an exhaustive search for a replacement, the middleweight matchup will not be replaced on the card.”
However, the Dustin Hazelett and Tamdan McCrory welterweight bout will be bumped up from the prelim portion of the card and will make it onto the pay-per-view broadcast.
In other news, Fiveouncesofpain.com has reported Jason “The Punisher” Lambert became a free agent earlier today. The website confirmed the news with Lambert’s manager Matt Stansell.
Lambert’s departure from the UFC comes days after Fabricio Werdum’s reported exit from Zuffa.
Lambert (23-9) started his career in the UFC by winning his first three bouts. However, after losing four of his last five in the Octagon, and not winning a match since UFC 68, Lambert’s stock in the UFC dropped.
