Phil Baroni vs. Amir Sadollah In The Works for UFC 106

Amir SadollahWelterweight veteran Phil Baroni will make his return to the Octagon on November 21 at UFC 106 in Las Vegas against The Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah, according to a report from Inside Fights citing sources close to both camps.

Baroni (13-11) went 3-5 in 8 UFC bouts between 2001 and 2005, leaving the UFC following four-straight losses. Three-straight defeats to Frank Shamrock, Kala Hose, and Joey Villasenor in 2007 and 2008 caused Baroni to drop down to welterweight, where he won three-straight fights before falling to Joe Riggs in his last fight in June.

Sadollah (1-1) won TUF 7 last June with a first-round submission of CB Dollaway, but was out of action for over a year due to injuries before finally returning last month at UFC 101 to suffer a controversial first-round TKO loss to Johny Hendricks.

UFC 106, which airs live on pay-per-view from the Mandalay Bay Events Center, is headlined by a matchup between heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and challenger Shane Carwin, and is also rumored to include Tito Ortiz vs. Mark Coleman and Kenny Florian vs. Clay Guida.
