Amir Sadollah has again been forced to withdraw from his first bout since winning The Ultimate Fighter 7 last summer, suffering a broken clavicle that has knocked him out of his UFC Fight Night 17 matchup with Nick Catone.

MMA Weekly reported the injury on Friday afternoon.

Sadollah advanced to The Ultimate Fighter 7 finals with consecutive wins over Steve Byrnes, Gerald Harris, Matt Brown, and CB Dollaway, then defeated Dollaway again at the TUF 7 Finale in June to win the middleweight tournament in his professional debut. Sadollah was then booked to fight Catone at UFC 91 in November but was forced to withdraw from the fight due to a leg infection. After a late replacement could not be secured the matchup was pushed back to UFN 17 on February 7th, but Sadollah will again be unable to fight after breaking his clavicle while training.

The UFC is actively searching for a replacement for the bout, which was to air on the Spike TV-televised main card.
