Affable Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah will look to put together the first three-fight winning streak of his young career in late summer when he faces well-rounded Duane “Bang “Ludwig as part of a still-developing UFC Live 5 card. No specific date or location for the event have been mentioned though, according to an official statement from the UFC, August is being targeted for the forthcoming Versus broadcast.
The 5-2 Sadollah has won four of his last five bouts including recent victories over Peter Sobotta and DaMarques Johnson after dropping the follow-up fight to his Season 7 submission of C.B. Dollaway in June 2008.
Ludwig will enter the evening with more than 4X Sadollah’s experience after having spent more than a decade in the sport on a journey involving success over notable names like Genki Sudo, Jens Pulver, and Yves Edwards. The 32-year old who happens to celebrate a birthday in August was last seen barely outpointing Nick Osipczak in November at UFC 122, a performance improving his overall record to 20-11 with ten TKOs and six submissions.
In addition to Ludwig vs. Sadollah, the UFC also announced T.J. O’Brien will go for his seventeenth submission victory in seventeen total wins at the event when he faces American Top Team’s Cole Miller who himself has never been tapped out in twenty two professional fights.
