Amir Sadollah makes statement at UFN 20
12 January 2010
The second round was more even, with Blackburn pushing Sadollah against the fence. However, Sadollah’s knees in the clinch looked very crisp, showing off his newfound technical prowess in the striking department.In the third round, Sadollah was able to run away with the fight. A clean flying knee by Sadollah threatened to finish Blackburn off. While Bad Brad survived, he never fully recovered, being taken down and forced to play a meager defense by Sadollah for the rest of the fight.
Sadollah won more than just the unanimous decision. The show the Virginian put on tonight showed that Sadollah has little in the way of weaknesses in his overall game. Combined with his popularity among fans, Sadollah will likely fight his next UFC bout on Pay Per View against a ranked welterweight.
While most of Sadollah’s career was spent at Combat Sports Center of Richmond, he now fights out of Xtreme Couture. He is one of the flagship names signed by Suckerpunch Entertainment Management Company.
