The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 middleweight winner, Amir Sadollah (1-0), is expected to return to the Octagon against Nick Catone (5-0) at UFC 91 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 15, according to FiveOuncesOfPain.com.

Sadollah -- the unlikely champion of the most recent edition of the Spike TV mixed martial arts reality series -- shocked just about everyone (including himself) with wins over Steve Byrnes, Gerald Harris, Matt Brown and CB Dollaway in just six weeks.

And he stopped them all early despite sustaining damage in most if not all of his fights. Not bad for a fighter who had zero professional fights under his belt prior to the show, He’s a super resilient and crafty fighter in the mold of UFC Heavyweight Champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Sadollah defeated Dollaway (again) in the finals of the tournament-style format via first round armbar after Jesse Taylor pissed away his chances -- literally and figuratively -- with a drunken rampage in "Sin City" shortly after the show wrapped.

Catone -- who trains under Brazilian jiu-jitsu stud Ricardo Almeida in Hamilton, N.J. -- has been active since 2007 on the northeast fighting circuit. He has finished his last three opponents via technical knockout under the Ring of Combat banner.

This will mark the first fight for Catone inside the Octagon.

UFC 91, of course, is headlined by the blockbuster fight between heavyweight champion Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar. Top lightweight contenders Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson are also expected to be in action.
