11-Fight Lineup Finalized for UFC 122

“The Ultimate Fighter” Season 7 winner Amir Sadollah will collide with German standout Peter Sobotta in a featured welterweight duel at UFC 122 “Marquardt vs. Okami” on Nov. 13 at the Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany. The UFC has finalized an 11-fight lineup for the event.

A late bloomer, Sadollah last appeared at UFC 114 in May, when he lost a unanimous decision to unbeaten South Korean judoka Dong Hyun Kim at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The 30-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y., native holds notable victories against the well-traveled Phil Baroni, Bellator Fighting Championships veteran Brad Blackburn and Lions Den Scottsdale standout C.B. Dollaway. Based at Xtreme Couture Mixed Martial Arts in Las Vegas, Sadollah has never lost back-to-back fights.

Sabotta finds himself on the rebound in wake of consecutive defeats. The 23-year-old Balingen, Germany, native has not competed since UFC 115 in June, when he dropped a unanimous nod to “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 9 winner James Wilks at the General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A two-time national champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Sobotta has delivered all eight of his wins by knockout, technical knockout or submission. He has been finished only once in 11 professional appearances.

A showdown pairing former middleweight King of Pancrase Nate Marquardt with the world-ranked Yushin Okami will headline UFC 122, along with a middleweight duel between American Top Team’s Alessio Sakara and the resurgent Jorge Rivera. Two additional matches will round out the main card, as Krzysztof Soszynski meets Goran Reljic at 185 pounds and Dennis Siver locks horns with “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 9 finalist Andre Winner at lightweight.
