Amir Sadollah (1-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC), a little-known fighter who navigated a surprising run to become the winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 7," expects to make his official post-"TUF" return at UFC 91.

Sadollah mentioned the return, but no possible opponent, during a guest visit at this past Saturday's Combat Sports Challenge 26 event.

UFC 91 takes place Nov. 15 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Ore.

Sadollah, who earned a place on the "TUF 7" cast through an open tryout, entered the reality show with just a 4-0 amateur record and no professional fights of which to speak.

However, the 28-year-old defeated former UFC fighter Steve Byrnes (6-1) in a newly created elimination round, Gerald Harris (8-2) in the opening round, Matt Brown (8-6) in the quarterfinals, C.B. Dollaway (7-1) in the semifinals, and after fellow finalist Jesse Taylor was kicked off the show, Sadollah again defeated Dollaway at the show's live finale back in June. All five victories came via knockout or submission.

Although a smaller middleweight, Sadollah, a former surgical technician, has mentioned no intentions of moving to the welterweight division.

I'm really excited about this guy's future fights. I feel that the sky is truly the limit for him.

for such an inexperience fighter, he had a great run during TUF.

IMO good choice to stay at 185 as it might be the heavier division,( compared to 170) but I see Middleweight as being the less stacked of the 2 divisions.
