Tag: UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier
The UFC on Fuel TV 3 weigh-ins took place, today, at the Patriot Center on the campus of George Mason University, in Fairfax, VA. All 24 fighters crossed the famed UFC weigh-in stage and all were able to successfully make-weight. So, all fights are green lighted for tomorrow night on Fuel TV.
Aaron Simpson was the fighter of choice to appear at the UFC on Fuel TV 3 pre-weigh-in Q&A. Simpson, the Arizona native, was quite entertaining and very engaging with the Fairfax crowd, even though he was working off only 4 hours of sleep.
After winning Season 7 of The Ultimate Fighter, Amir Sadollah (5-3) has had his share of peaks and valleys. In his first fight after TUF, and also his first fight at Welterweight, Amir lost via controversial TKO to Johny Hendricks in just twenty-nine seconds of the first round. Fortunately for him, he was able to bounce right back just three months later and pick up a decision victory over Phil Baroni in a very one-sided fight. Two months after that, he was right back in The Octagon again and picked up another tough decision victory over Brad Blackburn and it seemed like Amir was back in his groove.
