Two bouts have been added to the February 7th UFC Fight Night 17 event at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mac Danzig will be facing Josh Neer, and Nick Catone will finally be squaring off against Amir Sadollah. The two were initially slated to compete at UFC 91, however Sadollah was forced to withdraw due to injury.

“I was training about three months for the fight very hard and was definitely disappointed about not getting in there and making my debut,” Catone stated on iguillotine.com. “But it looks like Feb 7, we’re going to get it on at the Ultimate Fight Night 17.”

Just four days prior to their scheduled bout, Sadollah, last season’s winner of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, suffered a leg infection and immediately had to pull out.

Danzig, season six’s “TUF” champ, confirmed his participation on the card via his MySpace page. The MMA veteran is 2-1 inside the Octagon, however is coming off of a loss to Clay Guida in his last outing at Fight Night 15 back in September.
