Late Tuesday night, a welterweight bout between Amir Sadollah (Pictured) and Jorge Lopez was added to UFC 143. The event takes place February 4th in Las Vegas, Nevada, most likely inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Lopez made his big league debut in September at “UFC Fight Night 25.” Wanderlei Silva’s protege had his 10-fight winning streak snapped by dropping a unanimous decision to Justin Edwards.
