Amir Sadollah, of Team Combat in Richmond, VA, attended J.R. Tucker High School (Richmond, VA) and later attended Jay Sargeant Reynolds Community College. His interest in mixed martial arts was spawned by a friend who was training in the sport at the time. Initially Amir viewed it solely as a way that he could stay in shape. Oddly enough, his love for the sport began to grow after he accepted a job as a surgical tech in the operating room at VCU Healthsytems where he noticed the similarities in personality between a surgeon and a fighter and it put into perspective the drive needed to succeed at one’s craft.

Now, realizing his potential, Amir focuses full-time on training and improving his all-around game. The 27-year-old amateur kickboxer impressed Dana White, along with “The Ultimate Fighter” producers, during the open-workout in Newark and he earned a shot in the house.

Amir admires the fighting style and demeanor of Mirko Cro Cop and hopes to emulate his idol while training on “The Ultimate Fighter.” A devoted MMA fanatic, Amir rarely is away from the gym, although he admits that recently he has taken up golf.


The first ever Winner of Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter” to enter the show with an 0-0 pro record. Amir Sadollah won the hearts of the growing MMA community and the respect of his coaches. He worked to silence all the skeptics and convincingly won all of his fights including a second decisive win against the heavily favored CB Dollaway.
