Cross your fingers! If all goes well August 8th will be Amir’s long awaited return to the Octagon. After facing a run of bad luck since his win against CB Dollaway that crowned him The Ultimate Fighter for season seven and earning him the “six figure contract”, Amir looks to put the injuries and bad luck behind him as he faces the undefeated Johnny Hendricks (5-0).
While many fighters would focus solely on healing up, Amir has pushed himself to become a better fighter. Moving to a more natural weight of 170 pounds, Amir has been training with Forrest Griffin and Wanderlei Silva in Las Vegas and has recently returned from an intensive Muay Thai “vacation” in Holland. The fighter that won millions of fans around the world with his down to earth approachability and quirky sense of humor will return to show the world why he is The Ultimate Fighter.
