To all my fans,
I really appreciate all the support you have sent my way and I am so sorry I am not able to fight this weekend. I trained harder for this than any other fight in my life and I was looking forward to this more than you know.

It started on friday with a small mark on my leg. I immediately went to the doctor and he gave me medication and told me if it got worse to go to the hospital. Well, it got worse and on Sunday I went in and have been here ever since. I am hoping they will discharge me by Thursday.

I am very sorry if I disappointed anyone. A lot of work by a lot of people went into this. For it to end with something totally out of my control makes it difficult to swallow. I will be back in the gym as soon as possible and will be ready to fight as soon as Joe Silva can get me back in.

I’d like to thank my coaches, trainers, SuckerPunch, fans and sponsors (TapouT, Sprawl, THQ/UFC Undisputed 2009 and for their support. Nobody is more disappointed than me. I appreciate everything everyone put into this and can only look forward to getting back in the octagon as soon as possible.

    I am looking forward to watching you fight. I think you are a good fighter with a lot of potential. I also like your chilled out and joker personality. It’s refreshing to see a talented fighter who is not a primadonna. The only thing about you fighting at middleweight is that the michael jordan of MMA is in your weight division (anderson silva) but by the time you get a title shot he might be retired (i hope not). A fight that would be really cool is you and Bisping in the UK. I can see you submitting bisping with an arm bar.

    Take care and keep posting or replying by email lol
    I am actually going to be at UFC 92 and that should be awesome (my first MMA event and first time in Vegas).

    Mr Sadollah, don’t give up! You’ve got a good future and lots of potential I think. Keep fighting, keep winning, I’d love to see you work your way to fighting Anderson Silva!
    Sorry to hear about your leg, rest well and get well soon.
