Sadollah-Akiyama Set for Saitama

 
Moved from a Stockholm date in October against Nico Musoke, Amir Sadollah's return to the Octagon will now take place two weeks earlier on September 20 when the former Ultimate Fighter winner travels to Saitama, Japan to face another returning vet in Yoshihiro Akiyama.

On the sidelines since his September 2012 bout with Dan Hardy due to injury, Las Vegas' Sadollah is finally ready to get back to work, and he'll be in for a fight with fellow welterweight standout Akiyama, a three-time Fight of the Night winner who will be making his first start since February of 2012.
