An Ultimate Fighter winner, two knockout artists, and a “New York Bad Ass” have been added to November 21st’s UFC 106 card at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, adding even more firepower to the event which features the heavyweight title fight between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin and the return of Tito Ortiz against Mark Coleman.

In welterweight action, The Ultimate Fighter season seven winner Amir Sadollah will look to bounce back from his August loss to Johny Hendricks when he squares off against former UFC middleweight contender Phil “The New York Bad Ass” Baroni, who will enter the Octagon for the first time since February of 2005.

Also competing in the 170-pound weight class on November 21st will be Ben “Killa B” Saunders and “The Irish Hand Grenade”, Marcus Davis. It will be Davis’ first bout on US soil since he submitted Pete Spratt at UFC 69 in April of 2007, having gone 5-2 in UFC bouts overseas.

Lightweight prospects George Sotiropoulos and Jason Dent have been added to the UFC 106 card as well, with both trying to keep their winning streaks intact in an important 155-pound match.

Tickets for UFC 106 are on sale now.
