Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig has been forced out of his fight with Amir Sadollah due to a sternum injury suffered during during training camp. Former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ winner, James Wilks steps in with just three weeks remaining until fight night. UFC Fight Night 24 takes place on March 26th at the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. The event is headlined by Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Phil Davis in a light heavyweight tilt.

James Wilks became the ninth winner of the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ reality show after defeating DeMarques Johnson in impressive fashion with a first round rear naked choke. He has since lost two out of his last three fights, including defeats against Matt Brown and Claude Patrick. Wilks last victory came against Peter Sobotta at UFC 115 in June of last year.

Amir Sadollah made his first official mixed martial arts fight back in June of 2008 when he earned a first round armbar victory over CB Dollaway to become the seventh winner of the ‘Ultimate Fighter’. After that fight, Sadollah dropped to welterweight and has gone 3-2 in the division. He suffered a tough loss against Dong Hyun-Kim at UFC 114, but came back at UFC 122 to dominate Peter Sobotta.
