Not every fight on a UFC card is going to contend for fight of the night.

"The Ultimate Fighter 7" winner Amir Sadollah and Jorge Lopez met in a bout curiously placed in the co-main event position at Tuesday night's UFC on Fuel TV 3 card in Fairfax, Va.

After 15 minutes without much action of note, in which neither man came close to finishing the fight, Sadollah came out on the right end of a split decision, taking two of three 29-28 scores.

With the win, perhaps the welterweight Sadollah, who's been saddled with injuries since winning TUF, is finally developing some momentum. He's now 6-3 and has won three of his past four. Lopez, a Wand Fight Club team member in Las Vegas, is 11-3, having dropped both of his UFC fights.
