That wasn't worth the wait. The Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah endured nine months of injuries before making his return to the Octagon. And it took 29 seconds for him to suffer his first loss. It looked like a shaky stoppage. Johny Hendricks (pictured) drilled Sadollah with several nasty uppercuts. Down went the TUF 7 champ. Hendricks wailed away with several more shots standing over Sadollah but looked to miss on all but two. Before Sadollah could scramble to his feet, referee Dan Miragliotta stopped the fight at the 0:29 mark. Hendricks remains unbeaten at 6-0 and picks up his first UFC win.


Aaron Riley was robbed by a referee in Columbus at UFC 96. He didn't let it get to that point in Philadelphia. Riley, with 39 pro fights under his belt and a lot more size than Shane Nelson, dominated throughout to roll to a unanimous victory (30-27 on all cards).

Riley used solid boxing and muay thai to dictate pace throughout the fight. He also walked through most Nelson shots on the feet.
