UFC welterweight Amir Sadollah (2-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) is used to being the underdog.

In fact, even as Sadollah entered his UFC 106 contest with Phil Baroni, "The Ultimate Fighter 7" winner was being doubted by many MMA observers.

"I was happy with my performance but not over-pleased," Sadollah said. "I'm definitely a perfectionist. There were things I did well and things I want to improve on.

He needs to improve a little defensively imo. He got hit with some big shots by Baroni and seemed happy to keep taking them.

And Phil has absolutely no power following the 3 min mark of any fight. I wasn't shocked by the way Phil fought that fight but I think about halfway through the 2nd round I was seriously wondering how Amir must have absolutely no KO power either because he was able to hit him at any time, any angle, and with any weapon. At least we know his next opponent will have some endurance.
