I think they may be trying to protect Sadollah to a certain degree because he is entertaining enough and shows enough passion that he is an asset whenever he is on the undercard. And the majority of the MMA community, self righteous Sherdoggers nonwithstanding, considers Sadollah something of a likable fan favorite. However, his sheer lack of fighting experience is limiting what the UFC can do with him - as observant fans have pointed out, he's had to learn by trial and error on the UFC stage. One of the more memorable TUF moments was when he said that his win to get into the house was his first ever pro MMA victory.

Yeah, that's most likely

They always match new TUF contestants with old TUF contestants

I don't think winners are usually involved in those types of matches though

It is because he is likable enough to draw actual attention when placed on an undercard. And because Dana, for all his sports promoter type flaws, is fairly good at rewarding fighters who have gone out on a limb to earn it. And Sadollah does fit the bill there.

Locked in combat with Jorge Lopez until the end of time.
