I use something called Movie Edit Pro:-

Or Sony Movie Studio HD is very cheap:-

But Ive no experience with the Sony software.

All video clips have certain information that's important:-

Size : the resolution of the video clip.
Codec : the method used to compress and playback the video.
frame rate : the speed the video plays back. This is usually about 24fps ( frames per second )

Do you know anything about this stuff at all? You may end up with several clips with different properties so some good editing software is essential if you want to get them all to stick together without all kinds of discrepancies with the video and sound.
I have Sony Vegas purchased.

Okay so I managed to get the 3 second clip that I wanted and I saved it as its own file. Is this correct? After I am done getting a few clips how do I put them all on one time line if they are different files?

Not used vegas, but i imagine its as simple as dragging the file straight onto one of the tracks.

in sony vegas you can just import the whole video file(the entire fight whether it be 15 mins or an hour) then when u drag it to the timeline u can cut the parts out that u do not want to leave just the 3 second clip there on the timeline. then u assemble the cmall clips together in the correct order. at no time do u need to trim a whole fight clip down to 3 seconds and then save that 3 second clip as a new file. IT IS NOT NECESSARY (but if u have already done that then just import that 3 second clip file and drag it onto the timeline.

if u were to save all of the small clips to new files you would be just taking up more time... but it wont hurt anything.

The above is good advice. If you have a whole fight, its always better to stick the whole thing into Vegas and do the trimming there. This way, the original fight file stays as it is, and all the cut info is stored in the Vegas project file... rather than you having to work with lots of smaller files.

Thanks, so I figured that out and now I am looking for cool effects to add to a MMA video.

Any ideas?
