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.
