It’s been a long road for Al Iaquinta to get where he is today. Spending countless amounts of hours training and learning. Learning how to take his game from wrestler, to kick boxer, to the well rounded fighter he is today. It wasn’t always easy, and it wasn’t always fun but it’s those grueling hours of training, and fights all over New Jersey, Delaware, and even Mexico that lead Iaquinta to where he is today. Now that hard work has brought him to the biggest stage with the biggest company in mixed martial arts. It’s time for years of hard work to finally pay off and let the fans watching the “Ultimate Fighter” this season see the hard work most of us have watched for years. Here’s some pictures from a few of Al’s amateur fights, just a reminder of where it all began before he started training with Serra/Longo.
