It looks like Chris Weidman won’t be the only Serra Longo fighter fighting on the UFC 173 card. Late Wednesday night it was announced that Iaquinta(8-2-1, 3-1 UFC) will take on Mitch Clarke (10-2, 1-2 UFC) on the under card of Weidman’s middle weight title fight against Vitor Belfort. The fight will take place on Memorial Day weekend, Saturday May 24th at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Iaquinta comes off of yet another impressive win at UFC 169 against Kevin Lee, showcasing his impressive skill set and durability throughout the fight. “Raging Al” comes into the fight riding a 3 fight win streak and looks to continue that run against Mitch Clarke.
