This morning’s early weigh in’s kick off this fight weekend for UFC 223. With a day yesterday filled with absurdity and unexpected injuries, the card loses a few of it’s fighters. Those unaware Connor McGregor and his entourage attacked a bus transporting some of the card’s fighters following UFC 223’s media day. Visit our friends over at MMA Fighting for the full story. Two people not effected by yesterday’s craziness were Paul Felder and Al Iaquinta, which means it’s almost time to rock and roll. Both light weights weighed in this morning during the early weight in’s, Iaquinta (155.2) and Felder (155).
The thoughts around this fight we’re that it had “Fight of the Night” written all over it. While an intriguing match up with both Iaquinta and Felder being heavy handed, if Iaquinta sticks to his game plan he’s trying to just “make it look easy”. Fight of the night can generally mean you went to war with an opponent for three back and fourth, hard fought, bloody rounds. Iaquinta who’s been in his fair share of wars will look to go in and not only dominate, but do so quickly and efficiently. With that being said if the fight becomes the back and fourth match up many think it has the potential to, the always prepared Iaquinta will be ready to push the action.
Al Iaquinta (155.2)
Paul Felder (155)

He was ridiculed, accused of complaining, and even being a “cry baby”. Yet today Al Iaquinta can say he was able to do something many other fighters haven’t had the fortitude to do. To stand their ground when they aren’t being properly compensated. Not knowing their worth for the physical and mental strain on their bodies, and all the other risks that come between training to when those cage doors close. Iaquinta’s original contract was ripped up and replaced with a newly structured four fight deal. Continue Reading
