This Saturday UFC’s final card on FOX is set to go out with a bang. “Raging” Al Iaquinta (13-4-1, 8-3 UFC) will take on Kevin “The Motown Phenom” Lee (17-3, 10-3 UFC) in the main event LIVE from The Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. This will be the second matchup between Iaquinta and Lee who squared off back in 2014. Both fighters have evolved and shown improvement in different aspects of their fight games. Although matured, both a bit more established, polished and higher ranked, one thing hasn’t changed. Iaquinta and Lee very simply do not like each other. Expect to see the intensity that fuels off of that in the octagon on Saturday. Continue Reading
It’s a rematch that’s been some time in the making. On December 15th Al Iaquinta will take on Kevin Lee in the main event at The Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. The two fought for the first time at UFC 169 back in 2014 ending in a unanimous decision win for “Raging” Al.
There is no love loss between these two fighters. Many words have been exchanged back and fourth through Twitter as well as comments about the other during interviews. Neither have been shy in regards to their feelings for the other. Both have called for this fight to happen for a second time at certain points, now both will get their wish. Continue Reading

Although last night the focus was in Brooklyn for UFC 208, there was breaking news announced during the card for one of New York’s fan favorites. Serra Longo’s Al Iaquinta will make his return to the octagon at UFC Fight Night Swanson vs. Lobov. The fight will take place April 22nd Live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Tennessee. Iaquinta will take on veteran and Ultimate Fighter Season 1 alumni Diego “The Nightmare” Sanchez.
Back in July the UFC sold for an astronomical 4 billion dollars. Yet despite that, and with the new Reebok sponsorship deal in place, fighters aren’t seeing changes financially. One of those fighters happens to be ranked 13th in the lightweight division. Al Iaquinta has taken a stand, one that may help other martial artists fighting for the promotion put things into perspective. That these athletes putting their bodies on the line through training, and on fight night, are not being properly compensated or represented.
Today, Iaquinta made his decision well known. He would currently remain off the UFC 205 card in a contract dispute. UFC 205 is the first in New York, at the Worlds most Famous Arena Madison Square Garden. A card that just about every New York fighter is scratching and clawing to become a part of. For Iaquinta it’s become much more. It’s become making a long term life decision, and a moral decision. Over fighting in an arena he’s dreamt about fighting in since entering the sport. With the current deal in place if Iaquinta were to lose the fight, it would be “like fighting at MSG for free” He explained. Continue Reading
It appears fight fans and Iaquinta Nation may get to see Al Iaquinta back in the octagon sooner than expected. After a second opinion on his injured knee, the 155 pound stand out will avoid going under the knife to fix the damaged cartilage. Instead Iaquinta will undergo stem cell injections and plasma therapy. This will keep Iaquinta out for a significantly shorter amount of time, lining him up for a return at the new year.

Tonight I had planned to post a preview to what had the makings to be an incredible fight between Al Iaquinta and Gilbert Melendez. Unfortunately news broke late this afternoon that that exciting light weight bout wasn’t going to happen. Gilbert Melendez has tested positive for testosterone metabolites, present from an outside source. Melendez failed a urine test following his UFC 188 loss to Eddie Alvarez. The light weight has come clean admitting to his use of a banned substance, apologizing to fans and the UFC today. Melendez will be suspended for one year. Continue Reading
