Al Iaquinta Wiki Update Wiki

Al Iaquinta is a lightweight fighter currently signed to the UFC. He is a purple belt in Serra Jui Jitsu and trains out of Serra Longo Fight Team in Long Island, New York. He has held the Ring of Combat lightweight title. He was a finalist of The Ultimate Fighter: Live and won the "Fight of the Season" and "Kockout of the Season" bonuses. Of his six wins, four have been finishes including three T/KOs. 


Iaquinta began his pro MMA career fighting for the well known east coast promotion, Ring of Combat. All seven of his professional fights prior to his stint on TUF took place here. Iaquinta went 5-1-1 in this span, finishing in four of his five victories. His lone loss came to the hands of one time UFC fighter Pat Audinwood, who defeated Iaquinta via armbar. From there, Iaquinta would begin to build his name on season 15 of 'The Ultimate Fighter.' 


Iaquinta began to make a name for himself as a cast member of 'The Ultimate Fighter: Live,' where he was an exciting prospect in the UFC's lightweight division. After defeating future UFC signee Jon Tuck by decision to get into the TUF house, Iaquinta would become the first pick by coach Urijah Faber. He would pick up the first win for Team Faber in the season when he defeated Myles Jury by split decision. Considered an underdog by many in this fight, Iaquinta showed off all aspects of his game, even threatening Jury with a spladle, something not seen often in MMA. Both fighters would earn a bonus for this fight as it was voted "fight of the season". Iaquinta would later defeat teammate Andy Ogle in the quarterfinal, knocking the Brit out with a brutal elbow which later earned him "Knockout of the Season". He then won a decision over Vinc Pichel, catapulting him into the final against Michael Chiesa


Iaquinta would lose by first round rear naked choke to Chiesa in the finals but would still be signed to the promotion.He would get his next fight at UFC 164 when he would fight Ryan Couture. Iaquinta looked great en route to a unanimous decision victory, handing Couture his second loss for the UFC. He was linked to a fight with Anthony Njokuani at UFC Fight Night 30 in Manchester England, but an injury forced his opponent off the card. He instead faced Piotr Hallmann and was able to pick up a unanimous decision victory. He would also pick up a decision over Kevin Lee who was making his UFC debut at UFC 169, it would also be Lee's first loss.


Al laquinta then faced Mitch Clarke at UFC 173 on 24 May, 2014. Clarke was able to submit Al laquinta early in Round 2. This submission earned Clarke his first Performance of the Night.


Al laquinta got back into the win column when he faced Rodrigo Damm and defeated him via TKO late in the fight, at 2:26 in Round 3.  He would pick up two more TKO victories both in the second round over Ross Pearson and Joe Lauzon.
