Al Iaquinta made it all the way to the end of TUF 15 before falling in the finals to Michael Chiesa, but he’s an all-around ass-kicker nonetheless. With solid wrestling and heavy hands, the Long Island native has since sent Ryan Couture packing, and he put a hurting on UFC Fight Night 30 foe Piotr Hallmann. Next on his plate: Octagon newcomer Kevin Lee, at UFC 169 on February 1 in Newark, N.J.
How are Lee’s chances against Iaquinta? Take a look at this minor league bout Iaquinta had on June 12, 2009 at Ring of Combat 25, then decide for yourself.
