Al Iaquinta was a fairly sizable underdog in the UFC on FOX 31 main event, but came through with flying colors.
Iaquinta (14-4-1 MMA, 9-3 UFC) took a unanimous decision from Kevin Lee (17-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) in their rematch this past Saturday night to get back in the win column in the lightweight division about eight months after he fought champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on short notice – a move that truly got the division’s attention.
But now he likely really has it after taking the best of what Lee had to offer and beating him up a little for 25 minutes. He got a pair of 48-47 scores and a 49-46 from the judges at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. The main card aired on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
So just how far did Iaquinta climb in the division, and how far did Lee tumble?
This past weekend also saw a pair of Bellator events in Hawaii, and women’s flyweight champion Ilima-Lei Macfarlane (9-0 MMA, 8-0 BMMA) submitted Valerie Letourneau (10-7 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) to retain her belt.
What moves did Macfarlane make on the women’s 125-pound list, as well as the pound-for-pound chart?
