Al Iaquinta Looks Up To Chris Weidman


Al Iaquinta went up against Ryan Couture at UFC 164 last night, scoring his first official UFC win in convincing fashion. Couture moves to 0-2 in the UFC, and the future is now looking un certain for the son of Hall of Famer Randy Couture. Iaquinta looked dominant in his performance at 155, utilizing his power strikes very efficiently.

Iaquinta trains out of the Serra-Longo camp with UFC Middleweight champion Chris Weidman, something that he claims gives him great motivation. With the win, Iaquinta pulled himself out of a two fight losing streak, including submission defeats to Michael Chiesa and Pat Audinwood.
