The greatest real estate agent on the MMA scene, ‘Raging’ Al Iaquinta is – as Khabib Nurmagomedov coined – a real Brooklyn gangster. The Long Island native is famed for his aggression in and out of the cage, originally making his name in the first live Ultimate Fighter season, and going on to win seven of his first nine bouts in the promotion. Contract disputes twice halted Iaquinta’s run to the top, spawning his real estate agency career, but he has not looked back since stepping in to face Nurmagomedov for the lightweight strap at the infamously hectic UFC 223 event. But Iaquinta’s loss in that championship bout was one of three unanimous decision losses in his last four fights, with a wealth of talented 155lbs prospects catching him up. A second win over Kevin Lee came in between those defeats though, and a record with victories over Joe Lauzon, Jorge Masvidal, and Diego Sanchez confirms the New Yorker’s status as a true fighter’s fighter.
