UFC on FOX 31 Results: Al Iaquinta Batters Kevin Lee for Five Rounds, Takes Decision

He was a runner-up on a season of TUF, and most recently lasted longer against Khabib Nurmagomedov than Conor McGregor did. That’s right, I’m talking about Al Iaquinta, who gets to headline the final UFC event on FOX opposite Kevin Lee.

Iaquinta beat Lee by decision back in 2014. But since then, Lee’s pretty much smoked everyone (except for Tony Ferguson), while Iaquinta has become a real estate agent (no, seriously). However, “Ragin’ Al” is still tough as nails, as evidence by his fight against Khabib, and still somewhat relevant.

How does this final fight on FOX go? Well, let’s just say that Iaquinta is a boss on the feet, and has no problems eating jabs if he can put that cross upside Lee’s head. In no time, Lee is fighting while moving backwards, throwing kicks and punches that land occasionally but seem to do nothing to stop Ragin’ Al from stalking him like a hunter.

Twice Lee gets Iaquinta down and takes his back. However, both times see Iaquinta defend against the choke and escape.

It’s likely even going into the fifth round, but when Iaquinta finally stuffs Lee’s takedown, and continues beating his face into putty…. well, let’s just say that Iaquinta deserved every bit of that unanimous decision.

TUF 28 Finale Results: Kamaru Usman Batters Rafael dos Anjos for Decision, Takes His Mojo

Since winning his season of TUF, Kamaru Usman has transformed into the rarest beast of all: The TUF winner who doesn’t suck. Going into the TUF 28 Finale last night, he was 8-0, and he faced his toughest test yet in the form of former lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos.

Holy crap did Usman beat RDA up.

For five rounds, the former champ was slinging heat and going for things like kimuras and whatnot – you know, all of Dos Anjos’ usual slickness. But Usman, as he’s wont to do, shut him down. By the final round, Usman was just punching him to pieces.

Maybe the fact that RDA is getting old played a factor. Size definitely influenced things. But all those things aside, Usman was Mr. Smash, and RDA was his hapless victim.

Afterwards, Dana White made noise like Usman could face champ Tyron Woodley, despite Colby Covington allegedly being next in line. I don’t know, I like Usman’s chances.

He’s definitely a badass.
