Earlier this month, in a dominant performance, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone comfortably defeated former UFC lightweight title challenger Al Laquinta via unanimous decision at the Canadian Tire Center in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in the main event of UFC Fight Night 151.

Al Iaquinta: Donald Cerrone beat the sh*t out of me - Laquinta

Laquinta was completely outclassed by Cerrone and got tagged with hard shots all night. Cowboy also dropped Laquinta twice for the first time in his professional career. After the fight, Laquinta’s face was bloody and messy and the beating was so severe that he could hardly get backstage after the fight was over.

I broke my nose, I fractured my (right) orbital bone and had some deep bruising on my legs because of those kicks,” Iaquinta said on “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.”. “(The bruising from the kicks) was brutal. I’m just finally starting to be able to move around. It took its toll. That won’t happen again, that’s for sure.”

He hit me with a stiff jab that I don’t know if it broke my nose, it cut my nose open,” Iaquinta said. “He hit me with a bunch of shots so it could have been anyone. He did cut me open; that could’ve been the one. I think it was somewhere in the third round where he caught me in the eye, the third or the fourth round. It definitely affected my vision, and it definitely was something tough to fight through. But it is what it is. I train to be in those situations.”

I had every opportunity to win the fight, and I should’ve, but I didn’t,” Iaquinta said. “He beat the (expletive) out of me the way a veteran gets it done. He’s good, man. He’s good.” (H/T- MMA Junkie)

Meanwhile, LaQuinta wants to get back inside the Octagon again by the end of the year when UFC hosts its annual event at the Madison Square Garden in New York.
