A mouth-watering clash featuring top lightweight contender Kevin Lee and Al Iaquinta is set for UFC on Fox 31 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee this weekend.
This fight is a rematch of their first fight which took place back in 2014 at UFC 169, a fight which Al Iaquinta beat Lee via unanimous decision. However, Kevin Lee is a whole another animal now and back then he fought Al in his UFC debut. Although he has n herculean task ahead, it hasn’t stopped him from voicing his opinion about other fighters in the division.
Al Laquinta talked to UFC on Fox crew and has said that he wants to remind Kevin Lee how it feels to lose.
“It’s a different fight, he has come a long way, I have come a long way, so I am excited to go out there and show everybody what I have been working on,”
“I made him humble, I still remember the look on his face after he lost that fight,”
“He felt something, he has never felt before and I think he is going to feel the same thing this time that he hasn’t felt since that day,”
“So he has won a lot of fights, but he has forgotten about that fight and I am going to remind him of that.”
