A topless Al Iaquinta talkin' 'TUF'

From inside the TUF house, Al Iaquinta of Wantagh talks about being in the house and making it onto "The Ultimate Fighter: Live" on FX.

Al Iaquinta of Wantagh fought his way "into the house" for Season 15 of "The Ultimate Fighter" last Friday. Since the fights are airing live on FX this season for the first time, there is far less secrecy. Fighters on the show are allowed to use social media to talk with fans, where in the past when the show was taped weeks or months in advance, anyone who spilled the beans would face a multi-million dollar lawsuit.

Now, the UFC is releasing videos of the fighters while they're in the house. Crazy thing, this world of ours nowadays. Watch the video above to hear from Long Island's latest "TUF" contestant.
