"Ragin" Al Iaquinta lived up to his nickname in his last UFC fight as he expressed his displeasure with the crowd's booing during his post-fight interview.

But, it was him in the post-fight interview, not his opponent, which means he won the fight -- a split decision over Jorge Masvidal at UFC Fight Night in Fairfax, Virginia, earlier this month.

He'll have his chance to possibly address the crowd again on July 15 in San Diego. The fight was announced after UFC 186 on Saturday night.

Iaquinta, from Wantagh, will fight Bobby Green in a bout between two top-15 lightweights at UFC Fight Night. Iaquinta (12-3-1, 7-2 UFC) is on a four-fight win streak, including three straight stoppages leading into the Masvidal.

Green (23-6, 4-1) had won eight straight fights (including four in Strikeforce) before losing a unanimous decision to Edson Barboza last November.
