The return of Al Iaquinta
Injuries and contract disputes have kept Wantagh's Al Iaquinta away from UFC's octagon for more than two years. He last fought on April 4, 2015, winning a split decision over Jorge Masvidal. That was the fourth straight win for the No. 14 ranked UFC lightweight, and the only one in that run that went the distance. Iaquinta returns at UFC Fight Night in Nashville on April 22, 2017, to face Diego Sanchez in the co-main event.
