In his first fight back from a two year hiatus, Al Iaquinta showed that he is still a force to be reckoned with at lightweight.

Having been in prolonged negotiations with the UFC, and generally feeling under-appreciated by the promotion, Iaquinta didn’t take long to prove his point.

Facing Diego Sanchez in the co-main event of UFC Nashville, Iaquinta hit Sanchez with a right hand in the first round that absolutely folded the original Ultimate Fighter in half.

Following the fight, Iaquinta was his usual self, and despite the victory was fairly non-committal in regards to a return.

“I dunno, I’m selling houses,” Iaquinta said. “If you’re selling houses hit me up.”
