Long Island is going to make yet another appearance on the TUF house. Dennis Bermudez, who trains out of LIMMA, went to the finale last season, and now Al Iaquinta, the Long Island MMA standout will be joining the cast for this season's show, which is going to be broadcast live for the first time.
The 32 fighters for the TUF House were chosen from a field of more than 500 fighters. The show begins on March 9 at 9PM EST.
Iaquinta is a great fighter and a very entertaining individual. He's makes a great addition to the cast, and I would not be surprised to see him go all the way.
