Thirty two fighters fought last night in Las Vegas for a chance to enter the TUF House on this season's The Ultimate Fighter. In a format depature, the fighters only had a single five minute round to make the statement that they deserved inclusion on the show. Al Iaquinta, from Wantagh, Long Island, a talented up and coming fighter who we've profiled here in the past, shined in his bout against Jon Tuck, winning by unanimous decision and moving into the Sweet Sixteen.
There are a lot of very talented fighters on this season's show, but I think that Iaquinta, out of the Serra-Longo camp, has a very good shot at winning it all. We'll track his progress right here as he advances throughout the season.
After his win, Iaquinta said:
"I worked really hard to get here and I'm happy and relieved to get the victory."
Here are the complete results of the fights last night.
