Al Iaquinta and Paul Felder to Fight at Stacked UFC 218

Al Iaquinta

Max Holloway versus Frankie Edgar. Justin Gaethje versus Eddie Alvarez. Francis Ngannou versus Alistair Overeem. Henry Cejudo versus Sergio Pettis. Are you kidding? UFC 218 has quickly turned into a contender for Card of the Year, at least on paper, and the announcements aren’t even done yet. The latest scrap to be added to this monster event is Al Iaquinta taking on Paul Felder.  

Despite his love/hate relationship with the UFC, Al Iaquinta is on a five-fight win streak with his two latest wins over Diego Sanchez and Jorge Masvidal. Paul Felder has been enjoying some desk duties, but he’s on a two-fight win streak himself. This fight might not have too much baring on the state of the weltwerweight division, but it’s sure guaranteed to be an exciting fight. The fight was first mentioned after talking to Karyn Bryant about a certain someone, who just happened to retweet the cryptic tweet. Of course, that ended up being Al Iaquinta.
