Al Iaquinta

I know im a bit late but i just watched the final two episodes of this seasons tuf and i have to say iaquinta looked very very impressive.He pretty much dominated ogle with his accurate striking and heavy hands.
But he really impressed in his win over pichel,both fighters have good striking and heavy hands,but iaquinta just looked so slick and technical during the fight.He was throwing combinations,counter punching,throwing leg kicks at will,and showed some decent wrestling.You could see as the fight went on iaquinta was growing in confidence,his head movement was lighting quick,he even put his hands down,knowing pichel has the knockout power that could put him to sleep,this just shows the confidence and belief he has in his skills.I think he has a bright future.

Chiesa,how can you not like this guy.His striking his a bit suspect,but to beat this guy i think you have to literally kill him because he has a heart of a lion.I thought he was down and out a few times in that fight against vick,but this guy just keeps coming back,his wrestling and grappling skills are very good,and that's what he's used in this series.Once he gets the takedown,he looks very comfortable on the ground and i was surprised at how quick he finished vick.

Cannot wait for the finale!

Iaquinta has looked like the real deal from the start to me, in the uunlikely event Chiesa beats him (no doubt involving smothering him on the canvas) we'll still be seeing him in the UFC surely.

Agreed Iaquinta could have a decent future in the UFC.

Chiesa on the other hand doesn't look to have much potential to me, I think he'll lose he final and will probably get a few other fight before ultimately getting cut.

He deserved a lot of credit for getting to the final after his dad diying in the first week though.
