Joe Lauzon: 26th Right-Hand “Got In” From Al Iaquinta

ufc 183

Joe Lauzon knew what Al Iaquinta was going to do Saturday night in their UFC 183 main card bout.

And he did a good job of defending it – early on.

Iaquinta, a former Ultimate Fighter runner-up, earned a stoppage victory after landing a flurry of punches on Lauzon.

“All camp long we focused on stopping the overhand right,” Lauzon posted on Twitter Sunday after the fight. “I think I stopped the first 25 but the 26th through 35th got in. Dammit.”

Lauzon added that he is “sore but no injuries” and offered congratulations to Iaquinta for the win.
