UFC Ottawa: Dana White Praises “Bad Ass” Al Iaquinta Following Loss

Al Iaquinta has been at odds with the UFC and Dana White before, but following his loss to Donald Cerrone this weekend, White had nothing but praise for the rugged lightweight.

Iaquinta faced Donald Cerrone in the main event of Saturday’s card, and he ended up losing to “Cowboy” via unanimous decision. Although Iaquinta was bloodied by Cerrone’s striking assault, “Raging Al” kept coming until the final horn.

Well, since then, White shared out the comments below.

Congrats to @cowboycerrone on the impressive win last night and MUCH respect to the incredibly TOUGH and BAD ASS @aliaquinta for an amazing fight!!!! @espnmma

Now it will be interesting to see what comes next for Iaquinta. Prior to UFC Ottawa, he was ranked #4 in the 155 division.
