Lightweight competitor Al Iaquinta returned to the UFC after a lengthy absence at UFC Fight Night 108, where he knocked out Diego Sanchez.
Following his successful return to the promotion, the lightweight went on a tirade against the UFC and it includes an F bomb against them as well.
The New York native feels that in the end, the UFC simply doesn’t get it.
“No one freaking gets it,” he said on The MMA Hour. “I’m the guy, I’m the man. I put in the work. I’m the guy. I’m the f*cking man. Dana White doesn’t get it. Sean Shelby is starting to get it. … They don’t get it yet.”
Iaquinta did appear backstage at UFC 211, but nothing of note came from his meeting with UFC officials.
Snoop Dogg, who performed a concert at the UFC fighters retreat, was also on the receiving end of a lashing from Iaquinta.
“F*cking pay me,” Iaquinta said. “I don’t give a f*ck about Snoop Dogg. Pay me. I’m hurt, I’m tired. F*ck you. F*ck you, how about that?”
Although his next fight has yet to be announced, the lightweight star recently stated on Twitter that he would like to fight Tony Ferguson.
