Al Iaquinta’s Christmas list takes shots at Kevin Lee, UFC television deal and fighter pay

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Iaquinta vs Sanchez Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

According to Al Iaquinta’s unique Christmas list, he didn’t ask for much, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight contender unveiled his wants all while taking shots at matchmaker’s the promotions payroll and United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA).

“Raging” Al, ladies and gentleman, the gift that keeps on giving.

Iaquinta hasn’t had the best relationship with the promotion, despite the fact that he’s one of the most successful 155-pound fighters in the division when he actually gets a fight. Al -- who is on a five-fight win streak — most recently beat the brakes of Diego Sanchez earlier this year (see it), which was his first fight in two years after a contract dispute forced him to the bench.

As for when he’ll return next, that’s a bit unclear at the moment, as an injury forced him out UFC 218 earlier this month. But since he dropped Kevin Lee’s name on his Christmas list, I’m sure that’s a gift many fight fans wouldn’t be opposed to receiving.
