Let’s try this again.

A Lightweight bout between Al Iaquinta and Paul Felder is in the works for the upcoming UFC 223 pay-per-view (PPV) event on April 7, 2018 in Brooklyn, New York according to Flo Combat.

The two talented 155-pound heavy-hitters were originally set to throw down at UFC 218 before an injury forced “Raging” out of action and to the sidelines. Felder (15-3) took on and defeated late replacement Charles Oliveira, but “The Irish Dragon’s” sights were always firmly set on Iaquinta.

Now, he will have a chance to finally get his hands on the Long Island banger in search of his fourth straight win inside the Octagon. Iaquinta (13-3-1), meanwhile, will look to earn his sixth straight win, as he hasn’t tasted defeat since 2014.

The winner can expect a huge boost on the official UFC rankings, while fight fans can expect to be treated to an entertaining war.
