We wish Rocky Balboa would’ve acted like this way at the end of Rocky. Al Iaquinta had a crazy 24 hours leading to the main event of UFC 223. Crazy enough for New York state appointed judge’s to gift Iaquinta a decision over Khabib Nurmagomedov?

Just a bit outside. So close, yet so far Al.
Iaquinta’s inner monologue while Bruce Buffer read the UFC 223 main event decision was unintentionally the funniest moment of the night. UFC 223 was a huge cluster fuck, so why couldn’t the Fight Gods look down and smile at Al Iaquinta one more time? Maybe next time Al, maybe next time.
