Bless up Matt Serra and Ray Longo. From the comedy duo/MMA coaches who brought you Serra over GSP and Weidman over Silva, they almost got Al Iaquinta over Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223.
Not really but it was close thanks to the corner advice of Serra and Longo. With less than 24 hours to prep, the deck was stacked for Team Iaquinta.
Strong Island Realty brought it and in part due to the words of wisdom spouted by Serra and Longo. Listen into the corner of round four, where Al had his best run of the fight.
