Al Iaquinta doesn’t like how his last scheduled fight was handled.
Iaquinta was set to take on Paul Felder on Dec. 2 inside Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. The bout was going to be featured on the UFC 218 card.
“I don’t know if that makes any sense. You beat a guy like Paul Felder. He’s unranked. We were working on a contract. I felt kind of rushed with the whole, I just … I was under the gun, I felt like and to negotiate a new contract in a day. I just didn’t like the way those things were going. I felt like I was in an unadvantageous position no matter what the scenario was. Even to win the fight, even if I did on a quick knockout again, I don’t get bonuses. The contract what it was, the amount of time that I would’ve had to put in, the time that I would’ve had to take away from the other things I was doing … just all roads led to just hold off, keep doing what I’m doing.”
