Iaquinta: I always win later rounds

by John Morgan and Dann Stupp | source: mmajunkie.com
 

Iaquinta needed to win the final two rounds to do it, but as he told MMAjunkie.com, slow starts are nothing new

"That's what it is – slow starts," he said of the lightweight fight, which aired live from the UFC Training Center in Las Vegas. "Those are my rounds. My rounds are two and three. I've never really lost the second and third rounds."

"He definitely hurt me at one point, but I got my wits back, and I threw a right hand right away, and I caught him," he said. "I think it kind of canceled each other out.

"But yeah, he definitely hurt me there for a bit."

 It was a good fight, Al was standing right in front of Jury with his hands down eggin him to do something besides running away. Al almost got that spladle wrestling move and was going foward and pressing. Jury tried stealing rounds with late takedowns but he was getting tagged with strikes to much during the round. Jury was much longer than i thought, but he did not live up to his nickname Fury.

More like "I always lose the first 2 rounds, the judge's totally fuck up the decision and then I decide to start fighting."

I really liked the fight... hard to call any fight where the underdog wins boring.

It was a really good fight. If that was boring I'd hate to see what you think of Shamrock/Severn 2.Both guys were throwing to end the fight pretty regularly, and both connected pretty big several times. Jury hurt his chances by backing up too much. I think one of the things you see from the guys on the show is that they tend to get stuck in a rut with their techniques. Instead of just sitting down and swinging, after landing something - shoot in. Ditto if you get tagged. Make it an MMA fight instead of kickboxing with little gloves. Mix it up. Their day-in-day out training probably messes with their sensibility.

Wasn't a thriller, but that wasn't Iaquinta's fault...dude was pushing forward and putting pressure on the whole time, hard to make it exciting when your opponent is playing the "evasive" game. I was super happy to see Iaquinta get a third round and not have Jury rewarded for the meaningless last-second takedown at the end of the 2nd
