Al Iaquinta vs. Paul Felder Verbally Agreed to Meet at UFC 218 in Detroit
A new lightweight fight is in the works as Al Iaquinta is expected to face Paul Felder on Dec. 2 in Detroit at UFC 218.
Sources close to the matchup confirmed that verbal agreements are in place for the fight although bout agreements have not been inked at this time.
Iaquinta is expected to make his return in December while riding a five-fight win streak in arguably the UFC’s deepest division.
Assuming the matchup is made official, Iaquinta vs. Felder joins a loaded UFC 218 card that also includes the featherweight title fight between Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar in the main event as well as Alistair Overeem vs. Francis Ngannou and Eddie Alvarez vs. Justin Gaethje as well.
