Mitch Clarke spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Al Iaquinta at UFC 173. Check out the highlights:
On stopping his two-fight skid at UFC 161: "(Lose) two in a row, and you're gone (with a third). I thought, ‘Go out there and fight my heart out,' and I did, and I won. Now I get another opportunity."
On Iaquinta: "I think it's a good matchup. He's tough. I've been growing by leaps and bounds since the last fight. Are they putting me in with Edson Barboza? No – it's not an unwinnable kind of thing. I just have to show up game night and fight my fight, and I think it'll go well."
