Iaquinta Heading to Vegas to Face Clarke

Lightweight up and comers Iaquinta and Clarke meet at UFC 173

With his teammate Chris Weidman already in the UFC 173 main event against Vitor Belfort, Long Island will have another representative in the Octagon on May 24 in Las Vegas, as rising lightweight star Al Iaquinta has verbally agreed to put his three fight winning streak on the line against Canada's Mitch Clarke.

Clarke is coming back to the Octagon for the first time since a UFC 161 victory over John Maguire last June, while Iaquinta is making a quick return to action following his UFC 169 win over Kevin Lee in February.
