You know why this sport is awesome? Because for the most part, fighters are cool with each other – even after they knock each other out.

Just hours after overwhelming TUF 9 winner Ross Pearson with a storm of fists, Long Island native Al Iaquinta hit the bar with coaches Matt Serra and Ray Longo, where he had drinks with none other than Pearson himself. How cool is that? It’s way cool.
