Al Iaquinta has been heavily critical of the UFC,  since he knocked out Diego Sanchez last weekend, and Mike Perry is cautioning the lightweight.

Following Iaquinta’s win at UFC FN 108, he blasted the UFC for how much he’s getting paid, and for the fact he didn’t receive a fight night bonus. In addition, he told Dana White to “shut your f–king mouth”, for criticisms the UFC President made about UFC 208.

Perry, who also fought at UFC FN 108 and knocked out Jake Ellenberger, recently appeared on “The MMA Hour”. The powerful welterweight had this to say about Iaquinta’s headline grabbing statements (quote via MMA Fighting):

“You work hard for this, then conduct yourself properly. He said ‘f*ck you’ to the people who are setting this up for you. If you have a sour attitude towards these people who are giving you the opportunity people dream of, you need to fix your priorities.”

“I’m watching out for the UFC,” Perry added. “He can’t just be bad-mouthing people who are doing the same thing for me. I got their back too because they got mine.”

The win over Sanchez marked the first time Iaquinta had fought since April, 2015.
