Fresh off a fairly successful season on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 16, Mike Ricci will be looking to bounce back quickly from his loss in the finals to Colton Smith. He's taken to twitter to call out the runner up of TUF's preceding season, Al Iaquinta, for a lightweight fight at UFC 158, which is set to take place in Montreal this March.

Up until the finals of their respective seasons on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Mike Ricci and Al Iaquinta were having a lot of success, pushing through their competition. Both came in as favorites for the finale, but neither was able to perform to expectations, as they both came up short once fight time came.

Now, just one month removed from his defeat at the hands of Colton Smith at the TUF 16 Finale, Mike Ricci has taken to twitter to call out his fellow TUF runner-up

I'd be more impressed if some of these guys called out non-TUF fighters.

Lets see if he can actually back it up this time.
Thought he would actually call out someone good, guess not.

I think Iaquinta would win this fight. Ricci is better off fighting Freakshow for a win

Ricci could be asking for too much. Iaquinta beat Tuck and Myles Jury.. He;s solid in my book.

The Ricci hype died back when Curran starched him in Bellator.
