    It wasn't so long ago that Al Iaquinta was interested in fighting Justin Gaethje but not anymore.
    The two lightweights were supposed to headline UFC Fight Night 135 last August, but the bout fell through roughly two months earlier, and Gaethje instead met - and defeated - James Vick.
    When Iaquinta scored an impressive unanimous-decision win over Kevin Lee last month at UFC on FOX 31, Gaethje issued an immediate callout. But the way Iaquinta sees it, that ship has sailed given his new standing in the 155-round division.
