    Curious to know if there is any Italian or Italian/American fighters in the UFC or good enough to be in the UFC?

    I know they have a history with boxing and I remember Alessio Sakara having decent boxing and put on exciting fights...

    Edit: Matt Serra is Italian yes? What about Weidman?

    Al Iaquinta might have some Italian in him. Maybe Chinese too, from around the corner.

    There's plenty of fighters with italian descent in the ufc

    alessio sakara, corassini, sam sicilia, al iaquinta, guida, etc

    I think Sakara is the only "true" italian though, idk

    Weidman is Irish-German. Serra is a good pick though. Shogun is part Italian.

    Iaquinta, Rizzo, Fioravanti, John Alessio, Baroni, Clementi, Sicilia, Pellegrino..
