Mike Ricci, who finished second on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter, is ready to answer the call of Al Iaquinta if UFC officials want to make the match.

Iaquinta was the runner-up earlier in 2012 on TUF, but was forced to the sidelines with an injury after his loss to Mike Chiesa. Iaquinta, who trains out of Serra-Longo, is 5-2-1 in his career.

Ricci (7-3) was topped by Colton Smith in his finale. He has posted a 3-3 mark in his last six fights overall.
