Vicente Luque is the fighter to watch at UFC Vegas 59.
On Saturday, UFC Vegas 59 takes place at UFC APEX. The show will be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Thiago Santos and Jamahal Hill. However, there will be another big fight on the card, this one in the welterweight division. It will feature Vicente Luque opposite Geoff Neal. Some fans are already saying this fight could easily be the fight of the night.
Luque made his official UFC debut in July 2015. During his time in the UFC, he won 14 fights and suffered only four losses. Luque has shown that not only is he a good striker, but also a good wrestler. He truly earned his nickname “the silent assassin”.
The last time he fought was in April 2022. He just lost to Belal Muhammad by unanimous decision. Muhammad got the better of Luque by taking advantage of the victory in the individual heats. Luque has a chip on his shoulder as he looks to get back into the win column this weekend.
Vicente Luque is ready to leave on Saturday after his latest defeat.
Looking ahead to Saturday, Luque is ready to take on Neal.
Neal is no slouch either. His record is 6-2 and he is not to be taken lightly. Look for him to try to keep Neal in the pocket for this fight. This is where he excels and gets many of his victories.
The main reason Luque is the fighter to watch on Saturday is that he is hungrier than ever. After a loss in his last fight, his fight with Neal has to be one he can use as a rebound. Luque is not only taking the UFC by storm, but he is one of the best fighters in the welterweight division. He is looking to continue to prove it this weekend.
