Vicente Luque is the fighter to watch at UFC Vegas 59.
On Saturday, UFC Vegas 59 takes place at the 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 facing off against Geoff Neal. Some fans are already saying that this fight could easily be the Fight of the Night.
Luque made his official debut for the UFC in July 2015. Over the course of his time in the UFC, he has won 14 fights and suffered only four losses. Luque has shown that not only is he a good striker, but he is also a good wrestler. He has truly earned his moniker of the “silent assassin.”
The last time he fought was in April 2022. He is coming off a loss to Belal Muhammad via unanimous decision. Muhammad got the best of Luque by taking advantage of winning the individual rounds. Luque has a chip on his shoulder as he looks to get back in the win column this weekend.
Vicente Luque is ready to go on Saturday following his most recent loss.
Looking ahead to Saturday, Luque is ready to go against 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 this fight. This is where he excels and gets a lot of his victories.
The main reason why Luque is the fighter to watch on Saturday is that he is hungrier than ever. Coming off 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 looks to continue to prove that this weekend.
