Vicente Luque managed to score the biggest win of his career to date with a stunning showdown against Mike Perry at UFC Uruguay last night.
Luque has been quietly carving out a reputation for himself as one of the UFC’s most underrated prospects.
As a surging contender in the stacked welterweight division, Luque has been able to record wins over several notable fighters including Belal Muhammad, Bryan Barberena, and Niko Price.
One would have to assume that he will be lined up for a top-10 opponent after this latest showing – a truly dogged victory that displayed his grit and determination to their fullest.
In the end, the judges saw it as a split decision in favour of Luque – moving his UFC record to 10-2, with this fight, in particular, standing as a truly memorable feather in his cap.
What a WAR! 👊

Mike Perry’s nose was something to behold in the wake of the Fight Of The Night-winning showcase – something that stood as a cruel reminder of the physical toll that this sport can take on its participants.
