Vicente Luque is a very dangerous man. He has amassed two performances of the night bonuses and three times received the fight of the night honors while in the UFC. Luque is never in a boring fight. After his stint on TUF, between 2015 and 2019, Luque won 9 of his 10 fights and he finished all 9 of his victories.

Vicente Luque is a very complete martial artist. He has skills in the grappling department as well as good striking abilities. But Luque’s striking has definitely been the skill that has shined the brightest during his stint in the UFC. Luque is, according to many, one of the most underrated fighters in the welterweight division. And a fighter that even though he is equipped with great striking skills, is never afraid to get into an absolute barn burner, much to the delight of many fans.
