Tucker Lutz is the classic definition of a tweener or a fighter who, when he/she cuts down in weight sits pretty much equally between each weight class.

Lutz was the Shogun Fights Featherweight Champion in 2018 and the Shogun Fights Lightweight Champion in 2019. Lutz had missed weight in the fight prior to his featherweight title shot.

Tucker got his shot at the UFC in the form of two lightweight fights on the 2020 season of the Contender Series. Lutz scored unanimous decisions against Chase Gibson and Sherrard Blackledge before receiving a UFC contract.

Lutz made his UFC debut at 145lbs and was able to get the win against Kevin Aguilar in his most recent fight.

Lutz (5’8″, 72″) is just 27 years old, has a very stocky muscular build and will be a fighter for fans to watch as he attempts to make a name for himself in the UFC’s featherweight division. Lutz goes up against Pat Sabatini at UFC Vegas 43.
