Vicente Luque vs. Niko Price – UFC

UFC Florida Fighter Niko Price vs.Vicente Luque

Luque (12-6-1 MMA, 5-2 UFC) submitted Niko Price (11-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and now has stoppages in all five of his UFC victories. He caught Price with a brilliant D’Arce choke almost out of nowhere.Vicente Luque needed to get back in the win column, and he did so with some authority.

The welterweight bout closed out the preliminary card of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 119 card at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. The main card aired on FS1 following prelims on FS2 and UFC Fight Pass.

The 25-year-old New Jersey-born Brazilian, who successfully rebounded from a decision loss to Leon Edwards with Saturday’s victory, is now on a 5-1 run – and all five of the victories have come via stoppage. Like he did against Price, who tapped out from a second-round D’Arce choke, Luque is now anxious to swipe someone else’s momentum.

Namely, he wants undefeated Darren Till (16-0-1 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC) who scored a signature career victory after topping perennial contender Donald Cerrone via first-round TKO in UFC Fight Night 118’s headliner a week ago.

“I want to get the best strikers in the division,” Luque said. “I believe Darren Till is a guy who’s doing awesome, and he has beautiful striking. I feel like a fight with me and him, that’s going to be awesome. Also, Cerrone, (Jorge) Masvidal – those guys are big names. But Till? I think Till will be an exciting fight.”

Why?

“He’s a great striker,” Luque said. “He’s a long guy. He knows how to move well. I want to test myself against a guy like that. … Now I’m ready to face a top guy like that.”
