Luque beats Price via 3rd round TKO

Vicente Luque and Niko Price meet at UFC 249 in a matchup of welterweights. We break down how the betting public is picking the fight.

Luque vs. Price results: Vicente Luque wins by TKO in the third round.

In a preliminary card welterweight bout, #13-ranked Vicente Luque takes on Niko Price as part of UFC 243 live from the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida this Saturday.

These two have fought before, as Luque stepped in as a last-minute replacement on October 28th, 2017. Despite only having 11 days to prepare for his opponent, Luque submitted Price via D’Arce choke in the second round.

Right now the odds favor a repeat of the result two-and-a-half years ago, with Luque -265 on the money line. But a repeat via submission comes with a better price of +250, while a knockout or TKO would pay just +150. Also 67% of the bets and 77% of the handle is on Luque on the money line, showing the respect he’s getting as the more veteran fighter with a more impressive resume.

And in a battle of two strikers, it’s no surprise the bettors don’t think this will go all three rounds: It’s 4 to 1 on your money if it lasts the maximum 15 minutes, but you’ll have to pay $4.55 to get back an extra dollar if you think it ends short.

These are the updated betting lines for Vicente Luque vs. Niko Price at UFC 249.
