A welterweight that’s been on a hot streak looks to keep ascending the rankings as Vicente Luque fights Randy Brown tonight at UFC Fight Night on ESPN live from Las Vegas and UFC Apex.
Luque is 18-7-1 as an MMA professional, with an impressive 11-3 record in the UFC and the #12 ranking in the division. The 28-year-old Brazilian is more of a standup specialist than most of his countrymen, with a 5.66 strikes per minute average against just 0.73 takedowns per three rounds. He’s won seven of his last eight, and likely cracks the Top 10 in a budding division with a victory.
Brown is 12-3 overall with 10 career stoppages. The Jamaican won Performance of The Night in his last outing for a second round triangle choke of Warlley Alves. “Rudeboy” lands 3.41 strikes per minute against 0.95 takedowns per 15 minutes, and has been in the UFC since January of 2016.
