Luque and Muhammad first fought back in 2016 at UFC 205, with Luque winning by first-round knockout. Since that fight, Luque has gone on to establish himself as one of the very best welterweights in the world, amassing a 10-2 record and climbing to No. 5 in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings. Currently riding a four-fight win streak, Luque finds himself on the cusp of a title shot, and a win over Muhammad could line him up for a title eliminator next.
Similarly, Muhammad has also excelled since his first fight with Luque, amassing a 10-1 record with one no-contest, and climbing to the No. 6 spot in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings. Currently on a seven-fight unbeaten streak, Muhammad hopes to avenge his previous loss and put himself into the welterweight title picture with a win tonight.
