The Octagon returns to Nevada for tonight’s UFC Vegas 51 event, a fourteen-bout fight card headlined by Vicente Luque vs. Belal Muhammad 2.
Luque (21-7-1 MMA) and Muhammad (20-3 MMA) originally collided at UFC 205 in November of 2016, with ‘The Silent Assassin’ emerging victorious by way of first round knockout.
Vicente Luque will enter tonight’s UFC Vegas 51 headliner sporting a four-fight winning streak, his latest being a submission victory over Michael Chiesa. All four of the Brazilian-American’s most recent wins have come via stoppage.
Meanwhile, Belal Muhammad was last seen in action this past December, where he scored a unanimous decision victory over Stephen Thompson to extend his undefeated streak to seven fights in a row.
UFC Vegas 51 is co-headlined by a middleweight bout featuring Caio Borralho (10-1 MMA) taking on Gadzh Omargadzhiev (13-0 MMA). Both fighters made their last appearances on Dana White’s Contender Series and will be looking to make a statement this evening.
