LAS VEGAS – After his first-round decimation of short-notice UFC newcomer Jalin Turner, Vicente Luque knows exactly what he wants.
Luque (14-6-1 MMA, 7-2 UFC) shut down Turner (7-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) with a first-round knockout at UFC 229 this past Saturday. All seven of Luque’s UFC wins have come by finish. And now he wants to take on his biggest name yet: Jorge Masvidal (32-13 MMA, 9-6 UFC), who has been out for nearly a year.
“I’m going to be waiting,” Luque said. “Whoever they want to give me – Masvidal would be a good name. I like that guy – I like his style of fighting. I think me and Masvidal would put on a great show. I’m going to go in to strike, he’s going to come in to strike. If he wants to fight … I’m ready.”
UFC 229 took place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
