The rematch between Vicente Luque and Belal Muhammad will headline this week's UFC Fight Night, as both men approach the welterweight title shot. The event will take place on Saturday, April 16, 2022 at the UFC Apex Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In 2016, Locke knocked out Mohammed in the first round, after which Brazil won 10 of the next 12 matches. Luque, 30, goes on to win four fights in this rematch, having had stoppages in each of them.
The title of the main card will be a welterweight showdown between No. 5 contestant Vicente Luque and No. 6 ranked Bilal Muhammad.
Mohammed, 33, meanwhile, has won his last six fights - no match against Leon Edwards - with his last four bouts.
The Americans (20-3, 1 no competition), ranked sixth at 170lbs, will be looking to jump to No. 5 Luque (21-7-1) in the welterweight division this weekend, while the Brazilian They will avenge their defeat.
Statistics show that Luque has a lot of power over Muhammad, who is proud of Muhammad's 20% to 52% knockout percentage.
Taking the co-main spot at the UFC Fight Night will be a middleweight clash between Caio Borralho and Gadzhi Omargadzhiev.
