Vicente Luque, you are an animal! In the first bang-bang thriller of UFC 249, the Brazilian welterweight waged an all-out battle with Niko Price that didn't skimp out on the blood. Violence was in great supply as these two welterweights went back and forth, and though the Octagon doctor put a stop to the fight when a cut around Price's eye got dangerously big, that shouldn't take a thing away from the savagery we saw on display. Luque deserved his victory, with this outrageous left hook pretty much sealing the deal:
Oh. My. GOODNESS. That was pure pain, and you've got to hand it to Price for not losing consciousness straight away -- or losing his head entirely.
Life doesn't feel quite right without big-time UFC pay-per-views, which makes tonight's even in Jacksonville, despite the lack of fans, something special. Thank you, Mr. Luque, for packing all this heat!
