After adding three consecutive wins and reaching fourth place in the UFC welterweight rankings, Vicente Luke was looking forward to the definition of his next fight in Dana White’s outfit. And earlier this week, the event finally set the date for the Brasiliens’ next appointment: on April 16, Vicente will face American Belal Muhammad in the main event of UFC Fight Night in the United States.
And it’s a rematch between the two, with welterweight finishing fifth against fourth. In 2016, Vicente defeated Muhammad with a knockout victory in the first round. Muhammad is 33 years old and has a record of 20 wins and three losses to his name. The son of Palestinians, American was born and raised in Chicago, United States. Belal is not sure a fighter. In a completely different way from Vicente, the American left much of his victory in the hands of the judges.
Out of 11 UFC victories, Remember the Name won nine by referee’s decision. Like Vicente, Muhammad is having a good time in the UFC: he has six wins and one no contest.
Vivi Araujo had a definite fight against Alexa Grasso for last weekend, but an elbow injury forced the Brasiliens out of the fight. But the Brasilia fighter did not last long without an opponent: the UFC confirmed American Andrea Lee as Vivi’s next opponent.
The two will also face-to-face in the US on May 14. In the women’s flyweight, the Cerrado MMA fighter is in sixth place and Lee is in eighth. The American holds a record of 13 positive results and five losses. If Vivi comes from defeat, then KGB comes from two consecutive victories. In his last two victories, Lee won his matches via submission and TKO.
