UFC Fight Night: Luque vs. Dos Anjos is an intriguing matchup between two Brazilian-born fighters, Vicente Luque and Rafael Dos Anjos. This fight has a lot of potential to be an exciting clash between two experienced and talented mixed martial artists.
Luque (13-6-1), nicknamed “The Silent Assassin”, holds wins over some of the biggest names in the UFC such as Belal Muhammad, Niko Price, Bryan Barberena and Neil Magny. He currently stands at 8th on the rankings for welterweight fighters with a 5-2 record in his last 7 matches. He is known for his aggression inside the octagon and will look to finish this fight quickly by going straight for a knockout or submission victory from early on in the bout.
On the other side of things we have Rafael Dos Anjos (30-13), who was once one of most successful lightweights in all of MMA before moving up to welterweight where he has continued his success against high profile opponents like Kevin Lee, Michael Chiesa and Robbie Lawler amongst others since joining forces with American Top Team. His main strength lies within his ability to control fights both standing up and on the ground which makes him very dangerous regardless if he’s fighting in striking exchanges or grappling exchanges.
Looking at both fighters styles it appears that Rafael Dos Anjos might have slight edge when it comes down to overall experience as well as technique especially when it comes down to wrestling & grappling which puts him ahead slightly based off current form although both are elite strikers so its hard saying who will come out on top there too despite RDA having more boxing experience than Luque but nothing is certain until we get into battle! When you combine that with his natural size advantage plus having trained under some great coaches during time spent at ATT then its easy see why many think he could win this match easily when looking strictly through numbers/odds perspective given (-155).
Overall though even though I do feel like RDA should take home victory here if everything goes according plan due those factors mentioned above; Vicente Luque should definitely not be counted out entirely because taking anyone lightly inside octagon can lead disaster so don’t hold your breath unless fighter named gets hand raised end night! That being said still leaning towards picking Raphael dos Santos here due size advantage plus higher technical skillset combined proven track record against quality opposition recently leading me believe odds makers got right call making him favorite enter night getting chance upset going away from home crowd cheering loudly behalf fighter wearing blue corner!
