Vicente Luque vs Chad Laprise is an exciting match-up between two very destructive strikers. They are both full of confidence and hoping to add another impressive finish to their record and make a dent in the stacked welterweight division.

In his last six fights, Luque is 5-1 with the loss coming to top contender Leon Edwards in a decision. His wins however were phenomenal – knockouts to Belal Muhammad and Hector Urbina and submissions over Alvaro Herrera, Hayder Hassan, and Niko Price in his last fight.

Since winning The Ultimate Fighter back in 2014, Laprise is 6-2 in the UFC but is coming off three sublime performances – three knockouts to Thibault Gouti, Brian Camozzi and Galore Bofando.


Although they have eight submission wins between them, they are fully expected to stand and bang in a technical slugfest so it will be surprising if these aggressive finishers withstand the three rounds.

This fight could easily be finished on the ground but that would be as a result of a strike. This is not a fight to place your money on as it could go either way and end at any time. Their striking accuracy will be the key factor and with the reach advantage of Luque, he just gets the nod.

Winner: Luque via KO/TKO
