Luque (21-9-1 MMA) had entered the contest looking to rebound, this after having his four-fight win streak snapped by Belal Muhammad back in April. Prior to that setback, ‘The Silent Assassin’ was coming off four straight stoppage wins, which included finishes of Michael Chiesa and Tyron Woodley.

Meanwhile, Geoff Neal (15-4 MMA) was most previously seen in action at December’s UFC 269 event, where he earned a split decision win over Santiago Ponzinibbio. That victory was preceded by back-to-back decision losses to Neil Magny and Stephen Thompson respectively.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 59 co-main event proved to be a thrilling back and forth affair. Geoff Neal got off to a great start in the contest arguably earning a 10-8 in the opening round. However, Vicente Luque was able to turn the tide in his favor in round two and thus the contest would be decided in the third and final round. In the final frame Neal delivered a barrage of punches that eventually resulted in Luque face-planting on the canvas.
