Vicente knows Tyron’s worth and hopes the fight will be good, “It is also an awesome fight, it is a guy who was the champion, he was a great champion. I definitely think it is a tough fight. But it’s a good fight to put in a good spot in the division.”

When asked about how he feels about what Woodley as an opponent and about what he has done for the sport, Luque was quick to point that out.

He said, “I’m also preparing for a much more aggressive Woodley. In his last couple of fights, he has been going for five rounds. I think everyone holds back in the first two rounds. But, in a three-round fight, I think he will open up and that is what I’m ready for.”

Duing the show Lique has talks about his style,” It is kind of my style. I go right in there and do what I got to do and get to the action quickly. It will be a high-paced fight. If he can handle the pressure, it will go the distance, but I am looking to finish him.”
