Luque vs. Muhammad 2 – Alexander Volkanovski predicts the winner of the rematch between Vicente Luque and Belal Muhammad

UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski has shared his thoughts on the upcoming rematch between Vicente Luque and Belal Muhammad.

The first fight between Luque and Muhammad was supposed to be a three-round welterweight bout. It took place in November 2016 at UFC 205 and saw Luque defeat Muhammad by KO in the first round.

The 170-pound mainstays are now primed to clash again in the octagon, but this time in a five-round welterweight bout.

In an issue of Selection of MMA professionals With James Lynch, Volkanovski expressed his appreciation for Luque and Muhammad ahead of their welterweight rematch this month. However, he chose Luque to emerge victorious against Mohammed.

Volkanovski explained:

“Luque’s good, man. He’s a dangerous fighter. Belal, he’s obviously tough at it too. So this is going to be a good matchup. But I think I have to go with Luque.”

Luque’s most recent fight was a first-round submission win over Michael Chiesa at UFC 265 in August 2021. Meanwhile, Muhammad’s most recent fight was a unanimous decision win over Stephen Thompson at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Daukaus in December 2021.
