UFC Fight Night: Luque vs. Muhammad 2 will be live from UFC APEX in Las Vegas this Saturday, April 16. ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ (English and Spanish) will carry the main card at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT and ESPN+ will exclusively stream the Prelims at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT.

The main event features a rematch between two top-10 welterweights, No. 5 Vicente Luque (21-7) and No. 6 Belal Muhammad (20-3). The two meet again after Luque knocked out Muhammad in just 79 seconds back in 2016. More than five years later and with dozens of fights under their belts, they go head-to-head as welterweight title contenders and the potential to meet Kamaru Usman down the line. Luque is coming off a four-fight win streak including two first-round submission wins last year over Tyron Woodley and Michael Chiesa. The Brazilian has won 10 of his past 11 fights. Meanwhile, Muhammad has gone 10-1 with one no contest verdict in his 12 bouts since losing to Luque the first time and is coming unbeaten in his last seven fights. This will mark Muhammad’s second main event at UFC.

The two 29-year-olds are members of the Dana White’s Contender Series Class of ’21. Borralho comes with seven straight victories and is unbeaten in his last 10 bouts. Omargadzhiev is unbeaten in his 13 professional appearances.
