UFC Vegas 51 Results: Belal Muhammad outclasses Vicente Luque in the main event

17 April 2022

UFC FIGHT NIGHT: LUQUE vs MUHAMMAD aired live in Asia on Sunday, April 17 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. Multiple fights showcased the movement in the welterweight division, and slew of prospects had their chance to shine.

Styles make fights and the hot welterweight division saw a real one when #5 Vicente Luque tested out his striking against strong wrestler #6 Belal Muhammad. As has been the trending case at the top echelons of the sport, wrestling proved to be the winning factor as Muhammad used it to gain the edge and dominate control time across five rounds. With victory coming by way of a unanimous decision, Muhammad said,

"This is the hump I had to get over: he knocked me out, he beat me. I had to think about that my whole camp. I respect the guy. I knew it was going to be one of my hardest challenges, and now I'm ready. I showed that I can do it all: I can strike with the best, I can grapple with the best, and I can wrestle with the best."

Fellow Dana White's Contender Series stand out middleweights Caio Borralho and Gadzhi Omargadzhiev delivered an exciting, high level performance. Borralho mounted an excellent second round but threw an illegal knee when Omargadzhiev was grounded, and he couldn't continue. The bout was stopped and went to the scorecards, giving Borralho the win by unanimous decision. Borralho said,

"I didn't want to win like this, but I was dominating the entire fight. I trained with Demian Maia for eight years, so when I get your back, you're not going to get out. I didn't see his, knee, so I'm sorry to everyone. This just my beginning."

China's Alatengheili opened the event in perfect form when he entered the Octagon against Kevin Croom in their bantamweight bout, getting off his powerful overhand right and following up with punches to get the TKO in just 47 seconds.

China's Wu Yanan and Mayra Bueno Silva earned the Fight of the Night award for their stylistically intriguing 3-round battle. Wu showed a marked improvement, but it wasn't enough to sway the judges who gave Buen the unanimous decision.

Bangers Andre Fialho and Miguel Baeza continued the welterweight slugfest with a back and forth four minutes, and it was Baeza who walked away with the victory by TKO late in the first round.
