UFC fighter Joaquin Buckley stopped Vicente Luque in the second round during their bout at the UFC Fight Night card at the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Buckley won the co-main event at 3:17 into the second round.

This was the third TKO (punches) on the main card. Nursulton Ruziboev also defeated Seqriques Dumas by TKO (Punches) in the first round.

Plus, Kyle Nelson also won by TKO (Punches) over Bill Algeo.

With the win, Buckley improved to 18-6 in his MMA career. He is now on a three-fight win streak in the UFC.

During this win streak, he also has a TKO (head kick) win over Andre Fialho at UFC Fight Night on May 20th, 2023. This bout was his return to Welterweight.

Buckley has won 13 of his 18 wins by knockout.

The “New Mania” will hope to use this win to get a fighter within the Top 10 in his next bout and continue to climb the ladder to the top of the division. He is in a stacked field that presently sees Leon Edwards as the champion. 

“The Silent Assassin” Luque, who was born in Westwood, New Jersey, before moving away, fell to 22-10-1 with the loss. This was his second knockout loss.

He has been knocked out in two of his last three fights. He was also knocked out by Geoff Neal at UFC on ESPN 40 on August 6th, 2022.

Luque was born in Westwood, which is a town in Bergen County, in North Jersey. At the age of six, his parents had separated and he moved to Brazil.
