Luque Replaces Good at UFC 205

Currently sporting a three-fight winning streak in which he has finished each victory before the final horn, former Ultimate Fighter standout Vicente Luque has now accepted a spot on the historic UFC 205 card in New York City's Madison Square Garden, where he will face Belal Muhammad on November 12.

The opportunity to face Muhammad arrived when it was announced Monday that Lyman Good was removed from the event after a potential Anti-Doping violation caused him to be provisionally suspended by USADA.

The UFC 205 card, which is headlined by a trio of championship fights featuring the lightweight title bout between Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor, airs live on Pay-Per-View.

Brazil's Luque may have lost his bout to Michael Graves at the TUF 21 Finale in July of 2015, but since then, he has submitted Hayder Hassan and Alvaro Herrera and knocked out Hector Urbina, cementing his place as one of the 170-pound division's top prospects, a title shared with Muhammad, who is coming off a third-round TKO win over Augusto Montano in September.
