Luque (21-8-1 MMA, 14-4 UFC) believes he's closer than ever to winning the UFC welterweight title ahead of Saturday's co-main event with Geoff Neal.
Geoff is the only thing on my mind right now.
After a setback, he's closer to a championship battle than he's ever been.
Luque, ranked No. 8 in the latest USA Today Sports/MMA Junkie rankings, will face No. 15-ranked Neal on the card at the UFC Apex, which airs on ESPN and is streamed on ESPN+, on Saturday night.
It has the potential to be the most exciting match of the night.
