Geoff Neal looked impressive on Saturday night vs Vincente Luque.
Neal drew praise for his performance at UFC Vegas 59 after he dominated the sixth-ranked welterweight Luque. Neal was able to viciously knock out Luque in the third with a flurry of uncontested punches.

After the fight, Neal called out former welterweight title contender Gibert Burns.
“I’ve been looking forward to fighting Luque or somebody like Luque,” Neal said. “He brought the dog out of me. I get a tendency to take off the second round. That’s just dumb. I came back in the third round and took him out.”
Honestly, I’ve been looking at Gilbert Burns,” Neal said. “I want him next.”
Burns immediately responded by saying that he was down to fight Neal if Jorge Masvidal turns him down.
“Finally someone called me out! About time! Congrats @handzofsteelmma
✊🏾✊🏾 Let’s see if Jorge will show up! Otherwise we might dance 🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️ #UFCVegas59
