Highlights! Watch Vicente Luque strangle Hayder Hassan with an anaconda choke at 'UFC Orlando'

Talk about the right way to win a rematch!

Vicente Luque wasn't happy about the judges' decision in his first fight against Hayder Hassan on The Ultimate Fighter: Season 21, losing via a split in the 12th episode and missing an opportunity to reach the finale.

He made good tonight (Sat., Dec. 19, 2015), however, with a quick finish over his former TUF rival.

Luque started the fight aggressively, backing up Hassan against the cage and pressuring the power puncher who was known for bullying fighters with his own aggression on the reality show. Luque showed disdain for Hassan's power, pushing forward and landing a shot that caused the American Top Team fighter to shoot for a single leg.

Luque took the opportunity to grab his neck and wrap up a slick anaconda choke (see above). The Blackzilian fighter moves to 8-5 as a professional fighter, while Hassan falls to 6-3, dropping his second fight inside the UFC Octagon.
