Octagon newcomer Jalin Turner didn’t last long earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 6, 2018) at UFC 229 from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, when welterweight finisher Vicente Luque quickly took him out via first-round knockout.
While Turner utilized his long range to land jabs early, Luque was too quick in his counter shots. After Turner partially landed a spinning back fist, Luque returned favor with a right hand. Turner fell to the canvas and Luque jumped on top for ferocious left hands that put the Octagon newcomer out.

With this performance, Luque secures his seventh finish in as many wins. The 26-year-old is really starting to look like the real deal at 170 pounds so it will be interesting to see how he performs as he ascends the jam-packed welterweight ladder.
