“This is a fight where the UFC is going to see who they are going to put to the next level,” Luque told MMA Junkie. “Who are they going to put against the top guys and who is going to be in the top 15 eventually? This is definitely a test the UFC is doing with us, and I’m really excited for that.”

Luque will be entering this fight riding a four fight winning streak. During that streak, Luque has gotten a finish in each of those fights and that’s a great feeling for him.

“It’s the longest streak I’ve had in my career as an MMA fighter, and for sure it feels great,” Luque said. “(I’m) trying to keep focused (and) not let it come to my head. I feel like I’m evolving every fight. That’s what I’m still looking for. I’m trying to learn as (many) new things as I can so I can go out there and show that evolution and fight in a different way.”

UFC Fight Night 107 takes place on Saturday, March 18 from The 02 in London, England with Jimi Manuwa and Corey Anderson headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
