After almost getting submitted, Vicente Luque turned it all around at UFC 265. Following two dangerous attempts by opponent Michael Chiesa on the mat, it was the Brazilian who reversed the position and caught ‘Maverick’ with a tight D’arce choke still in the first round. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the finish.
