The sixth UFC welterweight Vicente Luque admitted that he is not going to fight his fellow Sanford MMA gym mate Gilbert Burns, even if their confrontation will have a chance to fight for the division title.
“It is crazy because I just fought a guy he fought and now it will be the other way around. This is why we always help each other,” Luque said to BJPENN.com. “I’ve fought Wonderboy and knows how he moves in there, so I will let Gilbert know everything I can for him to get the win. I will help him with whatever he needs and I think it is a good matchup for Gilbert.”
“We have already said we won’t fight each other. We are more than friends, we are brothers,” Luque said. “Our families are super close and we have a relationship that is different than most teammates. We will figure something out. Both of us want to be champions and that is what we will work for. We both want each other to be champions. For now, there are many other guys we can fight.”
