Luque (21-8-1 MMA, 14-4 UFC), 30, will look to rebound from a main event setback against Belal Muhammad at UFC on ESPN 34. Prior to the unanimous decision loss, Luque ripped through the division, rattling off four-straight stoppage victories. Niko Price, Randy Brown, Tyron Woodley, and Michael Chiesa all received losses on their record by the hands and submission skills of Luque.

On the other side, Neal (14-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC), will aim to keep the momentum going following a split decision win over Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC 269 in December. The 31-year-old Dana White’s Contender Series veteran won five straight after his entry into the promotion, including wins over Belal Muhammad, Niko Price, and Mike Perry.

With the addition, the Aug. 6 lines includes:

  • Thiago Santos vs. Jamahal Hill

  • Vicente Luque vs. Geoff Neal

  • Miranda Granger vs. Cory McKenna

  • Stephanie Egger vs. Mayra Bueno Silva
