UFC on ESPN+ 10: Derrick Krantz in for Neil Magny vs. Vicente Luque

Vicente Luque has a new opponent for Saturday night’s UFC Rochester event.

Neil Magny withdrew from the scheduled welterweight co-main event on Monday, then Tuesday, he revealed he had to drop out due to a potential USADA violation.

Now, Luque will square off against a longtime regional competitor eager to make a big first impression.

Derrick Krantz has signed to the UFC, and will face Luque on Saturday night. His Longview MMA/Team 515 gym broke the news over Instagram:

Krantz (22-10), out of Marshall, Texas, has won two straight fights and five of his past six. Twenty of his 22 career wins are by way of a finish.

Luque (15-6-1 MMA; 8-2 UFC) is riding a four-fight winning streak. His memorable victory over Bryan Barberena at UFC on ESPN 1 is almost certain to place high on the Fight of the Year list.
