Luke Jumeau willing to face Jake Matthews in rumoured November UFC card

Kiwi welterweight Luke Jumeau made his UFC debut in style on the weekend, defeating Dominique Steele on the under-card of UFC Fight Night 110.

Jumeau showed impressive takedown defence with his opponent failing with 10 straight attempts, allowing him to utilise his boxing combinations to claim the unanimous decision victory.

In a post-fight interview the 29-year-old showed interest in possibly facing Australian Jake Matthews who will be moving up a weight division after back-to-back losses at lightweight.

“I think maybe in November,” Jumeau commented when asked about when he would like to return in a post-fight interview posted by

“Let’s go again in November. They are having a show November. Put me on the pay-per-view and I will sell those numbers.

“Anyone, anyone. Jake Matthews! We’ve got like a little ANZAC thing. Whatever they want to do to sell because I know I will sell.”

The two have history, facing each other back in 2013 with Matthews securing a second round submission. It was the last time Jumeau suffered a loss, having won seven on the trot since then.
