Luke Cummo Bio
Luke Joseph Cummo (born April 27, 1980) is a former mixed martial artist who appeared in the second season of the reality TV series The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV. After winning two exhibition fights, he made it to the finals where he was defeated by Joe Stevenson by decision in a close bout. Cummo gained recognition on the show due to his personality, vegan and unorthodox diet (which according to Joe Rogan includes urine therapy when sick), his striking ability and his love of comic books. He was also the last person picked for a team on the show, fighting throughout the show as the underdog.
Cummo fights out of Long Island, where he attended Chaminade High School (class of 1998) in Mineola, New York and works with (Matt Serra) Serra Jiu-Jitsu and Ray Longo's IMAA. Even though Cummo lost to Joe Stevenson at The Ultimate Fighter 2 finale, his performance earned him a UFC contract. Although his grappling ability has been improving, his primary style remains Muay Thai kickboxing. He also holds a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu purple belt. He graduated Nassau Community College with a degree in Biology.
In his first match under a UFC contract at UFC Ultimate Fight Night 4, he defeated Jason Von Flue via unanimous decision. In his next fight, he was defeated by Canadian fighter Jonathan Goulet, who scored a decision victory over Cummo with superior wrestling and ground control.
His last fight was a unanimous decision loss to Tamdan McCrory at UFC 87. His UFC record stands at 3 wins and 4 losses.
