Luke Joseph Cummo is a 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, 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. After his performance on The Ultimate Fighter 2 Finale, he was signed to a contract by the UFC. Although his grappling ability has been improving, his primary style remains Muay Thai kickboxing. He also holds a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu purple belt.
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 unanimous decision victory over Cummo with superior wrestling and ground control.
His last fight was a decision loss to Tamdan McCrory at UFC 87. His UFC record stands at 3 wins and 4 losses.

Luke and his wife Lara have a son, Zachary Michael Cummo, who was born on October 7, 2007. The couple is currently expecting another child.
Cummo has endorsed urine therapy, which is the drinking of one's own urine. He has also stated that before a big fight he likes to have a coffee enema. He has stated that this gives him an advantage over the competition due to the supposed nutritional benefits that it provides.
On Monday, October 20, 2007, Cummo was arrested by the Nassau County, New York Police Department for DUI.
