Hein Debuts against Dober in Berlin

A lightweight matchup is added to the UFC's return to Germany on May 31...
Currently sporting a six fight unbeaten streak, Cologne's Nick Hein will make his UFC debut in his home country of Germany when he battles Nebraska standout Drew Dober at the O2 World Berlin on May 31.

A black belt in judo who has won four bouts by submission, the 29-year-old Hein (10-1, 1 NC) will be in tough against Dober (14-5), a Muay Thai specialist looking to bounce back from a November loss to Sean Spencer this May.

"I'm excited to get back in the cage and I'm going to be looking for the finish," said Dober, who is moving from welterweight to lightweight for the bout. "Nick is extremely tough, but I am hungry and it's my time."

Fight Night Berlin tickets go on sale to UFC Fight Club members on April 2, with newsletter code holders having the opportunity to purchase tickets on April 3 and a general sale beginning on April 4.
