Prospects Vick and Hein Collide in Austin

Lightweights James Vick and Nick Hein have been walking through opponents in recent months, but on November 22, one prospect's hot streak will come to an end, as the two meet on November 22 in Austin, Texas.

Fighting in his home state for the first time since 2011, unbeaten Fort Worth product Vick is 2-0 in the Octagon thus far, defeating Ramsey Nijem and Valmir Lazaro after a stint on season 15 of The Ultimate Fighter.

German star Hein is undefeated in his last seven fights, a string that includes six victories and a win in his UFC debut in May over Drew Dober.

"He is a strong opponent, but the Sergeant is back on track and somebody will get arrested," said serving police officer Hein. "I’m looking forward to the fight, he’s a very good fighter and I always wanted to go to Texas – but this won’t be no sightseeing trip. I will take more than a cowboy hat home."

While he'll be fighting in his opponent's backyard for his US debut, Hein's exciting fight style will likely win him even more fans.
