Local favorite announced for Berlin event UFC® FIGHT NIGHT: GUSTAFSSON vs. TEIXEIRA

London – UFC® today announced that German fan-favorite Nick “Sergeant” Hein has been added to UFC® FIGHT NIGHT: GUSTAFSSON vs. TEIXEIRA, as he looks to take on Polish debutant Lukasz Sajewski. 

In the days following the announcement of main event match-up GUSTAFSSON vs. TEIXEIRA, interest in the event and demand for tickets soared.

This latest bout will no doubt be well received by fans in the German capital, with local boy Hein returning to the venue in which he made his debut for the UFC® in 2014. For Sajewski, meanwhile, the event will mark his first opportunity to step into the Octagon, and no doubt the Polish lightweight will be looking to continue his run of form which sees him unbeaten in his professional career at 13-0-0. 

Hein said: “I can’t wait to fight in Berlin again. I will never forget how the fans supported me last year, I still get goosebumps thinking of it. German fans are simply the best ! I just came back from my first trainingscamp in Thailand and are already burning to step back into the octagon.”

A battle between Niklas Backstrom and Noad Lahat will also feature on the Berlin fight card alongside the main event which sees No.2 ranked light heavyweight, Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson make his return to the Octagon to face No.6 ranked, Glover Teixeira, in what is set to be an explosive five round main event. 

Tickets to the highly anticipated UFC® FIGHT NIGHT: GUSTAFSSON vs. TEIXEIRA will go on sale on Friday, April 24. Fans can register their interest for tickets here: www.o2world.de/UFC2015
