On Saturday, Aug. 25, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 135: Gaethje vs. Vick from the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb.

In the night’s main event, former World Series of Fighting lightweight champion Justin Gaethje clashes with fellow top-10 fighter James Vick. Gaethje, who entered the promotion with an undefeated record, has dropped back-to-back fights against former champion Eddie Alvarez and top contender Dustin Poirier. However, all three of Gaethje’s Octagon appearances have earned “Fight of the Night” honors. Vick, meanwhile, has put together a 9-1 run since joining the promotion through The Ultimate Fighter 15. The Texas-based fighter has stopped five of those nine victories.

The 13-fight event kicks off with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 2, with the six-fight main card airing live on Fox Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET.
