Germany’s Nick Hein Comes Away With Hometown Victory

ufc fight night 69

Nick Hein moved over the train with Roger Huerta, showing off his new skills at UFC Fight Night 69 in earning a victory over Lukasz Sajewski in Germany.

The German-born fighter greeted his fans after with an emotion-filled interview.

“People always count you out and never believe, but you have to stand up for yourself,” he said.

Hein, a former Sergeant in the police force, got back on track after a loss last year to James Vick via decision. He handed Sajewski his first career loss in the process, and mentioned a possible bout in Japan for his next contest.

After debuting in the UFC with a win over Drew Dober in his first fight at lightweight, Hein (12-2) was able to do more of the same vs. Sajewski. He was the more aggressive fighter, landing 54 of 126 significant strikes and 64 of 137 overall, including a takedown.

Sajewski landed on just 30-percent of his significant strikes and was 37-for-97 overall.
