Nick Hein will make his featherweight debut against Zabit Magomedsharipov at UFC Fight Night 115, promotion officials announced Friday.

UFC Fight Night 115 takes place at Ahoy Rotterdam, in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on Sept. 2 and is headlined by a heavyweight duel between Stefan Struve and Alexander Volkov. The card will be televised on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Hein went 4-1 at 155 pounds since joining the UFC roster in 2014, with his only defeat during that time coming at the hands of James Vick. However, the Cologne, Germany, native has not yet earned a finish during his promotional tenure. He last competed at UFC Fight Night 93 this past September, when he outpointed Tae Hyun Bang.

Magomedsharipov will be making his Octagon debut with a 12-1 professional mark. The 26-year-old Dagestan native last appeared at Absolute Championship Berkut 45, where he scored a first-round technical knockout victory against Valdines Silva. He has finished 10 of his 12 triumphs inside the distance.
