Nick Hein will square off against Luigi Vendramini in a lightweight bout at UFC Stockholm, promotion officials announced Monday.

UFC Fight Night 152 takes place at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, on June 1 and is headlined by a light heavyweight tilt pitting Alexander Gustafsson against Anthony Smith. The card will stream in its entirety on ESPN+.

Hein went 0-2 during his 2018 campaign, losing to Davi Ramos via first-round submission at UFC 224 before dropping a split verdict against Damir Hadzovic at UFC Fight Night 134. The 34-year-old German began his UFC tenure with victories in four of his first five appearances.

Vendramini had a rough Octagon debut, as he was knocked out by an Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos flying knee in the second round of their bout at UFC Fight Night 137 on Sept. 22. The 23-year-old Italian began his pro career with eight straight victories, all coming inside the distance.
