Fresh off a win at UFC 197 last weekend, undefeated lightweight James Vick is turning right back around to fight at UFC 199 on June 4.
The UFC announced Friday that Vick is stepping in for an injured Leonardo Santos to take on Evan Dunham on the card at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.
The 29-year-old took part in The Ultimate Fighter’s live season in 2012, but didn’t make his official UFC debut until the following August. He’s won all five of his fights in the Octagon to move to a perfect 9-0 in his pro career, defeating Glaico Franca on last weekend’s event in Las Vegas.
Dunham enters UFC 199 on a three fight winning streak in a good 2015 run, coming after a three fight losing streak in 2013 and 2014. The 23-fight, 34-year-old veteran most recently defeated Joe Lauzon in December at The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale.
