Hein Injured; Tuck to Face Emmett

A late injury to Nick Hein has forced him from his UFC Fight Night bout against Jon Tuck this Sunday, but unbeaten lightweight prospect Josh Emmett will step in on short notice to face the "Super Saiyan" in Rotterdam.

UFC Fight Night is headlined by the heavyweight showdown between Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski. FOX Sports 1 will air the bout.

A little over three years into his UFC career, Jon Tuck is intent on making his move to the next level among the lightweight elite, which means that every win has to make a statement that he’s ready for that level. He’s impressed so far with finishes of Jake Lindsey and Tae Hyun Bang, but he must keep it going against Josh Emmett.

A member of the renowned Team Alpha Male squad, Emmett has been steadily building his resume, winning all nine of his pro fights, including a January TKO of UFC vet Christos Giagos that has propelled him into the big show against Guam's Tuck, who is coming off a Performance of the Night submission of Tae Hyun Bang.
