TUF Alums Vick and Franca Meet in Vegas

Unbeaten as a pro, The Ultimate Fighter 15's James Vick will seek his fifth UFC victory when he takes on TUF Brazil 4 winner Glaico Franca in a lightweight matchup set for the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 23.

UFC 197 is headlined by the light heavyweight championship rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones and the flyweight title fight pitting Demetrious Johnson against Henry Cejudo.

Looking to follow up a Performance of the Night win over Jake Matthews with another signature victory, Vick will be facing off with a true finisher in Franca, who submitted Fernando Bruno last August to win the TUF Brazil 4 crown.
