UFC Fight Night 135: “Gaethje vs. Vick” comes to Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb., on Aug. 25, 2018. Headlining the FOX Sports 1-televised card that is a pair of Lightweight contenders as No. 7-ranked Justin Gaethje (18-2) squares off with No. 11-ranked “Texecutioner” James Vick (13-1) for five rounds (if necessary).
Earlier in the night, a pivotal Bantamweight fight will pit “Cool Hand” Luke Sanders (12-2) against Brazilian jiu-jitsu legend Rani Yahya (25-9, 1 NC) in a contest that could put either within striking distance of their division’s rankings. Yahya has won six of seven bouts dating back to 2014, while Sanders recently rebounded from a two-fight skid with a big win on Gaethje’s last UFC card.
Sanders can’t afford to take the veteran Yahya lightly, but that didn’t stop the Nashville native from taking a little time out of his schedule for a special appearance. Award-winning rap star Andy Mineo needed someone to be his “opponent” in the music video, “I Ain’t Done,” and Sanders was “Cool” enough to get the nod.
Don’t miss UFC Fight Night 135 on FOX Sports 1 on later this month, but enjoy a lighthearted cameo by Luke Sanders in the video embedded above.
