AUSTIN, Texas – James Vick wants a matchup with one of the UFC’s top lightweights because he doesn’t think anyone ranked below him will agree to a fight. Vick (13-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) picked up his ninth victory in 10 UFC appearances on Sunday when he defeated Francisco Trinaldo (22-6 MMA, 12-5 UFC) by unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 126, which took place at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, and aired on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

He said neither was willing to agree to a bout, though, and he doesn’t expect that to change now.
