It was a much-needed move up in weight class for ‘The Texecutioner’ who was struggling to make the lightweight limit and had suffered three back to back losses, with two of them being a first-round knockout loss. Vick was doing considerably well in the fight and landed some decent punches and he followed up with some ground and pound and as he was moving ahead inside Price’ guard, ‘The Hybrid’ landed a clean up kick which knocked out Vick unconscious.

After the loss, Vick issued a lengthy social media message, where he revealed that he was embarrassed to get knocked out like that.

Been a couple of days reflecting on everything. I remember a few yrs ago after I had my first loss in the UFC my brother @lockloadedmma sent me this. It is definitely meaning alot to me right now. During this camp I focused so hard on fixing some of the technical issues I have had in the past. Especially keeping my hands up. And I feel I have made significant progress in those areas. Then I go out and get caught with a up kick 😥 such a low percentage move and super embarrassing to get hit with that. Props to my opponent @hybridufc for being able to land that type of move in high level fight. Much respect to you. To the people who support me thank you so much and the ones that don't I don't really care. I am going to continue to be me. I am Texas born and raised. A lifelong hunter and outdoorsman so I will continue to hunt and fish and post pictures of this kind of stuff so if this is something you hate then please just unfollow me. I am home now with minimum damage. My CT scan was negative. My lip is busted up and probably have a MCL torn in my right knee from landing on it weirdly. I am at home with my son and family and am at peace at the moment looking forward to the holidays with them. What the future holds only God knows but I have to much to be thankful for and a son that looks up to me to be negative and allow this stuff to keep me down. Thanks to all and God bless.
