Ovince St. Preux UFC 159

A light heavyweight match up has been added to the UFC Fight Night 35 event that goes down in Duluth, GA early next year. Knoxville MMA’s  Ovince St. Preux will meet Brazilian Thiago Silva at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, GA.

OSP has started 2-0 in his UFC career after coming over from Strikeforce. His first fight was lackluster and ended with an eye poke. He was much more dominant in his second outing as he knocked out Cody Donovan in Boston. He has won 11 of his last 12 fights with the only loss coming to Gegard Mousasi back in December of 2011 under the Strikeforce banner.

Thiago Silva returns to American soil for the first time since January of 2011. Since then he has been suspended twice and failed to make weight for his last fight against Matt Hamill. One high point was the fight of the night and knockout of the night honors at UFC on Fuel TV when he was victorious over Rafael Cavalcante.

Middleweights Luke Rockhold and Costa Philippou headline the nights action that will air live on FOX Sport 1. Here is a look at the current UFC Fight Night 35 lineup. For more on this event stay close to ProMMAnow (www.prommanow.com).
