OSP faces De Lima in Nashville

 

Looking to break back into the win column, light heavyweight contender Ovince Saint Preux will get the opportunity to do it at home in Tennessee on Apr. 22 when he faces off with Brazil's Marcos Rogerio de Lima in UFC Fight Night action at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

In the five-round main event, which airs live on FS1, featherweight rivals will settle the score as surging contender Cub Swanson takes on hard-hitting European standout Artem Lobov. Tickets go on sale March 3.

A former Division I football player for the Tennessee Volunteers, Knoxville's Saint Preux has won seven bouts in the Octagon, earning victories over the likes of Shogun Rua, Gian Villante and Rafael Feijao. This April, he plans on adding the name of de Lima to that list, but the Brazilian power puncher, who is coming off a January TKO of Jeremy Kimball, is looking forward to testing the chin of OSP.
