Oleksiejczuk vs. OSP added to UFC Fight Night Copenhagen
UFC Fight Night Copenhagen has gained another light heavyweight showdown in the form of Michał Oleksiejczuk versus Ovince Saint Preux. Scheduled for the September 28th event in Denmark, the fight joins another light heavyweight clash between Ion Cutelaba and Khalil Rountree Jr as announced last week.
Fighting out of Barki, Poland, Michał Oleksiejczuk (14-2-1 NC) will look to continue his unbeaten streak which dates back to November 2014. After having his UFC debut against Ion Cutelaba scrapped for a potential USADA doping violation against the Moldovan, things didn’t really improve for Oleksiejczuk as his UFC debut victory over Khalil Rountree Jr. was over turned into a No Contest after the Polish fighter failed a drugs test which resulted in a one-year ban from the sport.
After his ban was up, Oleksiejczuk put the past behind him to notch up his first two legitimate wins in the UFC with first-round victories over Gadzhimurad Antigulov Gian Villante in February.
Ovince Saint Preux (23-13) comes into this bout on the back of two defeats after losses against Nikita Krylov (rear naked choke) at UFC 236 and Dominick Reyes (unanimous decision) at UFC 229. Fighting in the UFC for over six-years, OSP will be entering the Octagon for the twentieth time when he meets Oleksiejczuk in September.
UFC Fight Night Copenhagen will take place at the Royal Arena on Saturday 28th September.
