Alex Oliveira vs. Niko Price On-Board For UFC Fight Night 192

Alex Oliveira and Niko Price have agreed to fight at UFC Fight Night 192 in Las Vegas on October 2nd.

The clash of welterweight veterans comes at a time when Oliveira is coming off back-to-back submission losses against Randy Brown and Shavkat Rakhmonov.

He was on a two-fight winning streak before that with decision wins against Max Griffin and Peter Sobotta last year, but it should be noted that looking through a broader lens those are the 33-year-old’s only two victories in his past seven fights in the UFC.

As for Price, his all-action kill-or-be-killed style has led to a pattern of one-win, one-loss for almost his entire 5-5 (+2nc) record, though it should be noted the two no-contests were fights that he won, but were later amended due to him testing positive for marijuana.

So this is a match-up that should provide plenty of entertainment on a UFC Fight Night 192 card that’s set to be headlined by light-heavyweights Anthony Smith and Ryan Spann, while Ion Cutelaba vs. Devin Clark and Jim Miller vs. Nikolas Motta are also set to appear on the line-up.
