OSP Vs Rafael ‘Feijao’ Set For UFC Fight Night in November

A light-heavyweight match-up between Ovince St. Preux and Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante has been announced for a forthcoming UFC Fight Night event in Brazil on November 8th.

St. Preux is coming of a unanimous decision loss to Ryan Bader at the UFC Fght Night 47 event just a couple of weeks ago which was his first loss in five fights since joining the promotion from Strikeforce in 2013. Despite the loss OSP still remains at No.10 on the 205lb rankings.

As it happens, ‘Feijao’ is also coming off a unanimous decision loss to the aforementioned Bader at UFC 174 back in June. Another former Strikeforce fighter where he once held the light-heavyweight title, ‘Feijao’s’ record in the UFC to date has been patchier than his opponent, mustering just one win and two losses so far, leaving him ranked No.12.

The UFC Fight Night event in Brazil will be one of two events the promotion has planned for November 8th, with another also being planned to take place in Australia earlier the same day.

at present OSP Vs ‘Feijao’ is the only fight named for the Brazil show and at this time it’s not clear whether it will serve as the main event or not.

Over the years I've watched the UFC develop into the powerhouse it is today, organizations like PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC rise and fall, and Bellator emerge as a new force on the MMA landscape. Throughout it all I've remained captivated by the sport and I'm excited to cover what comes next here on MMA Insight.
