OSP Meets Feijao in UFC 196 Bout

Two explosive light heavyweight contenders collide in Las Vegas on Saturday, February 6, as the number six-ranked Ovince Saint Preux battles 14th-ranked Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante on the UFC 196 card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

UFC 196 is headlined by the world heavyweight championship rematch between Fabricio Werdum and Cain Velasquez.

Tennessee's Saint Preux announced his arrival to the elite tier of 205-pounders with his back-to-back knockouts of Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Patrick Cummins, and while he lost his last bout in August to Glover Teixeira, his effort earned him Fight of the Night honors.

Former Strikeforce champion Cavalcante will also be seeking a return to the win column in February after losses to Cummins and Ryan Bader, and where the powerful "Feijao" is concerned, victory is always just one punch away.
