Light-heavyweights #6-ranked Ovince St. Preux (18-7-0) and #14-ranked Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante (12-6-0, 1NC) have been added to the UFC 196 card in Las Vegas.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Earlier this year OSP looked like the next breakthrough star, but suffered a tough loss to Glover Teixeira to halt the momentum.
Meanwhile, Cavalcante is a former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion, but has struggled in the UFC. He’s 1-3-0 in the company, and suffered a tough loss to Patrick Cummins at UFC 190.
Both fighters need an impressive performance to move forward.
UFC 196 features a heavyweight title rematch in the main event, as Fabricio Werdum takes on former champ Cain Velasquez.
