Ovince St. Preux will square off against Tyson Pedro in a light heavyweight duel at UFC Fight Night 132.
The promotion announced the matchup on Sunday, as well as a welterweight showdown between Jake Matthews and Shinsho Anzai and a flyweight clash pitting Matt Schnell against Naoki Inoue. UFC Fight Night 132 takes place at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore on June 23. Broadcast plans for the event have yet to be revealed.
St. Preux had a three-fight winning streak snapped in his most recent outing when he tapped to an Ilir Latifi guillotine choke in the opening round at UFC on Fox 28 on Feb. 24. Prior to that, “OSP” had earned successive finishes of Corey Anderson, Yushin Okami and Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
Pedro has been victorious in three of his four Octagon appearances, including a first-round submission of Saparbek Safarov at UFC 221. The 26-year-old Australian is 7-1 as a professional overall, with all of his victories coming inside the distance. His lone defeat came at the hands of Latifi via decision at UFC 215.
