Two light heavyweights looking to get “in the mix” will meet in Singapore.
The UFC has added new bouts to their next event in Singapore, and one will feature a couple of ranked light heavyweights. The June show will play hos to a fight between Ovince Saint Preux and Tyson Pedro, according to MMA Fighting.
The UFC had officially announced the bouts, but then deleted their post. The fights are still happening though.
Saint Preux (22-11, 10-6 UFC) had a three-fight winning streak ended by Ilir Latifi his last time out. The three victories before that all came via finish, with two by the rare Von Flue choke.
Pedro (7-1, 3-1 UFC) finished Saparbek Safarov via submission in his last bout, and has won three of four in the UFC overall coming into what is probably the most important fight of his career.
UFC Singapore, also knowns as UFC Fight Night 132 goes down on June 23rd in the Singapore Indoor Stadium and will air on Fight Pass. The event will be headlined by a welterweight fight between Donald Cerrone and Leon Edwards.
