Recommended Posts

A light heavyweight matchup is in the works for a yet-to-be announced UFC event this February.

A bout between former interim title challenger Ovince Saint Preux and former LFA champion Ryan Spann in the works for a Feb. 8 event. The card is currently being targeted for Houston.

Two people with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the prospective booking but asked to remain anonymous because the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

In September, Saint Preux (24-13 MMA, 14-9 UFC) rebounded from back-to-back losses when he submitted Michal Oleksiejczuk at UFC on ESPN+ 18 in Copenhagen. Saint Preux’s method of submission? His signature Von Flue choke.

It was the fourth time Saint Preux had pulled off the rare submission under the promotion’s banner. The submission has only been successfully carried out six times in UFC history.

His opponent Spann (17-5 MMA, 3-0 UFC) is riding a seven-fight winning streak. After punching his ticket to the UFC on the inaugural season of “Dana White’s Contender Series,” Spann defeated Luis Henrique by unanimous decision in his promotional debut.

In his sophomore outing in October, Spann knocked out Brazilian legend Antonio Rogerio Nogueria in vicious fashion. Spann followed up his first UFC stoppage by strikes with his first submission. In his most recent outing, Spann submitted Devin Clark in the second round.
