Ovince Saint Preux Out Of UFC Vegas 42 Matchup With Philipe Lins

Ovince Saint Preux

UFC Vegas 42 has taken a hit as Ovince Saint Preux will no longer be competing.

The former light heavyweight title challenger was set to take on Philipe Lins in a 205-pound matchup on the main card taking place next Saturday night.

However, that will no longer be the case after “OSP” had to pull out as per MMA Junkie. The promotion would announce the news on the UFC 268 post-fight show as well.

It is currently unclear if Lins will remain on the card and fight a short-notice replacement.

Saint Preux Will Wait To Snap Losing Streak

Saint Preux is currently on a two-fight losing streak following back-to-back knockout defeats to Jamahal Hill and Tanner Boser. In total, he has lost three of his last four outings. He will have to wait before he can hope to return to the win column.
