It seems as though Ovince Saint Preux’s Heavyweight experiment was indeed just a one-fight deal, as “OSP” will stay in the Light Heavyweight division for his next fight, agreeing to fight Jamahal Hill at an upcoming “Fight Night” event on Dec. 5, 2020, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
After moving to the 265-pound division to face Ben Rothwell last May — which he lost via split decision — Saint Preux dropped back down to 205 pounds and knocked out Alonzo Menifield at UFC Vegas 9 last month, giving him his first win in the division in nearly one year.

Just signed a new contract with UFC and I’ll be back in action December 5th.
Hill, meanwhile, is currently undefeated (7-0-1, 1-0-1 UFC), though his last win under the UFC banner against Klidson Abreu in May was overturned to a “No Contest” after Hill tested positive for marijuana.
Now, the “Contender Series” alum will look to keep his win streak going against one of the most seasoned fighters in the division, who is looking to remind the weight class that he is still a threat and isn’t going anywhere.
The event is set to be headlined by an intriguing Middleweight bout between Darren Till and Jack Hermansson, while the co-main event will see Merab Dvalishvili battle Cody Stamann in Bantamweight action.
