Saint Preux will take on Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 282 on Dec. 10 in Las Vegas, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Saint Preux is coming off a split decision victory over Mauricio Rua back on May 7. That moved him to 4-6 in the UFC over his last 10 appearances. Gustafsson is hoping to taste victory for the first time since May of 2017.
Again gets best of Shogun Rua
Light HeavyweightUFC
May 7, 2022
Saint Preux defeated Mauricio Rua via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC 274 on Saturday in Phoenix.
ANALYSIS
This was the second fight between these two, and it's safe to say there won't be a third. OSP may have gotten the victory he came to Phoenix for, but his stock cratered in the process. Saint Preux fired a couple of effective body kicks in the early going, but that was about it. Thankfully for him, Rua accomplished even less. The fact OSP wasn't able to significantly damage a soon-to-be 41-year-old opponent who uses zero footwork defensively is highly, highly concerning. Saint Preux is a plus-athlete with some power and elite size for the light heavyweight division, but he turned 39 years of age this past April, and it's impossible to believe OSP's best days are ahead of him. On a positive note, this victory snapped a two-fight losing streak for Saint Preux and could have conceivably saved his job.

Saint Preux was looking to snap a two-fight skid, with both losses coming via TKO, and now it remains to be seen when he'll be back in the octagon. He owns a 15-12 record in UFC.
