UFC Copenhagen has just picked up an exciting light heavyweight contest to its card.

The UFC has announced that promotion veteran and light heavyweight knockout artist Ovince Saint Preux will be taking on Micha? Oleksiejczuk at the show. All the action goes down from the Royal Arena on September 28 from Copenhagen, Denmark.

“OSP” is currently on a two-fight losing skid after not having picked up a victory inside the Octagon since submitting Tyson Pedro in June of 2018. In his latest outing, the 36-year-old was submitted by Nikita Krylov in the second round of their UFC 236 meeting in April.

Now, he’ll take on Oleksiejczuk, who is on an 11-fight win streak. Oleksiejczuk made his promotional debut back in December of 2017 against Khalil Rountree. However, the result was ruled a No Contest after the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) overturned the original decision. Since then, Oleksiejczuk has picked up back-to-back first-round knockout wins over the likes of Gian Villante and Gadzhimurad Antigulov.

It will be interesting to see how Oleksiejczuk fares against a veteran such as “OSP,” who possesses some devastating knockout power and a slick ground game.

The UFC’s debut event in Copenhagen will entertain what promises to be a barnburner of a light heavyweight contest between Ion Cutelaba and Khalil Rountree.

The bout was officially announced by the promotion on Friday.

Cutelaba is coming off a submission defeat to former title challenger Glover Teixiera, but had previously won three of his last four.

As for Rountree, he most recently enjoyed arguably his most impressive win after dominating Eryk Anders via unanimous decision at UFC 236. The victory came following a knockout defeat to Johnny Walker last year. Before that, “The War Horse” notably knocked out Gokhan Saki.

Also announced earlier in the day was a women’s bantamweight matchup between Macy Chiasson and Lina Lansberg.

The card as it stands has three official bouts:

  • Thiago Alves vs. Gunnar Nelson
  • Macy Chiasson vs. Lina Lansberg
  • Ion Cutelaba vs. Khalil Rountree

UFC Copenhagen takes place at Royal Arena on September 28 and will be streamed on ESPN+. There is no headliner as of now, but it is expected to be a middleweight contest between Jack Hermansson and Jared Cannonier.

Jack Hermansson will be competing at UFC Copenhagen, but it won’t be against Kelvin Gastelum as expected.

According to mixed martial arts (MMA) manager Malki Kawa, his client, Jared Cannonier, will headline the September 28 card against Hermansson:

“Cannonier verbally agrees to fight hermansson in Copenhagen. Excited for this. Good work @LouDiBono

The show will be the Las Vegas-based promotion’s first from Denmark, which takes place from the Royal Arena. Cannonier comes off a TKO victory over former 185-pound king Anderson Silva at the UFC 237 pay-per-view (PPV).

As for Hermansson, he has been on a role as of late. The 31-year-old “Joker” is on a four-fight win streak over names such as David Branch and Ronaldo Souza. With another impressive victory at 185 pounds, it’ll be hard to deny the Swede a shot at the title.

However, the same could be said for Cannonier, who would be coming off a win over one of the greatest of all time, but also one of the top prospects in the entire promotion if he defeats Hermansson. It will certainly be interesting to see how things play out inside the Octagon between these two.

What do you think about the matchup between Hermansson and Cannonier?
