Card set for UFC Fight Night 108 in Nashville, including OSP, Ortiz, “Hot Sauce”
The UFC is set to return to Nashville on April 22, as UFC Fight Night 108 takes place at Bridgestone Arena. The Music City fight card has been finalized with a total of 13 bouts, including local favorites Ovince St. Preux, Dustin Ortiz, and Scott Holtzman.
St. Preux (19-10, 7-5 UFC) will be part of the main card on FS1, as the Knoxville product takes on Marcos Rogerio de Lima (15-4-1, 4-2) in a light heavyweight bout. Once a top contender at 205 pounds, the former Tennessee Volunteer linebacker has lost three straight. His last outing was just last month, when he dropped a split decision to UFC newcomer Volkan Oezdemir at UFC Fight Night 104. De Lima comes in off of a win over Jeremy Kimball in his last outing in January.
Franklin, Tennessee native Ortiz (16-6, 5-4) looks to continue to climb the rankings at flyweight, as he is currently ranked No. 7 in the division. Now living in Milwaukee and training at Roufusport, he looks to build off of a win over Zach Makovsky in his last outing. He is set to face upstart Brandon Moreno (13-3, 2-0) as part of the FS2-televised prelims.
Also in action will be Holtzman (9-2, 2-2), who looks to move his promotional record above .500. The last outing for “Hot Sauce” was a loss, as he fell to Josh Emmett at UFC on FOX 22 in December. He’ll face Michael McBride (8-2, 0-1) on FS2.
The fight card is headlined by a featherweight bout, as Conor McGregor training partner Artem Lobov (13-12-1, 2-2) takes on veteran Cub Swanson (24-7, 9-3). The co-feature pits Al Iaquinta (12-3-1, 7-2) and longtime UFC stalwart Diego Sanchez (27-9, 16-9).
