Ovince Saint Preux vs. Tyson Pedro among Singapore's UFC Fight Night 132 additions

June’s UFC Fight Night 132 fight card card in Asia has a trio of new bouts.

One of the more intriguing ones is light heavyweights Ovince Saint Preux (22-11 MMA, 10-6 UFC) vs. Tyson Pedro (7-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC), UFC officials today announced (via Facebook):

UFC Fight Night 132 takes place June 23 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. Broadcast plans and the full fight card haven’t been announced.

Saint Preux is No. 10 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA light-heavyweight rankings, and Pedro is an honorable mention.

Saint Preux, a 35-year-old Strikeforce vet and now five-year UFC fighter, was riding a three-fight winning streak – with stoppages victories over Marcos Rogerio de Lima, Yushin Okami and Corey Anderson – before a recent submission loss to Ilir Latifi in February. He now meets Pedro, a 26-year-old Australian slugger. After stoppage wins in his first two UFC fights, Pedro also suffered a loss to Latifi. But he recently rebounded with a kimura win over Saparbek Safarov in February.

Additional previously unreported bouts for the card include welterweights Jake Matthews (13-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) Shinsho Anzai (10-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and flyweights Matt Schnell (10-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) vs. Naoki Inoue (11-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).
