UFC on Fox 15 looks like it has a second light heavyweight bout set for the card, with the addition of Ovince St. Preux vs. Patrick Cummins. Each man will be looking to move up in a division that is currently in flux. The news was reported by MMA Fighting.

St. Preux (17-6, 5-1 UFC) rebounded from his first UFC loss to Ryan Bader by knocking out Mauricio Rua in just 34 seconds in the main event of UFC Fight Night 56 in November. That effort earned him his second performance of the night check in the promotion.

Cummins (7-1, 3-1 UFC) has looked excellent his his short-notice debut against Daniel Cormier, most recently taking a unanimous decision win over Antonio Carlos Junior at UFC Fight Night 58 in December.

It is unclear if the bout will be on the main card of the Fox event, which is set for April 18th in Newark, NJ. Here's a look at the current card.

Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold
Felice Herrig vs. Paige VanZant
Jim Miller vs. Paul Felder
Ovince St. Preux vs. Patrick Cummins
Aljamain Sterling vs. Manny Gamburyan
Chris Dempsey vs. Eddie Gordon
Corey Anderson vs. Gian Villante
