UFC Fight Night: Saint Preux vs. Teixeira fight card

A look at the Saturday, August 8th UFC Fight Night card in Nashville, Tennessee, where light heavyweights Ovince Saint Preux and Glover Teixeira will do battle in the main event.

Believe it or not, next week's UFC Fight Night in Nashville is the last one for a whole 15 days! That's more than two weeks! What are we going to do? Anyway, next Saturday's show is a light heavyweight bout between Ovince Saint Preux and Glover Teixeira. OSP is coming off a big KO over Patrick Cummins, while Teixeira is trying to end a two-fight losing skid. The co-main is a highly intriguing one at 155 lbs, as Michael Johnson takes on Beneil Dariush.

The most notable preliminary card matchup is a women's bantamweight bout between Sara McMann and Amanda Nunes. Why it's on the Fox Sports 2 prelims is beyond me, but I don't call the shots. It's an important one for both women, particularly if Nunes wants to get a title shot vs. Ronda Rousey.

Here's what next week's event looks like:

Ovince Saint Preux vs. Glover Teixeira
