Ovince St.
will remain on the
UFC 282
card against a third different opponent, as the light
heavyweight veteran will now square off against Antonio
on Dec. 10.

Multiple outlets have confirmed the new booking, and it has been
updated on broadcast partner ESPN’s event page. St. Preux was
booked first against Alexander
and then against Philipe
before both opponents withdrew from the card for
undisclosed reasons.

UFC 282 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and is
headlined by a showdown for the vacant light heavyweight title
between Jan
and Magomed

A veteran of 28 Octagon appearances, St. Preux is coming off a
split-decision victory over Mauricio Rua
in a rematch at UFC 274 this past May. “OSP” will look to put
together his first winning streak since besting Marcos
Rogerio de Lima
, Yushin Okami
and Corey
in succession in 2017.

Trocoli has competed just once since a 2019 appearance on Dana
White’s Contender Series resulted in a no contest. In his last
outing, the 31-year-old Brazilian submitted Reslley Menezes in the
opening stanza to improve his career mark to 12-3.
