UFC Fight Night 73 will be held on August 8, 2015 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
The main event features a light heavyweight bout between #6 ranked Ovince Saint Preux and #4 ranked Glover Teixeira.
Teixeira (22-4 MMA) is currently riding his first two fight losing streak of his career. Starting his UFC career as 5-0 , Teixeira earned a title shot against then champion Jon Jones at UFC 172. Jones would end up dominating proceedings en route to a unanimous decision win. Looking to bounce back from this loss, Teixeira then fought Phil Davis at UFC 179 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but would go on to lose this fight, also by unanimous decision.
Saint Preux (18-6 MMA) has looked impressive since his main event loss unanimous decision loss to Ryan Bader at UFC Fight Night 47. TKO wins over Maurício Rua and Patrick Cummins have OSP on the right track towards a future title shot.
The co-main event features an exciting lightweight matchup between Kings MMA’s Beneil Dariush and Blackzillians’ Michael Johnson.
