A pair of light heavyweights have been signed to UFC Fight Night 35, as Thiago Silva will meet Ovince St. Preux.
Officials added the contest to the January 15 card from Duluth, Georgia. The event features a headline fight between Luke Rockhold and Costa Philippou.
Silva (16-3) has won seven of his 10 UFC bouts, but has dealt with several failed drug tests. He has won his last two, defeating Matt Hamill and Rafael Cavalcante.
St. Preux (14-5) picked up wins in both of his UFC fights since moving over from Strikeforce. As a former Tennessee Volunteer football standout, OSP will be returning to the south to fight in the heart of SEC country.
