Ovince St. Preux will have the opportunity to get himself back in the win column against Marcos Rogerio de Lima on April 22 in his home state of Tennessee.

The UFC announced the matchup on Friday.

St. Preux (19-10) is currently facing a rough skid in his MMA career having gone 1-4 in his last five outings. His most recent loss came at the hands of UFC newcomer Volkan Oezdemir by split-decision at UFN 104 earlier this month. His other recent losses are a knockout to Jimi Manuwa and decisions to Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira. His last win was a decision over Rafael Cavalcante in February 2016.

De Lima (15-4-1) is 2-2 in his last four fights and is coming off of a first-round TKO win over Jeremy Kimball last month. Prior to that, he was stopped by Gadzhimurad Antigulov with a guillotine in just over one minute.

UFC Fight Night 108 will be held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee and will be headlined by a featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov.
