Peep the highlights of the fight courtesy of the UFC’s official Twitter account:
Preux was coming into this fight on a two-fight losing skid after not having picked up a victory inside the Octagon since June 2018 where he submitted Tyson Pedro. His previous outing saw him get submitted by Nikita Krylov in the second round of their UFC 236 showdown back in April.
Oleksiejczuk was on an 11-fight win streak heading into this fight after he made his promotional debut back in December of 2017 against Khalil Rountree. The fight was ruled a No Contest after the NSAC overturned the original decision. Oleksiejczuk has moved on in a big way as he racked up back-to-back first-round knockout wins over Gian Villante and Gadzhimurad Antigulov.
