Preview

After a pair of defeats to start his UFC career, 27-year-old Khalil Rountree has reeled off two first-round KO victories in a row–one against Daniel Jolly in February, and another against Paul Craig in July–and now gets a huge opportunity as the main event on the preliminary portion of a PPV event.

Standing in his way will be Michal Oleksiejczuk. The UFC newcomer, who replaced kickboxing legend Gokhan Saki on the card, is 12-2 in his MMA career and carries a nine-fight winning streak that includes seven knockout victories. He boasts big-time KO power, and considering what Rountree has done in his last two fights, this has a chance to be a really entertaining fight.

Throw in a couple of other intriguing bouts, and though there are only five total preliminary it should still be a good lead-up to the main card.
