Two of the biggest UFC 174 winners will collide in Bangor, Maine.

UFC officially announced Wednesday that light heavyweights Ryan Bader and Ovince St. Preux will meet at the UFC Fight Night 47 main event at Bangor’s Cross Insurance Center on August 16.

Bader (17-4) scored a dominant victory over former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael Cavalcante last Saturday as he won back-to-back fights for the first time since 2012. In his previous UFC appearance, the Ultimate Fighter season 8 winner defeated Anthony Perosh.

St. Preux (16-5) enters the Octagon riding an impressive five-fight win streak, capped off by a second-round submission victory over Ryan Jimmo in Vancouver. With only one loss over the last 14 bouts, OSP is unbeaten in the UFC with wins over Nikita Krylov, Cody Donovan, Gian Villante and Jimmo.

Headlined by Bader vs. OSP, UFC Fight Night 47, the UFC's first event in Maine, will also feature Shawn Jordan vs. Jack May, Tim Boetsch vs. Brad Tavares and Sam Alvey vs. Tom Watson.
