The Dec. 17 event takes place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas and features Jared Cannonier vs. Sean Strickland in a five-round middleweight headliner. Silva is expected to be cleared to fight in March 2023.
Oleksiejczuk (17-5, 1 no contest) most recently fought in October, knocking out Sam Alvey in under two minutes in his middleweight debut. The Polish talent won three of his past four inside the octagon, including a first-round knockout over Shamil Gamzatov at 205 pounds.
Duraev (15-4) looks to rebound from a doctor stoppage loss to Joaquin Buckley this past June. The setback snapped a 10-fight streak that dated back to his ACB days in 2015. Duraev finished seven of those 10 opponents, including five submissions.
