Following the removal of Thiago Silva from his UFC 171 bout against Ovince Saint Preux on March 15, rising Ukrainian star Nikita Krylov has stepped up and down at the same time, agreeing to face OSP in Dallas while also deciding to move down from heavyweight - where he recently knocked out Walt Harris in 25 seconds - to 205 pounds for the UFC 171 main card fight. Saint Preux is currently riding a three fight winning streak that includes UFC wins over Gian Villante and Cody Donovan.
