Ovince Saint Preux was kind of in a lose, lose situation on Friday, but he still managed to buzz the MMA world with his performance at UFC Fight Night Japan.
The reasons OSP was in somewhat of a no win situation, was because he faced Yushin Okami, who accepted the fight on just a few days notice, and moved up two weight classes to take the bout. So, if OSP lost, obviously it would have been a major setback, and if he won, as he did, he was supposed to…
But, in the end, Saint Preux finished Okami with a Von Flue Choke, marking the third time he’s used the move to win a UFC bout. Since that’s unheard of, a lot of folks are talking about the quick victory.
After the bout, OSP spoke with the UFC’s Megan Olivi about the memorable win, and his abilities with the Von Flue Choke. You can check it out below.
