November 9, 2014 11:27 am by BJPENN.COM News


Ovince Saint Preux KO’d MMA legend Shogun Rua last night in the main event of UFC Fight Night 56 in just 34 seconds, pulling off an impressive comeback in a bout he stepped into on short notice.

OSP spoke at the post-fight press conference about the finish, and even admitted he was surprised.

“I thought I could win this on my feet. It’s bad to be aggressive against me. I was a little surprised. When I landed the overhand, I said I might as well finish the fight. I was surprised.”

“I don’t think he was slow at all. The thing about me is that I’m super explosive and I can take you to the ground super quickly. I think he mistook my reach so I was able to catch him. I don’t think he’s slow, he still have it. He hit me with a couple of good leg kicks.”
