OSP puts light heavyweight and heavyweight division on notice

November 1, 2015 8:09 am by Evan Bell

Ovince Saint Preux is looking to play the role of ‘Donald Cerrone’ for the UFC’s higher weight-classes.

After losing via submission to Glover Teixeira back in August, OSP is looking to get back in the Octagon sooner rather than later with hopes of returning to the win column.

He spoke to FOX Sports:

“I’m healthy, I’m motivated, and I can’t wait to fight again. When do I want to fight again? I’d fight tomorrow if someone would step up. When [heavyweight contender] Stipe [Miocic] got hurt [before last week’s UFC Dublin card] I tried to get Joey to set up me as the replacement fight vs. [Ben] Rothwell.”

“Who do I want to fight? Anyone. Light heavyweight, heavyweight, whoever. There’s a card in Florida in December [How about] Me vs. [former 205lbs champ] Rashad Evans? He’s ranked number six, and I’m ranked number five. That makes sense. There’s a card in London in February. Me vs. Jimi Manuwa makes sense. Heck, everyone else is calling out Michael Bisping. I’ll fight Bisping, too. It’s not in me to not want to compete. Especially now that I’m coming off of a loss. I just want to get back in the cage, knock someone out, and get back to winning.”
