While fighting arguably the greatest MMA fighter of all time on less than two weeks notice is undoubtably a daunting task for most, Ovince Saint Preux believes he often does better in short notice fights.
“At times, I feel I do better on short notice,” Saint Preux said. “It’s going to get a little hectic in the next two, three weeks. But at least it wasn’t like that for the last three or four months, so I don’t have to do any adjustments at all. All the adjustment’s on (Jones). You look at me, and I’m a pretty good fighter. I can hold my own with the best of them.”
“Guys like that, you break them out of their pattern, and that’s what I intend to do,” he said. “If I have the opportunity to finish him, I’m going to go ahead and take that opportunity. I guarantee you, he knows, as well as his camp knows, I can do that if the opportunity presents itself.
“He’s a beast, and I’m a beast, too. We both can do some beast (expletive).”
