Tonight’s UFC Vegas 16 event was co-headlined by a light heavyweight bout featuring veteran Ovince Saint Preux taking on undefeated prospect Jamahal Hill.

‘OSP’ had missed weight by 1.5 pounds for tonight’s fight and thus had to forfeit twenty percent of his purse to his opponent.

Saint Preux (25-14 MMA) most previously competed at September’s UFC Vegas 9 event, where he scored a second round knockout victory over Alonzo Menifield. Prior that win, Ovince had suffered a split-decision loss to Ben Rothwell in a heavyweight bout.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 16 co-main event ended in the second round after Hill landed a plethora of knees and punches to the body and head of ‘OSP’ which forced the referee to step in and intervene.
