The finishes kept rolling in earlier tonight (Sat., Nov. 4, 2017) at UFC 217 from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, as former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Ovince Saint Preux pulled off a huge knockout win over New York native Corey Anderson.
The always pressuring Anderson dominated most of the action early. Saint Preux was able to land really good shots along the way, but Anderson controlled him throughout with power wrestling and strong clinch work. That was until OSP landed an absolute missile of a head kick in Round 3 that instantly cut Anderson’s lights off. The referee waved it off and Saint Preux walked away with the come-from-behind knockout.

With this performance, Saint Preux locks down one of his best knockout finishes of his UFC career and improves his current divisional win streak to three. If he can win one more outing, especially in this sort of fashion, the former collegiate football star may find himself on a short list of worthy title contenders.
