At the Fight Night 132 co-main event, former light heavyweight interim title challenger Ovince Saint Preux got back on winning ways after derailing the rise of upcoming Tyson Pedro.

Saint Preux faced adversity earlier on after absorbing Pedro’s question mark kick and eventually getting dropped by a straight right. Pedro secured a guillotine choke but didn’t get the required elevation to sink in the choke. Saint Preux secured a figure four position from the top to lock a straight armbar, thus making quick work of Pedro. Saint Preux now wants to get back inside the octagon. He is willing to get in there in as early as two weeks.

“Knowing me, next can be two weeks from now,” he told reporters after submitting Pedro. “I’ve taken fights on two weeks’ notice. But sooner than later.”

Saint Preux had a full camp for his preparation against Pedro and wishes to do the same next time as well however for a former opponent, he would make an exception. Saint Preux is ready for a rematch against Jimi Manuwa who got the better of him at UFC 204 back in 2016.

“Hell yeah,” he said. “Can’t wait.”

“I’m a different type of fighter, period,” he said. “There’s some fights that I’ve learned from, and ones that I want to take back, but at the end of the day, that’s why I’m the most active fighter in the 205 division. I’m not fighting once a year, once every two years.”

“Rankings don’t mean anything to me,” he said. “I don’t get paid because I’m ranked. I get paid because I fight.”
