At one instance of time it seemed as if Tyson Pedro would have his hands raised in his fight against Ovince St. Preux at UFC Singapore, however the tables turned quicker than a lot of people expected. OSP, using his wrestling, secured a kimura from the top position and turned it to an armbar, forcing the 26 year old Australian to tap just 6 secs shy of the 3 minute mark in the very first round.
Despite having had two losses in his last three fights, Pedro is still a very ripe prospect for the organisation in which he has spent the major part of his professional career. The reason is very simple – Pedro is still only 26 years old.
The fact that Pedro still has time ahead of him to improve his skill set is something that he has reminded himself both before and after the fight.
After the loss Pedro, took to Instagram to thank his well wishers for all th messages he had received after his loss.
Pedro is still the youngest fighter in the top 15 rankings in what has been a relatively shallow division of the UFC lately.
