Ovince Saint Preux switched things up for his short-notice UFC 217 fight vs. Corey Anderson. Instead of finishing his opponent with another “Von Flue” choke (or “Von Preux” choke, if you prefer), OSP scored a fantastic head kick KO in the third round. It’s the third consecutive win for Saint Preux and another brutal knockout loss for Anderson.
Watch the finish in the video below:

It’s already been a memorable night in terms of highlight reel knockouts. Earlier on Saturday night’s card, fans at Madison Square Garden witnessed Ricardo Ramos flatten Aiemann Zahabi with only the second spinning elbow KO in UFC history.
