Ovince Saint Preux:
“The finish was just a chicken wing like we all used to do in high school wrestling back in the day. A lot of guys used to call it the ‘Redneck’ and you would use it to turn someone over. I’m still young in the sport and I’m improving all the time. I have a lot to learn and every fight can’t be perfect. After this finish and the Von Flue choke previously I’m sure a lot of people will expect the unexpected. The truth is that I work out in an unorthodox gym with unorthodox guys and this is normal for us. That’s beginners stuff for me. Stay tuned there’s much more to come!”
“The chicken wing didn’t do anything really. I think it was a kick to the forearm that damaged my arm. When I tried to pivot and push off the canvas after the takedown I felt my arm snap and I let the referee know that I couldn’t continue.”
