UFC 174: Ovince St. Preux Says Cracking Top 15 Ranks “Wasn’t Good Enough”
By FCF Staff
Things are going extremely well in the career of Ovince St. Preux right now, but as the light-heavyweight approaches his UFC 174 bout with Ryan Jimmo, he continues to re-set his goals.
OSP will face Jimmo armed with a four fight win streak, which has moved him into the promotion’s coveted top 15 rankings. While speaking to UFC.com about his recent success, however, the 31 year-old relayed:
“Being in the Top 15, that wasn’t good enough for me. It’s an accomplishment in and of itself, but it’s not over yet,” said OSP, who is currently ranked #14. “Now my thing is to break into the Top 10. Once I break into the Top 10, then it’s the Top 5. Once I break into the Top 5, then it’s the championship.”
Most recently, St. Preux (15-5) choked out Nikita Krylov with a first round choke at UFC 171 in March.
Jimmo (19-3), on the other hand, is coming off a first round, KO win over Sean O’Connell in April.
UFC 174 will be hosted by Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on June 14th.
