By FCF Staff
Ovince St. Preux quickly silenced the crowd tonight at UFC Fight Night 56 in Uberlandia, Brazil, as he needed just over 30 seconds to stop that nation’s “Shogun” Rua.
Shortly into the bout, Rua was dropped by a left hook as he charged in, and St. Preux finished the former light-heavyweight champ with a series of punches.
