Ovince St. Preux vs. Shogun Rua knockout video from UFC Fight Night 56

PRIDE died.

It's up to Mark Hunt to bring PRIDE back to life at UFC 180 next weekend because Ovince St. Preux used his fists to hammer Shogun Rua into a deep coffin in the main event of UFC Fight Night 56 last night (Nov. 8, 2014) in Uberlandia, Brazil. Rua, once regarded the best light heavyweight on the planet, blitzed his foe early and paid a heavy price, going stiff when he was hit with a counter left hook clean across the chin. And while the referee didn't immediately step in, St. Preux gave him no real chance to recover. It took all of 34 seconds to come to the crushing realization that Shogun will simply never be the fighter he once was. He's now lost four of his last five fights and was knocked out in the last two. Was this the end? Should it be?
