The return of Yushin Okami didn’t last all that long last night (Fri., Sept. 22, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 117 live on FXX from inside the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, when he encountered the strong grappling game of Ovince Saint Preux.
To much surprise, Okami attempted an early takedown that resulted in him ending up underneath OSP. Once Saint Preux moved over into position, locked his arms and dug his shoulder into the Japanese fighter’s neck, he was able to find a home for yet another sensational Von Flue choke. It is the third time OSP has successfully pulled off the rare submission.

With this win, Saint Preux not only locks down his second-straight victory but he yet again proves he possesses one of more unique submissions in all of UFC. The former UFC light heavyweight title challenger still needs to string a few more wins together to get back into the title hunt, but this showing will help him gain more divisional steam moving forward.
