Saturday night sees UFC Fight Night 73, live from Nashville, Tenn. The main-event is a light heavyweight clash between two top-10 fighters with dangerous punching power, and the winner will inch ever closer to potential title contention.
Ovince “OSP” Saint Preux and Glover Teixeira aren’t the absolute heaviest hitters in the division, but they tend to win most of their fights with stoppages. Here are some of their best knockouts to get you ready for their fight on Saturday.
Teixeira vs. Marvin Eastman, Shooto Brazil 25
At the time of this fight, Eastman was at the very tip of the tail end of his career, and Glover made short work of “The Beastman” with an overhand right in the first round.
Saint Preux vs. Cody Donovan, UFC Fight Night 26
This was a quick bout with a devastating finish. Donovan attempted a throw, but Saint Preux reversed and ended up in Cody’s full guard. That didn’t stop OSP from throwing some brutal ground and pound.
Those punches that sneak past Donovan’s defenses are heavy blows, and it doesn’t take many before the fight gets stopped.
