UFC Vegas 69 UFC video: Philipe Lins beats Ovince Saint Preux in 49-second knockout


Philipe Lines looked great on Saturday.

The Brazilian light heavyweight needed just 49 seconds to knock out veteran Ovince Saint Preux with a flurry of strikes on the preliminary portion of UFC Vegas 69.

Watch the video above to see the quick finish.

Lins stormed towards OSP right out the gate. The 26-fight UFC veteran was not able to recover and all he did for the rest of the fight was to raise his arms to try to end the barrage. Lins kept Saint Preux off the attack, but continued swinging wildly. Lins continued to score unanswered hits, so referee Mark Smith was forced to save the game.

Lins (16-5) is now 2-2 in the UFC and 2-0 since dropping down to light heavyweight. The 2018 PFL heavyweight champion has recorded back-to-back wins against Saint Preux and Marcin Prachnio.

For Saint Preux (26-17), this is the third time in his past four fights that he has lost by knockout, and the first time he’s failed to make it out of the first round since a submission loss to Ilir Latifi in February 2018.
