Video: Ovince Saint Preux picks up comeback win with head kick KO of Corey Anderson

Never count Ovince Saint Preux out.

One of the light heavyweight division’s most prolific finishers, “OSP,” added another highlight to his collection with a head kick knockout of Corey Anderson at UFC 217 on Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The thudding blow was made even more impressive by the fact that Anderson appeared to be on his way to grinding out a unanimous decision win over Saint Preux, who was competing for the second time in six weeks. Anderson let his guard slip for a brief second and that was all the opening that Saint Preux needed to connect with a kick that left Anderson flat on the mat in Round 3.

This was the third straight win for OSP, while Anderson has now been finished with strikes in his last two outings.

Watch the incredible fight-ending kick above.
