Check out the UFC on FOX 28 live blog below.

Round 1: Jorge Alonso the referee for this main card bout. Saint Preux pawing at Latifi, he has a significant reach advantage. Latifi firing low kicks to the outside of Saint Preux’s lead leg. “OSP” switching stances, not throwing much. He’s dodging back out of the way of Latifi’s brief punch flurries, but Latifi looks to be ahead midway through the opening frame just based on having landed more strikes (few significant). Short left hand sneaks in and Latifi knocks “OSP” down. Latifi is all over him, landing several more hard shots from back position. Saint Preux tries to grab the cage to stay upright, but stumbles. More short punches from Latifi. He gets “OSP” in a front facelock and tightens it up. Saint Preux goes to sleep.

Official result: Ilir Latifi def. Ovince Saint Preux by technical submission (guillotine choke) at 3:48 of Round 1
