Strikeforce Challengers 17 Results: Ovince St. Preux Mauls Joe Cason

Ovince St. Preux welcomed Joe Cason to Strikeforce with a beating. St. Preux, or OSP as he is known, forced Cason to tap to strikes at 1:12 of the first round at Strikeforce Challengers 17. 

OSP improves to 4-0 in Strikeforce's light heavyweight division. After his win he called out former champ Gegard Mousasi and Renato Sobral. He credited his coach Eric Turner as well as his time at the Team Quest and Grudge training camps.  

Cason scored the first blow with a straight right but soon walked into a gnarly combination of punches. Then St. Preux landed a crushing knee that dropped Cason. OSP flirted with a rear naked choke briefly, but then elected to finish it with ground and pound. 

A replay showed that OSP was attempting a round house kick that Cason charged into, the resulting collision of St. Preux's knee and Cason's chin sent the formerly undefeated rookie staggering to the mat. It was over quickly from there.
