OVINCE SAINT PREUX VS ALONZO MENIFIELD LOWDOWN

Thankfully, Ovince Saint Preux (OSP) is healthy after testing positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago which forced him and Alonzo Menifield off the UFC Vegas 7 card.

OSP returns after his venture up at heavyweight back in May. He ended up losing a split decision to Ben Rothwell, but the veteran looked comfortable against the rotund slugger. That loss was his fourth in six fights and now he would love nothing more than to get back to build on his win against Michal Oleksiejczuk in September with another Von Flue or more like a ‘Saint Preux’ choke.

Menifield got derailed in his last fight which was against Devin Clark back in June. The tank was boasting a perfect record finishing all of his fights, but Clark subdued Menifield sealing a decision and handing Menifield his first loss.

OVINCE SAINT PREUX VS ALONZO MENIFIELD PREDICTION

If OSP plays this safe, he can easily stifle the knockout threat by tying Menifield up in the clinch and even wearing him down into a submission. If he decides to stand and trade, he has the ability to find a knockout, but you have to back Menifield’s explosiveness if the fight stays on the feet for any length of time. A Menifield knockout or a late OSP submission is your best bet.

Winner: OSP via Submission
