It lasted less than a minute.
After a long night of 10 fights with six judges decisions, Mauricio Shogun and Ovince St-Preux stepped on the octagon a little before 4:00AM in Brazil.
As if he knew the crowd was tired, St-Preux sent the audience on its way after only 34s of round 1.
A precise left hit Shogun on the side of the head and sent the Brazilian to the canvas.
St-Preux finished the job quick and earned his 17th win in MMA.
“I will still be a fan of Shogun but to be a legend, you need to beat the legends,” said St-Preux.
About the setback, Shogun said: “I was really well-trained, and I always feel obligated to do my best. Fights in this division are like this, and he got the win.”
Here are the full results of the night in Brazil.
