Overall Record: 12-5
Promotion: Strikeforce

2012 Forecast:
Ovince St.Preux experienced a rough transition from collegiate football player to mixed martial artist. He began his career off 3-4 overall as he lacked the overall experience and ground skills to compete against high-level wrestlers such as Rodney Wallace and Nik Fekete. In 2010, things began to click for “OSP.” He won 6 straight fights in 2010, 3 of which came in Strikeforce. St.Preux earned fans’ respect by accepting a fight with veteran Benji Radach, just days after winning a hard-fought decision over Antwain Britt. St.Preux outlasted Radach, showing a much-improved wrestling attack. St.Preux should have faced a contender in his next fight, but instead he was relegated to fighting on Strikeforce Challenger cards against virtually unknown opposition. After winning consecutive fights, St.Preux got his wish, earning the opportunity to face top contender Gegard Mousasi. St.Preux struggled early in his fight with Mousasi, but nearly rallied back in the final round. It was a solid showing for St.Preux and proved he belonged with the few elite fighters of the Strikeforce light heavyweight division. St.Preux still needs to develop his overall confidence in the cage and on the ground, but he has shown huge growth in the last couple of years. St.Preux is an explosive athlete and once he raises his overall skill level, he should be a solid contender for years to come.

Hello everyone! I truly appreciate your support for RankingMMA and my efforts towards providing MMA World Rankings, UFC Rankings, Prospect Rankings, and Analysis. I started this site way back in 2006 (originally named MMAsurvival until 2009) as a huge MMA fan with absolutely no web design or blogging experience. Over 10 million page views later and 13 years later, the site continues on because of you! The first few years of the site I produced daily content from fight announcements, rankings, and fight card previews and analysis. That effort eventually slowed down as my career took off. Since then, I focused on some passion projects such as writing my first book, The World’s Top MMA Fighters in 2012 and the MMA Prospects Report in 2013. With a full-time job and family, my available time continued to shrink over the last 5 years. I do my very best to update all rankings sections weekly and will be working on new content for the site. It has been an amazing experience to see the sport globalize. Over 30% of my site traffic now comes from outside North America. You must know that your support is what has kept me updating the site all these years. Please feel free to email me at dcross@rankingmma.com or leave a comment on the site. Cheers, DC
