Ryan Bader vs. Ovince St. Preux fight video preview: UFC Fight Night 47


Ryan Bader takes on Ovince St. Pruex in the main event of tonight's (Sat., Aug. 16, 2014) UFC Fight Night 47 event at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine on Fox Sports 1. Find out what each guy had to say in advance of their light heavyweight showdown.

Bader:

"I am the most dangerous fighter OSP has faced. I've been in the Octagon with the best in the world and he hasn't. This is his first step up in competition and when he feels how strong I am, how hard I hit, that's going to break his spirit and he's going to quit. I know I can finish OSP, and I expect to finish OSP. This is going to be the best performance anybody's ever seen.

St. Pruex:

"Before I walk out, I have my walk out music so it kind of puts me in the zone, kind of calms me down. I always tell myself 'I got either 8 seconds or 25 minutes'. Every time I'm in there, I'm trying to knock somebody's head off. I'm in a five fight winning streak right now. I definitely feel the momentum is in my favor. I'm not the type of guy who you're just going to punch and put away. I'm an MMA fighter. I'm known for thowing punches. I'm throwing a punch, I'm trying to put my fist behind your head. If I take you to the ground, I have the power to knock you out. If you feel something funny happening to you that means that some type of submission is coming and whatever you put in front of me is going to break."
