Ovince Saint Preux was successful in his fifth UFC main event Friday when he defeated short-notice opponent Yushin Okami with his specialty submission in the UFC Fight Night 117 main event.

After original headliner “Shogun” Rua fell out with injury less than a week ago, Saint Preux (21-10 MMA, 9-5 UFC) accepted a matchup with replacement opponent Okami (34-11 MMA, 13-6 UFC). He made the most of his advantage, pulling off the first-round submission victory via Von Flue choke in the FXX-televised light heavyweight headliner at Saitama Super Arena in Japan.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Saint Preux’s victory over Okami at UFC Fight Night 117.
