Ovince Saint Preux won a moral victory of sorts, going the distance with former UFC light heavyweightJon Jones on Saturday night at UFC 197, in a fight he took on three weeks notice. And now UFC president Dana White reports OSP did it with a broken arm.

“OSP broke his arm,” said White to Megan Olivi on the FOX Sports 1 post fight show, as transcribed byYahoo Sports. “I think he had a broken arm in the fourth and fifth rounds.”

In a post-fight, in-Octagon interview with Joe Rogan, OSP identified something as having happened even earlier.

“(Jones) kept a fast pace and really picked it up in the fourth round,” he said. “And in the second round he hit my arm with a high kick that has my arm hurting right now.”

Whether it was in the fourth  or fifth round, or the second, or any round at all, going the distance with Jon Jones is something only four men had managed to do previously. And doing so with a broken arm is, well, it’s a moral victory.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
