Ovince St. Preux believes that he's now ready to face notable fighters to test his standing in the light heavyweight division.

Almost two years ago, Ovince St. Preux was an unknown MMA fighter with a losing record searching for a rebound. When he returned to action in February of last year, he finished Brett Chism with a 75-second TKO finish, and Chris Hawk with a 47-second upset at : Nashville’s preliminary card. His performance caught the attention of the promotion’s brass, leading him back to twice. It was responded with a victory over Benji Radach and Antwain Britt. In addition to this, he also obtained wins over Jason Day and Claudio Godoi. Then by the end of 2010, Ovince St. Preux anchors a 6-0 record.

The Strikeforce light heavyweight fighter continued the run in 2011 by garnering a decision win over Ron Humphrey last January. It was followed by a victory over Joe Cason at last Friday’s Strikeforce . After that, Ovince St. Preux calls out for Gegard Mousadi and . However, he insisted that no disrespect was intended. In a post-fight press con, Ovince St. Preux explained that he’s answering a challenger who he admits he was not ready to fight with a few months ago.

It is no brainer that and Renato Sobral could each provide a stern measuring stick for Ovince St. Preux. With three Challenger Series wins and a pair of Arena Series victories anchoring his resume, it calls for a perfect time to test Ovince St. Preux’s standing in Strikeforce’s light heavyweight division.

“I think I kind of showed myself. Anytime somebody asks me to do something, I do it. I just think it’s my time, so I’m calling out a couple of people.”
