UFC Fight Night 117: Results From Japan

Yushin Okami

For the third time in his career, Ovince Saint Preux locked up a Von Flue choke, submitting Yushin Okami Friday night in the main event of UFC Fight Night 117.

Okami replaced Mauricio “Shogun” Rua on short notice, returning to the Octagon in Japan.

But Saint Preux spoiled that return, securing the finish less than two minutes into the main event from the Saitama Super Arena.

In the co-main, Jessica Andrade dominated Claudia Gadelha, winning a decision in a meeting of former strawweight title contenders.

Dong Hyun Kim, Gokhan Saki, Teruto Ishihara and Jussier Formiga all claimed wins on the main card, with Keita Nakamura, Syuri Kondo, Shinsho Anzai and Daichi Abe earning victories on the prelims.
