OSP, on the other hand, entered with a recent win over Shogun Rua, but he was not able to keep up with Lins’ relentless attacks. The opening moments saw Saint Preux launching a probing kick, which was met with a straight left hand from Lins, causing OSP to backpedal and cover up.
Lins seized the opportunity and unloaded a flurry of punches, throwing everything at OSP, including lefts, rights, and hooks. Despite the overwhelming barrage, Saint Preux managed to survive by covering up and circling out of harm’s way.
However, the respite was short-lived, as Lins relentlessly pursued OSP, and soon enough, he sent him crashing down to the canvas with a devastating blow. The win was a testament to Lins’ determination and his ability to overpower his opponents with his impressive striking skills.
