Ovince Saint Preux has returned to Twitter this week to make his first comments since his short notice loss to Jon Jones at UFC 197. The 33-year-old is staying positive in spite of the loss, and the broken arm suffered during the bout.

Penick’s Analysis: It was a gutsy effort, especially with the injury happening during the bout, and he deserves credit for sticking in there against the best in the world on short notice through 25 minutes. He took some considerable damage throughout the fight, even though there were some lengthy moments between spurts of offense. Regardless, he did his best under the circumstances, and that commendable performance will get him further featured spots when he’s healed up and ready to return.
