Charles Oliveira may not be the UFC lightweight champion, but there is no doubting
who is the best lightweight on planet. Oliveira defeated Justin Gaethje in a violent sugar rush at UFC 274 on Saturday night.
Things, as usual during this lightweight title campaign, did not look good for Oliveira early.
Gaethje dropped Oliveira on two occasions in the opening round: first with a right uppercut and then with a left hook. "
The Highlight" was mindful to not engage on the ground with Oliveira and welcomed him to his feet.
Oliveira found his footing and responded with relentless pressure. Combination boxing, knees,
flying knees and a jumping front kick. "Do Bronx" found the home a right hand that seated Gaethje.
Oliveira immediately spun his web on the ground, transitioning from a rear-naked
choke to armbar to triangle armbar before sinking in a rear-naked choke that forced Gaethje to tap.
