Charles Oliveira isn’t the authority champion. Be that as it may, he’s the hero.
Oliveira, under very troublesome conditions, submitted Justin Gaethje by means of back exposed gag only 3:22 into the first round of their lightweight fight at UFC 274 inside Footprint Center.
Oliveira (33-8) was planned to shield his title against Gaethje (23-4) at UFC 274 yet was deprived of the belt rather subsequent to missing load by a portion of a pound on Friday. It implied that going into Saturday’s battle, just Gaethje could win the belt; assuming Oliveira won, it would stay empty.
Assuming that affected Oliveira’s attitude, it was just a positive one. The Brazilian contender was super forceful from the initial ringer. He staggered Gaethje, who is from Arizona, promptly with a right hand and tossed kicks to the body. Gaethje answered in kind. He dropped Oliveira two times in the extremely short battle, once with a left snare and again with a right. The twice Gaethje ventured back and permitted Oliveira to get up.
Oliveira, 32, even pulled monitor at a certain point, however Gaethje, 33, eased off. Nonetheless, it was a right give over the center by Oliveira that dropped Gaethje once more and was the start of the end. Oliveira followed him to the floor and set up a triangle then a back bare stifle. Gaethje would not tap and went oblivious.
