Charles Oliveira is an absolute animal!
Slow motion footage captures just how impressive the Brazilian was during his bout with Justin Gaethje, in particular when ending the contest.
A beautiful straight right down the middle, finished off with a slick entrance into the submission. Gorgeous!
Despite missing weight before his UFC 274 outing, the former lightweight champion completely dominated Gaethje, submitting him in round one.
Justin had success of his own, though, dropping Charles with two big power punches that sent him to the floor. Oliveira recovered well, however, as his opponent seemed reluctant to follow him to the ground.
After early drama, Oliveira landed a clean shot on Justin, dropping the American in brutal fashion.
The slow-motion footage captures this moment perfectly, the beautiful connection shut Justin’s lights out momentarily, before he got caught up in a nasty rear naked choke.
As soon as the fight hit the ground, it was all but over. Oliveira’s impressive groundwork is just too much for anyone to play around with. Justin paid the price as he lay unconscious on the canvas.
Oliveira will not walk away with the belt, however, after he failed to make weight the day before his second title defence.
Despite not having the belt wrapped around his waist, it is clear that there is a true ruler of the 155ers.
Charles is an absolute beast, and he is here to take over!
