On 2nd December 2017, Oliveira suffered a disappointing loss courtesy of Paul Felder. However, he came back strong to the lightweight division and is now on a 6 fight win streak with 4 submissions and 2 KO wins. In the main card of UFC Sao Paulo, Charles Oliveira knocks out Jared Gordon in just 86 seconds, securing the second victory of this year.
The fight started with Gordon charging at Oliveira trying to put pressure early on. However, Oliveira kept his calm and engaged with a few leg kicks. Although a takedown attempt from Gordon against submission specialist, Charles Oliveira was surprising he was not able to secure the takedowns. With the most number of finishes in UFC by submissions, you would expect Oliveira to finish the fight via submission. However, this was not the case tonight.

While Gordo was charging at Oliveira he was caught with a beautiful right hand. Oliveira followed it up with a couple up quick uppercut that crumbled Gordon as the referee stopped the fight at 1 minute 26 seconds of round 1.
With this victory. Charles Oliveira is now on 6 fight win streak, and he has the second most finishes in UFC history(15) following the 16 finishes of Donald Cerrone. He also had the most performance of the night bonuses in UFC of 8, and after this performance, it’s safe to assume that he is getting another bonus for a spectacular finish.
“I don’t care who it is, I don’t care what name he has if they come in here it’s going to be a bad night”, said Oliveira after his win at Sao Paulo.
After the fight, Charles Oliveira called out Conor McGregor and Pual Felder and made it clear that he wants to fight a ranked opponent in his next fight.
