UFC 274: Charles Oliveira vs Justin Gaethje – Fast Passed 1st Round War and Quick Submission Win
The main event fight at UFC 274 delivered just as promised a lot of excitement when Charles “do Bronx” Oliveira met ruthless Justin Gaethje.
There was a lot of drama ahead of this fight when champion Oliveira missed weight yesterday. The fighter was stripped of the title and was penalized a portion of his purse. As a result, only “The Highlight” Gaethje had the opportunity to take home gold in the main event fight.
The first round began aggressively. Oliveira managed to injure Gaethje early with hard strikes and knees against the body. Gaethje responded with lightning-fast hooks that got “do Bronx” Oliveira down on the canvas. These fighters didn’t hold back!
Oliveira managed to knock Gaethje down to the canvas later in the round and secured the fighter’s back. After a scramble, the Brazilian finally managed to find a rear-naked choke and chocked out “The Highlight” Gaethje!
“The champion has a name, and it’s Charles Oliveira!”
